SKCN 162 - Computer Numerical Control TheoryCredits: 4
Instructional Contact Hours: 4
Uses various methods, such as a text editor, machine control unit, and CAD/CAM (MasterCam) to produce alpha-numeric code (G-Code) which will run CNC machinery. Uses blueprints to problem solve and program both point-to-point and complex contours on machining centers and turning centers. Discusses machines with 2, 3, 4, and 5 axis controls. Emphasizes common formats of programming. Discusses machine tool controllers including HAAS, Funac, and Okuma. Includes hands-on activities. Credit may be earned in either CNC 162 or SKCN 162 but not in both.
Prerequisite(s): SKTR 181W or MS 181W , or Instructor permission.
