Sample copies of the CNC Machines 1 and CNC Machines 2 Student Reference Guides are also included with each system for your evaluation. Sourced from the curriculum, these Student Reference Guides take the entire series’ technical content contained in the learning objectives and combines them into perfectly-bound books. Student Reference Guides supplement this course by providing a condensed, inexpensive reference tool that learners will find invaluable once they finish their training, making them the perfect course takeaway.
Amatrol’s CNC Machines 1 and 2 Learning Systems (96-CNC1D and 96-CNC2D) cover how to operate a CNC milling machine and how to develop basic programs that will run the machine. More specifically, the 96-CNC1D will cover fundamental CNC machine training, such as linear interpolation, startup and shutdown blocks, tooling selection, and accurate PRZ location before moving on to more advanced circular interpolation commands. The 96-CNC2D builds on these foundational skills by adding how to calculate the speeds and feeds for CNC operations, how canned cycles and subprograms are used to simplify CNC programs, and how to use cutter compensation.
Each of these learning systems uses the Denford Micromill IST CNC milling machine, which allows learners to gain hands-on milling program design and practice. This level of hands-on CNC machine training is mirrored throughout other systems in Amatrol’s Project Based Learning program. Project Based Learning systems were specifically designed for high school students in order to teach them teamwork, STEM, and problem-solving skills that are applicable to real-world advanced manufacturing career opportunities.
