Learning Outcomes

At the end of this course, students should be able to:

[1]     Explain the principle of CNC systems, mechanics and dynamics of machine tool.

[2]     Analyze CAD/CAM methodology in 2D, 3D, surface modeling and CAM operation.

[3]     Describe recognizable basic features of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) and CNC Programming.

[4]     Plan and analyze process planning for part machining. 



This course introduces to the principles of Computer Numerical Control (CNC), machine structures, planning for manufacture, part programming and CADCAM software operation. In this course the student is exposes to the CNC programming features of various CNC controls, the aplication of G and M codes, and mechanics and dynamics of machine tool.
