Workshops

Mazatrol Conversational CNC Programming Intro
Use state-of-the-art Mazak lathes with live tooling to learn the basics of Mazatrol programming in this two-day workshop, which combines classroom and lab learning. 

Mazatrol Conversational CNC Programming Intermediate
This workshop is a continuation of Mazatrol Conversational CNC Programming Intro that explores basic face and turn programs, types of point machining units and interpreting the point and line configuration necessary for the creation of milling tool paths.  By the end of this workshop, you should be ready to program your own part to take home. 

High Speed Machining Intro
This 18-hour workshop covers the basics of high-speed machining, including basic cutting tool and high-speed machining nomenclature.

High Speed Machining Intermediate
Choose your own set of parameters based on tool material and the material the work piece is made of and take on the challenge of interpreting how the tool is cutting through examination, sound and touch. 

G & M Code Programming
Learn to write and understand complex NC code programs through commands including machine rapid, feed moves, long-hand programming, cutter compensation, canned cycles and drilling. 

CNC Mill Programming
This CNC milling course introduces the fundamentals of CNC milling by introducing work with a variety of simulated machining applications. You’ll learn by working with industrial-based programming concepts to machine a series of basic parts. 

CNC Mill Programming Intermediate
This workshop is a continuation of CNC Mill Programming and focuses on the fundamentals of G & M code CNC mill programming.  You will design solutions for industrial CNC milling applications with emphasis on real industrial concerns.

CNC Lathe Programming
This CNC Turning Technology module introduces you to the fundamentals of CNC turning. This module challenges you to develop and write programs and machine assorted parts. 

CNC Lathe Programming Intermediate
This workshop is a continuation of CNC Lathe Programming. You’ll design solutions for industrial CNC turning applications with emphasis on real industrial concerns, such as optimized programming, accurate turning, shorter programming times and increased productivity.

Introduction to CAM
This 18-hour Computer Aided Machining module introduces the fundamentals of part geometry. Learn how to program parts on a CNC mill and a CNC lathe using FeatureCAM. At the end of class, you will be challenged to draw and design parts from actual blueprints using FeatureCAM.
