This combination course starts with a 2-day intro to CNC Lathe and is followed immediately by the 3-day CNC Turning: Programming, Setup and Operations Level 1 class for a comprehensive 5-day training program on the Haas CNC Lathe.
Description: This course is designed for those with little or no CNC lathe G-code programming, setup and operations experience, and is provided to help prepare trainees for successful completion of the CNC Turning: Programming, setup and operations Level 1 class. The hands-on portion involves five 8-hour days directly on Haas CNC turning centers. The hands-on training includes safety, machine pre-checks, coolant management, startup, tooling and work holding, setting work and tool offsets, basic G-code programming, inputting and editing programs, adjusting wear offsets, machining a part and inspecting the results with precision measuring tools.
Project: The introduction to CNC turning work piece is a simple part made of aluminum; carbide inserted turning tools are used; parts dimensioned in inch; machines are run in the inch system; tool nose compensation and type 1 turning cycles are used.
