Course Description

Avoid distractions of on-site training by traveling to STCC for an intensive 3 day 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 set up 3 axis CNC mills through practical application. Every aspect of machine setup is covered from selecting the starting stock to performing a first article inspection on the completed part. Students will install tools, set up the fixture, then set work and tool offsets. They will verify their setup is correct before machining by running a graphic run and dry run. They will cut the first piece and inspect their own work, adjusting offsets as necessary to produce a part within blueprint specification. They will verify their work after the program is complete by ballooning the drawing and performing a full first article inspection
