Introduction to Computer Numerical Control

Provided by: edX

Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Machining is the process through which computers control machine-based processes in manufacturing. The kinds of machines controlled include lathes, mills, routers and grinders – all used for manufacturing of metal and plastic products. In this course, you’ll learn the ins-and-outs of CNC machining; building the essential knowledge to develop and operate a project with a CNC machine. From plan interpretation to machining and quality control, you will learn how to make the right decision in every stage of a project through videos and interactive activities.

Course Objectives:

  • How to identify the right machine tool for the production process
  • Selection of cutting tools according to the ISO standard
  • How to develop a basic CNC code
  • Implementation of necessary pre-production adjustments.

Recommended Background

  • Recommended for manufacturing personnel, including technicians, engineers, and managers.
