Machining Center Programming, Setup, and Operation


358 page manual, 90 page workbook, 6 hour CD-rom, and CD jacket (answer book not shown)

CNC machining centers are the most popular types of CNC machine tools used today. Most companies that have any CNC machines have at least one machining center. Unfortunately, companies are finding it more and more difficult to find and hire qualified CNC people. Many are realizing that they must provide extensive training to new hires and provide at least some continuing training to established employees.

But not all companies provide CNC training to their new hires, whether they should or not. And many individuals need to take training matters into their own hands, and do whatever it takes to learn about CNC. But until now, books were about the only training materials an individual could afford.

This courseware makes it possible for companies to train CNC people from scratch. And its priced in a way that individuals can afford. While we assume the student has some basic machining practice experience, we assume nothing about their previous CNC skills. Using our proven key concepts approach, we bring students up to speed gradually – constantly building upon previously presented information – and we stress the reasons why things are done as importantly as how they’re done. Six of the ten key concepts are most related to programming, and four are related to setup and operation.


We further divide the key concepts into twenty-four lessons. Lessons range from under five minutes to just over twenty minutes in length (total course presentation time is six hours, five minutes on one CD-rom).

All examples are shown in the format for the most popular control in the industry – the Fanuc control. Note that many control manufacturers claim to be Fanuc-compatible.

When the full course is purchased, this courseware includes everything your people need to learn CNC machining center programming setup, and operation - and it can be used over and over again to teach others in your company about CNC turning center usage.
