About the class

Like all CNC people, you want your company to succeed. And succeeding in the CNC environment often includes getting the most from your CNC machines. At the very least, you need your CNC machines to perform at levels that allow you to meet production schedules and/or make a profit. If they are, your company never misses a delivery, workpieces are always available when they are required at the next manufacturing step, and your company is always achieving its expected profit.

But if your CNC machines are not meeting production schedules, your company will fall behind and will need to scramble to catch up. Worse, your company is losing money and/or business because it cannot keep up. This causes the inability to take on new business (and make more money) since your machines cannot keep up at current production levels.

If you feel that your company needs improvement in this regard, Getting More From Your CNC Machines will really help. We begin by asking you to re-consider some of the most basic concepts related to your CNC environment. We show you how to take a close look at your company’s specific identity – since the decisions you make must reflect who you are as a business.

We then show you how to determine an appropriate level of machine utilization that will allow you to meet your production schedules and/or make an predictable profit. This acceptable machine utilization level will be used to determine just what your CNC people must do in order to make the machines they run achieve your acceptable machine utilization level.

Assuming that your company needs improving, we then provide suggestions for improving machine utilization. All suggestions are intended to improve setup time or cycle time – and to this end – we include lessons for setup reduction principles and techniques as well as cycle time reduction principles and techniques. When you are finished with this on-line class, you will be armed with countless ideas that will help you get more from your CNC machine tools.

Like all of our on-line classes, this class is on-going and self paced. You can register and start at any time and work 24/7, and you’ll have 60 days to complete the class. Each lesson includes lesson text (a portion of the manual) that can be printed and saved. It also includes a PowerPoint slide presentation which can also be saved. These act as the presentation materials for each lesson – and will make excellent permanent references long after you complete class. When you are finished studying each lesson, there is an exercise to do – and exercises will be graded. A certificate of completion is provided upon successful completion (overall score must be at least 70%).

Here are the seven lessons included in this on-line class:

  • 1: Basic premises – concepts and definitions to help you better understand your CNC environment

  • 2: Who are you? – Every company is unique and CNC-related decisions must be appropriate to your company's needs

  • 3: Machine utilization must dictate personnel utilization – you must determine the level of machine utilization that enables your company to meet production schedules and/or to make a profit, then determine how your people will keep up with the machine/s at this level

  • 4: Setup reduction principles – these principles can be applied to just about any kind of production machinery

  • 5: Setup reduction techniques – We provide suggestions for improving setup-related tasks in the approximate order that setups are made

  • 6: Cycle time reduction principles – these principles can be applied to just about any kind of production machinery

  • 7: Cycle time reduction techniques – We provide suggestions for improving cycle time in the approximate order that production runs are completed
