Deadline Approaching for CNC Programming Classes

Last week we shared information about our upcoming MasterCam classes.  For more information about registering for those courses, please click here.  This week, we want to be sure that you know about the CNC classes that the Pittsburgh Chapter NTMA is offering with our training partner, New Century Careers.  Like the MasterCam classes, these CNC classes are also eligible for the COMPETE rebate.

The registration deadline is quickly approaching: Tuesday, January 8, 2012.   Read on for details and register today!

 

CNC Programming 1

Price:   $900                   COMPETE Rebate: $450

6 SATURDAYS, January 12, 2013- February 16, 2013

8:00 AM – 4:00 PM

 

Description:

This is the first part of a comprehensive course on the programming, setup, and operation of CNC machines using the EIA/ISO standard (G & M codes).  Basic concepts and principles of computer numerical control and CNC machines are covered along with the various addressing formats and machine codes.  Students will learn to develop process plans for simple parts and write part programs to machine these parts.  Students will download their programs to machine controllers, set up jobs on the machines, verify their programs, and run the machines to manufacture various parts.

 

Course Goals:

Upon completion of this course, a student will:

  • Understand the fundamentals of CNC programming
  • Be able to develop and verify CNC codes for simple parts
  • Understand and work with CNC controllers to set up tooling and parts and run CNC machines

 

CNC Programming 2

Price:   $900                   COMPETE Rebate: $450

6 SATURDAYS, January 12, 2013- February 16, 2013

8:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Pre-Requisites: CNC Programming 1

 

Description:

This is the second part of a comprehensive course on the programming, setup, and operation of CNC machines using the EIA/ISO standard (G & M codes).  Building on the basics taught in the first course (Manual Programming 1) in manual programming, this course will address tool compensation, canned cycles, and code generation for three-dimensional geometry among other advanced topics.  Students will download their programs to machine controllers, set up jobs on the machines, verify their programs, and run the machines.

 

Course Goals:

Upon completion of this course, a student will:

  • Be able to CNC program to run a variety of parts
  • Be able to develop and verify CNC codes using advanced features such as canned cycles, cutter compensation, and three-dimensional geometry
  • Understand and work with CNC controllers to set up tooling to run more advanced parts on CNC machines
