Computer Numerical Control 15-Part Series

This 15-part training series will help students master the fundamentals of computer numerical control for milling operations. The series covers program preparation, multi-axis milling, circular milling, drilling, subroutines, loops, special cycles, translation, polar coordinates, rotation, scaling, and cutter radius compensation.

The Computer Numerical Control series is designed for mill and drill operators who have knowledge and experience with machining skills. It does not assume any previous knowledge of CNC programming. All the terms used in the courses are defined and explained, so students are not required to have a machining vocabulary to understand the content.

eLearning courses included:

CNC: Introduction to Computer Numerical ControlTeaches students the terms and conditions of the Computer Numerical Control system.

CNC: Preparing For ProgrammingDetails the planning steps required to write a program.

CNC: Absolute & Incremental PositioningTeaches absolute and incremental positioning and how to program rapid transit movements in both systems.

CNC: One-– & Two–-Axis Linear MillingIntroduces programming techniques which will allow milling in up to two axis simultaneously.

CNC: Three-–Axis Linear Milling & Circular MillingIntroduces the program codes that make three-axis linear milling and circular milling possible.

CNC: Completed Milling ProgramsDemonstrates how a completed milling program should be written.

CNC: Drilling, Boring & Spot FacingTeaches how to write drill, spot facing, deep hole, chip breaking deep hole, boring, and dwell cycle statements.

CNC: SubroutinesDemonstrates how to define and execute subroutines and write nested subroutines.

CNC: LoopingIntroduces students to loop statements and demonstrates their use.

CNC: Special CyclesTeaches students how special cycles allow programmers to save time and computer memory.

CNC: TranslationTeaches students how to shift programmed tool movements to a new coordinate that is parallel to the original coordinate.

CNC: Polar Coordinate ProgrammingIntroduces the polar coordinate system and demonstrates how it can be used to describe locations in relation to the center of a circle.

CNC: ScalingIntroduces a programming method to increase or decrease the scale of an existing program by adding a scaling statement.

CNC: Multi–Quadrant Interpolation & RotationTeaches students how to program and terminate multi-quadrant interpolation, how to rotate an existing program, and how to terminate a rotation.

CNC: Cutter Radius CompensationTeaches students to use programs which were written for a specific cutter then automatically compensate for new radii of different cutters.
