About the class
Like all CNC people, you want your company to succeed. And
succeeding in the CNC environment often includes getting the most from your CNC
machines. At the very least, you need your CNC machines to perform at levels
that allow you to meet production schedules and/or make a profit. If they are,
your company never misses a delivery, workpieces are always available when they
are required at the next manufacturing step, and your company is always
achieving its expected profit.
But if your CNC machines are not
meeting production schedules, your company will fall
behind and will need to scramble to catch up. Worse,
your company is losing money and/or business because it
cannot keep up. This causes the inability to take on new
business (and make more money) since your machines
cannot keep up at current production levels.
If you feel that your company needs
improvement in this regard, Getting More From Your
CNC Machines will really help. We begin by asking
you to re-consider some of the most basic concepts
related to your CNC environment. We show you how to take
a close look at your company’s specific identity – since
the decisions you make must reflect who you are as a
We then show you how to determine an
appropriate level of machine utilization that will allow
you to meet your production schedules and/or make an
predictable profit. This acceptable machine utilization
level will be used to determine just what your CNC
people must do in order to make the machines they run
achieve your acceptable machine utilization level.
Assuming that your company needs
improving, we then provide suggestions for improving
machine utilization. All suggestions are intended to
improve setup time or cycle time – and to this end – we
include lessons for setup reduction principles and
techniques as well as cycle time reduction principles
and techniques. When you are finished with this on-line
class, you will be armed with countless ideas that will
help you get more from your CNC machine tools.
Like all of our on-line classes, this
class is on-going and self paced. You can register and
start at any time and work 24/7, and you’ll have 60 days
to complete the class. Each lesson includes lesson text
(a portion of the manual) that can be printed and saved.
It also includes a PowerPoint slide presentation which
can also be saved. These act as the presentation
materials for each lesson – and will make excellent
permanent references long after you complete class. When
you are finished studying each lesson, there is an
exercise to do – and exercises will be graded. A
certificate of completion is provided upon successful
completion (overall score must be at least 70%).
Here are the seven
lessons included in this on-line class:
1: Basic premises – concepts and
definitions to help you better understand your CNC
2: Who are you? – Every company
is unique and CNC-related decisions must be
appropriate to your company's needs
3: Machine utilization must
dictate personnel utilization – you must determine
the level of machine utilization that enables your
company to meet production schedules and/or to make
a profit, then determine how your people will keep
up with the machine/s at this level
4: Setup reduction principles –
these principles can be applied to just about any
kind of production machinery
5: Setup reduction techniques –
We provide suggestions for improving setup-related
tasks in the approximate order that setups are made
6: Cycle time reduction
principles – these principles can be applied to just
about any kind of production machinery
7: Cycle time reduction
techniques – We provide suggestions for improving
cycle time in the approximate order that production
runs are completed

On-Line Classes or CD-Rom Courses
What's the difference?
Much of the
same content is presented in both of these training media,
though the CD-rom
courses tend to be a little more comprehensive than the
on-line classes. Here are the most important differences:
The machining center and turning center
CD-rom course cover all three tasks a student must master
(programming, setup, and operation) in one course. With the
on-line classes, we cover programming in a separate course from
setup and operation.
CD-rom courses include a hard copy of
your manual. With our on-line classes, you print the manual
as you go through the course.
With CD-rom courses, you receive an
answer book and check your own answers. With our on-line classes
your instructor provides grades and comments for each exercise
courses can be used multiple times to train several people. With
the on-line classes each student must register separately.
