Objectives of the course

  • Apply the function for tilting the working plane for swivel heads
    or tilting tables
  • Work with rotary axes and spatial angles
  • Distinguish between the different NC program types of the TNC
  • Distinguish between the different TCPM functions (inclined and simultaneous machining) and use them
  • Use functions to influence the program execution behavior of the control or to adjust NC programs

Target group

Programmers and operators of CNC milling machines, CNC trainers, CAM users / programmers


  • Knowledge of CNC fundamentals
  • Completion of the basic course, or the equivalent knowledge of programming and operating the control
