Audience

This training program has been created to advance experienced CNC machinists and operators in the use of NC programming and CAD/CAM technology to develop NC code for milling and turning centers. Our MasterCAM training program has been tailored using MasterCAM®, one of the most popular CAD/CAM software packages for creating toolpaths for turning and milling centers. The participants will develop skills in job planning, NC programming, CAD drawing, and preparing toolpaths from 2-D and 3-D CAD models for both mill and lathe applications.


Recommended Prerequisites

This is not an entry-level program for beginners. Participants must be able to demonstrate proficiency in blueprint reading, shop mathematics and computer skills using Microsoft Windows®. Participants must have at least 1 year of full-time experience in setup and operation of CNC machining centers.
