Specific course content includes:
- Introduction and general Layout of a 4-axis machining centre
- Overview of codes used in programming – i.e. G Codes, M Codes
- Understanding CNC programs – structure and content
- Explanation of 1st and 2nd Reference Point returns G28 and G30
- Programming with absolute and incremental values
- Calling up tools with geometry and radius offsets
- Rapid traverse and other feed-rate commands i.e. mm/rev and mm/min.
- Creating simple programs using simulation – and how to edit them
- Using Canned Cycles G73~G89 and Rigid Tapping function
- Introduction to NC Guide with Fixed Forms etc.
- Using NC Guide Cycles i.e. facing, pocketing, contouring, hole making and engraving etc.
- Polar Command and Co-ordinate rotation etc.
- Programming of an A-axis and using G7.1 Cylindrical Interpolation on a Vertical Machining Centre
- Programming of a B-Axis on a Horizontal Machining Centre
- Using Local Work Shifts G52 and G54~G58
- Writing extended programs to also include sub programs and sub routines
Safety footwear and other PPE is NOT required for this course.
