This course covers fundamentals of computer numerical control, CNC. Basic programming and operation of CNC machines are covered. The course begins with manual programming practices so that the student will understand the programming code and its structure. Standard safety conventions will be introduced for safe programming practice. Computer simulation exercises will facilitate the learning process as the student gains practice in checking and trouble-shooting programs. The basic operation of CNC milling machines and lathes are covered. The lab uses software simulations where students test their program prior to use on the CNC machines, and actual CNC machine operation. The lab is geared so that students will understand what and how the program and machine will function. (Prerequisite: MNFP 101C.
