A one-day session designed to acquaint your people with CNC!
Not everyone in your company needs to be a CNC programmer...
... setup person, or operator. Yet there are people outside your CNC
department that must have a good working knowledge of CNC in order to
communicate intelligently with your CNC people. Design engineers, quality
control people, manufacturing engineers, tooling engineers, managers, and
foremen should all understand the practical basics of CNC in order to
facilitate tasks for your CNC people.
In value added terms, these are your necessary support people. And
one of the most important concepts of value added principles is that a prime
responsibility of any necessary support person must be to enhance the
performance of your value added people: CNC operators. Design engineers,
for example, must understand how CNC operators adjust offsets in order to
tolerance dimensions in a way that minimizes the number of calculations an
operator must make. Though the design engineer will never actually run a CNC
machine, they must possess a working knowledge of CNC.
In this relatively short session, we will quickly acquaint people with the
usage of CNC machining centers and/or turning centers (depending upon what kind
of machines your company owns). We'll use our proven
key concepts approach, but we'll
simply introduce the reasoning behind each key concept - and won't get bogged
down in the details.
This will expose people who would not normally be involved in your CNC
environment with CNC. It will also improve communication among the various
departments in your company, giving people a feel for what it takes to program,
setup, and operate CNC machine tools. And of course, it will allow everyone to
get their questions about CNC answered. Students will come away from this
course with a new respect for your CNC people.
