To be a productive machinist, there is more to learn than the theory of the CNC control. In this hands-on lab, you will work as a member of a team putting theory to work. Each team will be given a blueprint to work from to program, set up, and machine parts on a CNC lathe. Learn the job tasks, and if you're already employed in the industry, you can put them into practice each day as your knowledge grows.
Use a personal computer to create a part program. Transfer part programs from PC to CNC using floppy disk or RS232 port. Prove out a part program on the machine. Edit program and control part size using wear offsets.
