MATT 3005 - Intro to CNC Machine Program, 5 Credits

Level: Lower

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.
