420-325Basic CNC Mill Programming5420-322 or 420-324; Corequisite: 420-330This course is designed to prepare the student for entry-level skills in programming, setup, and operation of CNC milling machines. Repetitive operational tasks will be performed as students acquire knowledge and skill in setting-up and operating CNC milling machines. Students will develop and apply skills in setting and testing work and tool offsets, performing manual data input functions, loading programs, and the running of proven CNC programs. Programming examples will be covered using canned cycles, linear and circular interpolation, cutter compensation, subroutines, and multiple fixture offsets, etc. Projects will be assigned and completed using Haas Mini and VF series vertical mills.
