Machining Level 1: CNC Milling Programming, Setup & Operations
is approx. 16 hours per week for six weeks. Enrollment is on-going and students may start at any time once they have completed Measurement, Materials, and Safety; Job Planning, Benchwork, and Layout; and CNC Milling Operations.
The CNC Milling Programming, Setup & Operations course teaches the programming, setup, and operations of Computer Numeric Control (CNC) Milling Machines.
Skills learned about Good Machining Practices of Milling from the prerequisite courses will apply to operation of CNC Milling Machines.
Axis orientation and blueprint understanding are reinforced.
Machine coding is learned through multiple exercises with writing typical machine code taught in order for student to understand programs that are being setup and operated. Students learn typical G-code use and Conversational Machine Commands.
The student learns by using accepted practices to set
- work coordinates
- tool length compensation
- radius compensation
- tool wear offsets
The final project is to write a program, set up and make a project part that complies with the engineering drawing without direct assistance, and then culminate the requirements of NIMS credentialing by passing a knowledge test. Machining Level 1: CNC Milling Programming Setup & Operations
credential is earned.
The schedule is Monday - Friday in the machinist shop behind the Carver Center from 8:30am through 5:00pm.
