Course: WOOD220 Moulder Operation
Students receive comprehensive instruction on moulder setup, operation, template procedures, tool referencing and machine preventative maintenance. The course begins with a review of machine safety protocol and then progresses to machine terminology, identifying the different types of moulders, cutter head styles, feed beam, beds & various fence functions and adjustments, rollers, guides, and the feed system components (consisting of the drive motor, Carden drive, gear boxes, drive feed wheels, springs and air cylinders). The course also focuses on identifying wood types, lumber grades, warping, moisture content, and the properties of wood. This understanding helps woodworkers differentiate between natural wood flaws and machining defects requiring troubleshooting such as snipes, tear outs, burns, chatter, and lines.
