Objectives of the course

The purpose of this course is to provide both new and experienced operators with hands-on training using current controls as programming stations. The class covers basic programming structure, program management, basic functions of the contouring keys, and the use of pre-programmed canned cycles, as well as probing and setting datums. At the completion of this course the operator will be able to set up and run a 5-axis machine.
