Fundamentals of CNC Machining
AudienceThe materials here were designed for working engineers and designers, engineering undergraduates or graduate students, and manufacturers. Educators can easily use these materials to support classroom learning, with the provided handbook, PowerPoint presentations, student exercises, and videos.
The goal of the Fundamentals of CNC Machining course materials is teach persons with a technical background how to program and operate Computer Numerical Control (CNC) mills and lathes. This course bridges the gap between what persons with a technical education know and what they must learn to begin using CNC machine tools. The types of parts, materials and machining operations that engineers, innovators, and niche manufacturers often use are featured. Work holding techniques well suited to prototype and short-run production are detailed and used as examples.
Here are some examples of what you’ll find in the Fundamentals of CNC Machining coursework, downloadable below.
The handbook includes the following lessons and appendices. It is downloadable as a PDF and is also available online here.
- Shop Safety
