We've always said that parametric programming is
one of CNC's best kept secrets. While more and more people are becoming
familiar with this powerful programming tool, there are still many in the
industry that don't even know what it is, let alone how to take advantage of
its many features. At the very least, all CNC people should know the
applications for parametric programming. Better yet, they should be able to
apply this powerful tool to reduce setup time and cycle time, facilitate CNC
machine utilization, make programming easier, and in general, make their CNC
machines easier to work with!
In this comprehensive course, you'll learn what parametric programming is,
it's five application categories, its features, and how to apply it. An ample
supply of examples is given for all application categories.
Introduction to parametric programming (30 min)

System variables (1 hr, 44 min)
Other CNC features of parametric programming (55 min)
Approaching and verifying parametric programs (22 min)
While we assume you have a good understanding of standard G-code-level
manual programming as you begin this course, we assume nothing about your
current knowledge about parametric programming. So
when it comes to parametric programming, we start from scratch. While an
elementary understanding of computer programming helps, we don't assume you
have computer programming experience.
This course covers three very popular versions of parametric programming.
Fanuc's custom macro B is by far the most popular version, and is the version
of parametric programming being used by any control manufacturer claiming to be
Fanuc-compatible (Yasnac, Haas, Mitsubishi, Mazatrol's eia, Seikos,
among others). But even if you don't have Fanuc controls, this course also
includes presentations for Okuma's user task 2 and Fadal's macro. Over 80% of
CNC machines used today are covered by this course! Due to the interactive
nature of computer based training, you can easily view just the presentations
you're interested in and skip those you're not.
All presentations are applications based. Each step of the way, we show
real-world applications that you can easily adapt to your specific needs. There
are plenty of examples and we stress the reasons why features are available as
well as how they can help you (compare this your control manufacturer's
descriptions in their programming manual).
All presentations have been developed using Microsoft PowerPoint for Windows
95/98, which is fast becoming the industry standard for computer generated
presentations. We use the freely distributed PowerPoint Viewer to display all
presentations. PowerPoint Viewer is included.
System requirements: You must have a multimedia computer with Windows 95 or
above and a minimum of 64 megs of internal memory to run the courseware.
CC-PP-A ~ Extra answer book for above ~ $19.95 ~ [ADD TO CART ]
Multiple course discount: We offer a substantial discount for each
additional (identical) course purchased. First course $399.00 (full price).
Each additional Parametric Programming course: $175.00. Each additional course
includes the CDs, an extra manual, and an extra workbook (no extra answer book
is included with multiple orders since but one person can check checking
answers). If you order five courses of the same title, for example, the total
price will be $1,099.00 and will include five CDs, five manuals, five
workbooks, and ONE answer book.
