By means of project-based learning, students gain experience with the entire design and production process. Starting with developing and editing programs, students complete projects to learn proper machine set up, cutting tool selection, tool path simulation and turning center operation. Students design solutions for industrial CNC applications emphasizing optimized programming, precision and productivity.
This CNC course allows students to explore topics through engaging animations and CNC machine simulations and integrated CNC control software which launches directly from the content viewer. The CNC control features an intuitive software interface and conforms to industrial EIA, ISO, Fanuc and G&M code standards.
