This course is only available using the on-line
delivery option (there is no off-line delivery option).
It relates the fundamentals of FANUC
CNCs. It is appropriate to all experience levels, from
entry-level to experienced CNC people. It is relevant to
anyone working with CNC, including operators,
programmers, maintainers, engineers, and managers.
It should be considered as prerequisite to more
advanced service and maintenance classes.
Content and lessons
This class is divided into seven lessons:
- Introduction: machine
configurations, control designations, documentation,
history, manufacturing process, and CNC functions
- CNC Screen Review: terminology,
function keys, soft keys, operator's panels, state
display, various display screens
- Memory Operations: parameter
write enable, memory backup, memory restore
- System Hardware: CNC hardware,
servo hardware, spindle hardware, hardware alarms
- PMC Ladder Logic: address

setting display, PMC status display, PMC alarm
display, PMC parameter display, setting display,
machine alarm troubleshooting, M codes
- CNC Troubleshooting: general
troubleshooting, CNC alarm categories, CNC alarm
troubleshooting, CNC system alarms, Operation
failures, warning messages
- G-code Programming: basic G
codes, part program format, mill canned cycles,
lathe canned cycles, common program alarms
Each student will receive a FANUC Certified
certificate-of-completion credential after they successfully
complete this class.
NCGuide is required
This class provides lots of practice. Students will
need to modify CNC settings, work with PMC ladder logic,
enter and run programs, and in general, gain experience
running a FANUC CNC. NCGuide is FANUC CNC software
running on a PC, meaning students will have a virtual
FANUC CNC for practicing during the class.
A special NCGuide machine composition file is
provided for this class.
NOTE: NCGuide comes on a CD rom disc
and must be physically delivered. While we can usually
register students into on-line classes within a day of
receiving an order, it will take a few business days to
Estimated time to completion
We estimate that students will average approximately
40 hours to complete this class, including time to study
the materials, to do the NCGuide exercises, and to take
the tests. Actual time will vary, of course, based upon
the student's aptitude.
Our on-line system provides a robust eLearning
environment. Included are narrated presentations,
reading materials, tests, and NCGuide exercises. The
reading materials (a .pdf file) can be saved and
retained for future reference.
