CNC Programming & Operations

Without question the best bang for the buck when it comes to training you or your employees is to register them for one of our two state-approved manufacturing programs.

This program is approved by the State Board of Career Colleges and Schools. All students are evaluated 4 times on paper. This includes a mid-term and final. Shop evaluations include a check-off list of 40 competencies, the successful performance of a complete mill and lathe setup in 90 minutes each, and the manufacturing of a minimum of two parts as described below.

The 300-hour, 17-week CNC Programming and Operations program is very comprehensive. Your employee will learn to:

  1. Read and interpret blueprints, perform basic shop math, create a CAD rendition of a part of moderate complexity, properly dimension the part.
  2. Create a process sheet or order of operation to make the part.
  3. Write and edit a CNC program from a print of moderate complexity and process sheet data using a combination of CAD based download and “at machine” edits. (Fanuc format)
  4. Identify and install tooling for the job. Qualify same.
  5. Perform all offsets, touchoffs, indicate vise, edge find. Enter appropriate data prior to dry run.
  6. Utilize all basic inspection equipment including comparator.
  7. Dry run.
  8. Make the part. (Students are required to produce one milling and one turning part at minimum and document the job properly, including in-process inspection.)

Price is all-inclusive and discounts are available for 3 or more participants from the same company.
