Lakes Region Community College CNC Machine I (LMAN1500)

Students will be introduced to the fundamentals of Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) Milling machines and their programming. First covered in this course is the basic operation of CNC machines with the topics such as safety , simulation , tooling with tool selection , and machine zeroing. Hands on training via simulations will expose the student to absolute and incremental positioning, circular interpolation ,program interpolation, and cycle pausing. CNC Machine safety will be stressed throughout this course. This folder includes text files for the following items: •Syllabus •Lecture Notes/PPTs
