Course Description

Avoid distractions of on-site training by traveling to STCC for an intensive 24 hour training. The training is held at STCC’s state of the art CNC manufacturing lab. The lab contains (8) Haas CNC mills (3-5 axis capable) and (8) Haas CNC lathes (2-4 axis capable).

Students learn to write programs for 2 axis CNC lathes through practical application. They start with a blueprint and complete the entire programming process from selecting a program origin to verifying the cut stock model matches the finished part in Vericut simulation software. They write programs to face, OD rough, OD finish, OD groove, OD thread, Drill, ID rough, ID finish, ID groove, Thread, and cutoff. Emphasis will be placed on what tolerances different types of toolpaths can achieve.

Training Highlights
  • Cartesian Coordinate System and program origin
  • Calculate speeds and feeds
  • Standard types of tools and toolholders
  • G and M codes and CNC program templates
  • Write CNC programs from scratch
  • Prove programs in Vericut
