CNC: Absolute & Incremental Positioning

CNC: Absolute & Incremental Positioning is part three of the Computer Numerical Control 15-part training series.

The basis of CNC systems is the translation of a print to a numerical code, then to a series of machine operations, resulting in a finished workpiece. The instructions that the programmer writes for the machining process are derived from the coordinate measurement system.

Course objectives include:

  • Identify the X, Y, and Z dimensions of the Cartesian coordinate system
  • Describe absolute positioning and incremental positioning
  • Program rapid transit movements in both absolute and incremental systems.
