ADMFG 121 : CNC Operations

This course is intended to provide students with the skills required to complete basic CNC machine set-ups and operations. Students will learn to use CNC set-up sheets, precision measuring tools, and working drawings and prints to verify parts. Students will also use G-Code to program CNC machines and become familiar with the use of canned cycles and parametric Macros to increase programming efficiency and speed. Basic fixture design will be discussed.
