ATAP 2320 - CNC Lathe G & M Programming & CNC Machining

Credit Hours: 2.00


Prerequisites: None

This course teaches the general concepts of CNC Lathe Programming and Machining. Through lecture and lab assignments, the student will learn offline programming, shop floor programming, and the principles of 2 axis CNC turning. Turning, facing, drilling, reaming, tapping, and threading will be emphasized, accompanied by demonstrations, student programming, and hands-on setup and machine operation.

Location: South Campus

Contact Hours: 2
Billable Contact Hours: 2
