CNC Turning Center Setup and Operation Course is a advanced method of learning CNC programming techniques starting with CNC basics and taking reader to advanced features, combined with real experience in setting procedures and machining operations.It is fully indexed (via Table of Contents) to help the user quickly locate topics of interest, this “industrial strength” CD Course presents most common CNC Lathe programming subjects in great depth and is equally applicable to all major CNC Controls and CNC turning operations. That knowledge can be easily applied on CNC controls like Siemens, Okuma, Haas, Mazak,Heidenhain, Fadal…If you're a beginner 'newbie' or an advanced CNC Programmer who wants to fine-tune, sharpen or just simply skyrocket your skills through the ceiling...This CNC Course takes a complete Newbie who knows nothing about CNC programming and skyrockets his skills into a professional competent programmer. When you study this course and understand it completely, you will have the best chance for a good job.


This course covers the concepts of programming the Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Turning Centre - Lathe. Filled with dozens of illustrations, tables, formulas, tips, shortcuts, and practical examples, this widely respected CNC programmer has structured the eBook in a logical order that is readily adaptable to virtually all levels of CNC training, from the basic to the advanced.


1. Basic design of the CNC lathe and the CNC control
Safety functions and devices
2. Coordinate system, axis on the CNC lathe
3. 0-point and reference point
4. Basic operation of the CNC lathe
5. Turn on the machine and the CNC control
6. Establish the tool offset and program 0-point
7. Understanding Feeds and speeds calculation
8. G-code system, basic function, M-functions
9. CNC Programming, Contour programming, champher and radius
10. Program examples with setting instructions
11. Operations
