Based on the authors' years of classroom and industry teaching experience, this practical text features a wealth of examples, exercises, and step-by-step processes to help students master Computer Numerical Control (CNC) operation and programming. The book covers machining fundamentals as well as CNC programming and operation of CNC machine tools-reflecting manufacturers' growing need to integrate computers into their production processes.
This third edition includes major changes in the programming chapters. The whole text is organized into three sections (G-Code Programming; Conversational Programming; and Quality) and has been updated throughout while maintaining its trademark logical and easy-to-understand approach.
Features New To The Third Edition
New chapter on abrasive waterjet and laser machining.
A new student CD that offers programming tutorials for the Okuma machining centers, Okuma turning centers, Milltronics mill, and Bridgeport EZ-Path lathe.
A second new student CD that offers a student version of Predator Editor and Predator Virtual CNC to help students write and simulate 3D computer programs.
Many additional questions and exercises that logically lead the student through step-by-step processes to learn to write CNC code.
