CNC Programming with AutoCAD (Certificate)

Course Format: On-Site / In-House / Private Tutoring
School/Trainer: CDM Institute - Pennsylvania

Computer-control programmers and operators use computer numerically controlled (CNC) machines to cut and shape precision products, such as automobile parts, machine parts, and compressors. CNC machines include metal-machining tools such as lathes, multi-axis spindles, and milling machines. A computer-controlled module now performs the functions formerly performed by human operators in machine shops. CNC machines cut away material from a solid block of metal, plastic, or glass, known as a work-piece, to form a finished part. Computer-control programmers and operators normally produce large quantities of one part, although they may produce small batches or one-of-a-kind items. They use their knowledge of the working properties of metals and their skill with CNC programming to design and carry out the operations needed to make machined products that meet precise specifications.

Description: This course is designed to teach an experienced machinist how to program a CNC controlled Mill or Lathe and how to use basic AutoCAD functions to draw simple mechanical parts and assist in the g-code programming process. In order to simulate the CNC machine special computer softwa... [Read More]

CNC Programming

CNC Programming

Course Format: On-Site / In-House / Private Tutoring
School/Trainer: Conestoga College Corporate Training

Knowledge of general machine shop practices, including clamping, cutting tools, speeds and feeds, blueprint reading and Grade 11 Math. This course is designed for not only technical people with machining background but as well as those interested in pursuing a career in Numerical Control. An excellent course for non-technical people, quality control and engineers to gain a better understanding of what is involved in CNC, its potential and appreciate the complexities of programming. The course will cover the basic principles of toolpath development requirements of CNC, absolute and incremental programming styles using the coordinate system. It will cover a basic programming format for turning and machining centres. The students will utilize a simulator software to write a basic lathe and mill program taught in a computer lab with CNC simulation software.

CNC Preparation
