This is the first in a two-course study of manual programming of CNC milling and turning centers. Students experience the entire process of part manufacturing by processing working drawings of sample parts, writing and editing of programs, set up and operation of CNC machine tools, and inspection of the finished products. Feeds and speeds, fixed cycles, program editing, set up procedures, and tape preparation are major topics presented. Laboratory time is required outside of class time.
