MATT 3005 - Intro CNC Machine Programming
As the most fundamental part of the CNC lathe and its operation, the coordinate grid is covered in detail in this module. Three levels of program preparation are discussed: EIA, APT, and Conversational. Since APT and Conversational languages are normally translated into EIA codes before execution on the machine, a more detailed look at the elements of the EIA coding system is then provided.
