This course teaches a full range of skills necessary to produce parts on a CNC machining center: verifying the workholding equipment is ready, setting the work coordinate and tool off sets, calculating feeds and speeds, writing the part program, machining the part and then optimizing the program for the shortest cycle time. Over the course of four days students will learn to design a part using several processes from engineering drawings, set it up and machine it on a FANUC ROBODRILL.
Using a mix of 3D machine visualization and hands-on machine time students will study most G-Codes used in standard machining – from G0 to G99. For students who use CAM to create part programs, this course will help them understand the program the post processor creates and how to fine tune it. There is a one-day course extension focusing on ROBODRILL Guide Server features (ROBODRILL Addition).
At the conclusion of the course, students will know how to setup a machining center, understand G-Codes used for machining, know how to write and debug programs, machine a part they programmed and gain strategies for optimizing a program’s operation.
Successful completion of the FANUC Usage & Maintenance course.
Who Should Attend:
Programmers of any experience level who wish to develop a better understanding of G-Code programming. Anyone looking to make the transition from manual to CNC machining or those wanting to become more familiar with the setup and use of a CNC milling machine. Anyone looking to see how machine visualization software can speed up the part development cycle by verifying processes without tying up valuable machine time. Manufacturing and process engineers looking to gain a better understanding of the complete machining process.
