Basics of CNC Programming & Machining
Today’s manufacturing utilizes innovative technologies, including sophisticated computer numerical control (CNC), computer aided manufacturing software (CAM) and specialty industry materials to develop and build the products of tomorrow.
Students will be walked through all aspects of CNC machining; how to import a CAD model into CAM software; how to get it ready for machining; and how to apply machining techniques to machine that part.
At the end, students will have learned how to machine a part on a CNC milling machining centre. This last step is critical to putting together pieces of the puzzle, so that one can understand the whole process. Students will be applying machining techniques in the virtual world and then seeing how a virtual object comes in to reality on a CNC machine
