Introduction to Computer Numerical Control (CNC)
For one/two-semester, undergraduate-level courses in CNC, or for the manual component of a CNC programming course.Using a practical, step-by-step approach, easy-to-follow language, an abundance of graphics, and machining simulation software, this text/CD-ROM package gradually develops the most fundamental concepts in CNC (Computer Numerical Control) technology-with a focus on word address (G and M code) programming for the industry standard Fanuc controllers.
