Course Overview

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
