Back cover copy

This book was developed to introduce students and machining professionals to the basic operations and methods of computer numerical control (CNC) technology. It provides a solid foundation for future advanced design and programming study. Intended for readers with diverse backgrounds, concepts are presented using an applied, hands-on, step-by-step methodology, which is easy to understand and follow. Using generic examples not tied to a particular brand, coverage includes CNC set-up, operation, tooling, program structure, and machining processes. In addition, reviews of mathematics, blueprint reading, and metrology are included as needed. Some of the key features include: Safety issues are emphasized throughout the text. Useful and effective illustrations visually support the explanations and program samples. Readers are shown how to understand the format and concepts of CNC programs. G-Codes, M-Codes, and the various other letter address codes are all discussed, in addition to operational codes, such as tool changing, offsets, spindles speed, coolant, and program stops. CNC machine types, toolholders, cutting tools, and workholding devices are fully more
