CAD/CAM/CNC

 
This module informs the trainees of everything they need to know about work in the metal sector; they will learn about CNC programming and cutting. They are provided with WinNC a CNC turning and milling simulator, offering 2D and 3D representations, and will learn about NC programming in MTS programming key. They are then introduced to TOPTURN, TOPMILL and TOPCAM, and will learn about operating MTS CAM milling projects. This module also discusses the issue of quality control.
