CNC Machining is designed to teach students how to efficiently use CNC milling machines, lathes, and electrical discharge machines by introducing them to the processes, tools, programs, and machines found in industry. A learning-friendly presentation consists of clear text and math content along with easy-to-follow drawings and photos. Examples of programming for 3-axis machining centers and 2-axis turning centers create a baseline knowledge that can be applied to other setups.
  • By focusing on the commonly used G- and M- codes, students develop the skills needed to use all CNC machines, not just those from a specific manufacturer.
  • Students can gain hands-on experience by editing and running the included programs.
  • Programs are written in long form to ensure that beginning students learn the proper language before they encounter shortened versions on the job or elsewhere.
