This course teaches a full range of the skills required to produce parts on a CNC turning center, including: verifying the workholding equipment is ready; setting the work shift and tool off sets; calculating feeds and speeds; writing the part program; turning the part; and optimizing the program to achieve the
shortest cycle time. During the four-day course, students will design several parts using engineering drawings and then setup and turn one on a FANUC-controlled lathe. Using a mix of 3D machine visualization and hands-on machine time, students will be exposed to most of the G-Codes used in standard turning – from G0 to G99. This course will help students who use CAM to create part programs to understand the program the post processor creates and how to fine tune it.
After the course students will know how to setup a turning center; understand G-Codes used for turning; know how to write and debug programs; turn 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. Machinists looking to make the transition from manual to CNC turning or those wanting to become more familiar with the setup and use of a CNC turning 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 turning process.
