Who is the course for?
An introduction to CNC principles and machine structures, planning for manufacture, part programming and basic CNC operation and manufacture. Working from technical engineering drawings, learners will develop G and M code programs, prove their validity and produce components.
What does the course involve?
- Operation planning for manufacture
- Manual part program creation using G and M codes
- CNC Milling and Turning programming methods
- Interpretation of engineering drawings
- Program simulation and editing
- Advanced CNC programming techniques
What makes this course special?
The CNC course is designed to meet the needs of local companies and individuals, and provides an introduction to CNC principles and machine structures, planning for manufacture, manual part programming and editing. Learners will develop G and M code programs, prove their validity via simulation and manufacture components. The course will involve a mixture of practical and theory (practical will involve downloading the program to the CNC machine tool and one off production of components).
Applicants suitability for the course will be assessed informally upon application.
