Course information

This is a practical course aimed at Mills CNC customers who have Fanuc-controlled Doosan machining centres or similar Fanuc-controlled machining centres manufactured by other machine tool builders.

The course will appeal to Companies who have an in-house Machine Tool Maintenance or Service Department and need to increase the skill levels of their employees, thus enabling them to plan and undertake systematic trouble-shooting and preventative mechanical maintenance on Fanuc-controlled machining centres.

To get the most from this course it is important that attendees have experience of machine tools’ mechanical operation and CNC controls systems and functions.

Specific course content includes:

  • Explanation of the Fanuc Control system
  • Introduction to the machining centre and its layout and configuration
  • Understanding the tool change system and sequence; and undertaking fault-finding exercises
  • Ball-screw accuracy, checking backlash and rectifying issues
  • Undertaking axis realignment
  • Checking pallet-changer systems and their operation
  • Understanding spindle assembly including coolant-through-spindle operation and mechanisms
  • Hydraulic and pneumatic mechanisms, operation, fault-finding and preventive maintenance
  • Fault-finding

This course is run at the Mills Mills CNC Training Academy’s facility in Leamington or can be held at a customer’s facility.

This course is practical with a significant proportion of time spent training on a Fanuc-controlled machining centre. As a consequence, if training is required at a customer’s facility, it is important that attendees have unrestricted access to a Fanuc-controlled machining centre.
