You will learn how to set and operate CNC machines. You will also learn how to produce basic CNC programs and then to edit/simulate & manufacture components on the CNC machines.
The course will include:
Introduction & General Layout of Machines, including safety features.
Operator, Keyboard & Soft-key Explanation (familiarity with CNC controls)
Axes Configuration. X, Y, Z.
Manual modes and use of MDI
Tooling; types of tools and tool holders, tool setting etc.
Setting tool length offsets and tool offset library
Datum setting (G54 – G59); methods and practically setting
Tool Library & Memory Configuration.
Produce basic CNC programs using ISO codes (G & M)
Introduction to fixed forms
Program editing and simulation
Producing components – use of single block, optional stop, federate override etc
(following safe working practices at all times)
Develop industry standard CNC Setting skills for both CNC Lathes & CNC Machining Centres, using new ‘industrial standard’ Doosan fanuc CNC machines.
No previous CNC experience required. A general engineering knowledge would be beneficial.
