SKCN 162 - Computer Numerical Control Theory

Credits: 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.
