  • CNC Machining, 1st Edition
    Cover URL: CNC Machining
    Keyword(s): CNC; machining; metals; manufacturing; 2009; 1st Edition
    Abstract:

    CNC Machining is designed to teach students how to efficiently use CNC milling machines, lathes, and electrical discharge machines by introducing them to the processes, tools, programs, and machines found in industry. A learning-friendly presentation consists of clear text and math content along with easy-to-follow drawings and photos. Examples of programming for 3-axis machining centers and 2-axis turning centers create a baseline knowledge that can be applied to other setups.
