Modern Technology Moving To Machine The Benson Machine shop has just received a new Apple lle computer, equipped with two disk drives, and a line printer. ln time it will be connected to the CNC mill, that is, it will be ableto showthe path ofatool on a screen, without actually running the toolg also, it will allow direct programming into the Bridgeport mill. When the budget allows, the shop will have a tape reader and writer to assist the computer. The Apple ll also has the capability to be hooked up to a CNC lathe. Elsewhere in the shop, there are two students working on special technical projects for the Professional Engineer's Contest at the Tech Show. The Machine shop is patiently awaiting the arrival of a new milling machine to replace the one that no longer correctly works. "l enjoy the shop because l feel it has a definite impact inthe industrial world. Right now, l'm thinking of my future and the future seems to be with machines. And the pay is very good!," stated Charise Johnson 1121. "lt gets boring because it's so long, but it's also very interesting, especially the bigger and harder projects," Scot Thorburn 1111 added. "lt's the best shop in the school with the best students and the finest staff. The potential for making a living is unlimited because the average age of machinists is over 50 years of age," commented Mr. Ed Thiringer, instructor foreman. A.

CAD System Carries Electronics Forward Benson's electronics department took another giant leap into the future this year with the purchase of state- of-the-art educational and design equipment. "The electronics shops are in the process of developing their own computer lab. We have a printer, a plotter and two Apple Ile computers. Video tape lessons are also being developed," said Mr. Tim Gutfleisch, sophomore electronics instructor. A plotter is a device used to "draw" a circuit pattern on a computer, in this case a Zenith model with two disk drives. The plotter and computer make up a CAD tcomputer-aided designl system. Video and computer technology work together in the interactive computer-controlled video lessons. Subjects such as multimeter calibration and Ohm's Law are taught through full-color video tutorials, which show the student step-by-step how to operate various types of electronic equipment. The Apple Ile computer then automatically gives the student a test on the material that has been discussed. If the student does not do well, the computer can be asked for further help. There will be a computer disk for each student that records individual progress and completion of each lesson. The computer and video tape recorder are linked by a controller box that malfunctioned at first, but is now operating properly. Another high-tech addition to electronics is the Rhino robot arm. This device simulates the range of motions a human arm follows. After much trial and error, students learned how to control the arm with an Apple Ile computer. Students created a wide range of devices this year. Some of them added their own ideas to the legendary Hofer amplifier and created unique projects. For example, senior Tracy McKinney designed a 14-band graphic equalizer. "The shop could have used a little more discipline, but then it wouldn't have been as much fun," he recalled. A.
