An introduction to the basic concepts of CAD/CAM for 2½D CNC milling processes. Explore and understand the progression from design to manufacture. This is a practical-based course with hands-on activities on CNC machines and offline computers.
This course provides candidates with an understanding of the principles employed in 2½D CNC milling techniques using CAD/CAM software. Candidates will gain an understanding of the safety aspects of automated CNC CAM milling processes used in the manufacturing industry.
They will also gain an understanding of off-line programming and post-processing G-Codes via DNC to CNC machine tools.
Who should attend?
The course is aimed at candidates who have a basic understanding of CNC milling operations, a basic understanding of CAD packages, and have knowledge of G-coding and programming using Canned Cycles. Candidates should have the desire to up-skill and expand their present abilities to meet future demands.
We recommend that candidates have attended the AMRC Training Centre Introduction to CNC Milling course before progressing to this intermediate course.
