The GTI course, Introduction to CNC Machining is designed introduce students to the CNC machining process. The course covers safety, machine maintenance, the process of Industrial production, part design, machine code generation and part production. The course is two days from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM. All students will receive a course manual containing all course content and will machine several parts with a CNC router.
Students will learn safety and machine maintenance procedures for CNC machine tools.
Students will learn the industrial process used to design and produce parts with a CNC machine tool.
Students will design parts in Mastercam, verify those parts for safe production and generate the machine code necessary to cut those parts.
Students will learn to secure stock, setup the machine, and cut parts on a CNC router
Students will cut several parts from wood with a CNC router.
Students will use the GTI developed manual “An Introduction to CNC Machining” for completion of the course objectives.
Students will be evaluated for success by demonstrating the ability to design a part in Mastercam, generating the machine code to cut that part, simulate the machining for safe production and production of the part on the CNC router.
