Introduction to CNC Programming and Machine Operations
An introductory course to CNC Programming and Machine Operations.
This course is aimed at students interested in gaining knowledge of CNC machine setup and subsequent programming. This course would be ideal for someone interested in progressing from traditional manual machining techniques. This course would also be of interest to learners from industry wishing to broaden their CNC experience and skills.
During this course you will look at:
- CNC machine construction and setup
- CNC programme fundamentals e.g. datums and co-ordinate systems
- CNC contour programming using a CAM system
- CNC canned cycles
- Introduction to CAD part modelling for geometry creation
- CNC programming using Master Cam
- Hands on practical machining of CNC jobs/ examples
Sorry you cannot currently apply online for this course.
You may progress onto further study on a range of engineering courses at SERC.
This course would be suitable for up skilling employees who wish to work or may already work in a manufacturing environment using Computer Numerical Control.
If you have just completed your GCSEs Further Education is most likely the option for you. FE covers qualifications from entry to higher level qualifications such as Awards, Certificates, Diplomas, NVQ, BTEC and Apprenticeships.Explore Further Education
