Learning Topics

  • History of Computer Numerical Controllers
  • Cartesian Coordinate Systems
  • Reference Points
  • Part Program Overview

The Principles of CNC eLearning course covers the fundamentals of the Computer Numerical Control (CNC) device and reviews the history, common components and functions, and common types and functions of CNC machines. Learners will study how a CNC machine uses the Cartesian coordinate system and reference points to control machine movement. Also provides an overview of part programming, including programming methods and program structure and codes.

What Does CNC Stand For? What Does a CNC Do?

CNC is an acronym for Computer Numerical Control. A CNC is a computer interface run by an operator. It reads instructions from a computer file about how to make a part, and then conveys that information to a machine. Programmers use computer software to create files that the CNC can understand. These files define and control the movement of each axis of travel on the machine. An axis of travel is a direction in which a machine component moves. CNC machines typically have two or more axes, depending on the type of machine and the product it makes.

What are the Advantages of a CNC?

The widespread adoption of CNC machines within manufacturing has resulted in an increase in product consistency and quality. There are numerous advantages the CNC provides industry:

  • Faster set-up time
  • Better quality control
  • Capability to contour complex shapes
  • Consistent cutting time
  • Increased productivity
  • Minimal strain on the operator
  • Reduced parts inventory
  • Improved accuracy and repeatability
  • Reduced tool and fixture shortage and cost
  • Simplified tooling and workholding
  • Enhanced manufacturing control
