CNC Machine Training Classes

CNC Machine Training Classes now running at the CNC Training Centre
Setter Operator Beginners Turning
Setter Operator Beginners Milling
These two courses are designed for beginners who want to learn how to set and operate a CNC machine and are for students with very little engineering experience.
Learn to Programme
Learn To Programme Turning
Learn To Programme Milling
If you already work on a CNC Machine but you want to learn to programme then the two courses above are for you.
I have added these courses which are for students with very little engineering experience. They cover the basics of milling and turning in preparation for learning to programme.
They are two day courses but pack a lot in, covering tooling and measuring instruments. I am drawing from my vast experience in industry, on the coal face as it were, and knowing the very basics skills that are needed by a CNC operator before he begins to learn about programming.
The New CNC Training Classes and Courses focus very much on the basics giving a solid understanding of the nuts and bolts of CNC programming on an ISO Fanuc Haas type control.
I am going to ramble on, because I always do, but it made me think of when I worked with my dad many years ago. My dad was a brilliant old school engineer and he worked for Alfred Herberts from boy to man, apart from a brief period in the RAF.
He got made redundant and had his pension robbed when AH finally went bust. I was running an engineering company so it seemed obvious to have him working for me.
I learnt so much from my dad about the basic principles of machining (this is the link to the training courses) albeit tenuous. His claim to fame was that he worked the first Cri Dan machine. This was an amazing innovative machine that could hold it’s own, until fairly recently, against a CNC lathe for high-speed threading. There are still a few about now.
My dad often joked that he could offhand grind a 1/16 of an inch drill and read a steel rule to a thousandth of an inch which I am sure was bullshit although I would never dare to say. I remember we were trying to turn and bore some motor bodies on a Mori Seiki lathe and we could not get them round. Anyway he told me to weld up some jaws so that they would fully envelop the part.
Basically it had nowhere to go it was like a big collet and it worked. But there was another lesson to learn. Our inexperienced inspector was trying to measure roundness with a micrometer which I am sure you all know cannot be done.
An argument ensued and profanities were exchanged. We ended up buying a Talyrond roundness checker which is the correct tool for the job.
As it happens the same thing cropped up in a customer’s only a few months back. I caught them trying to measure roundness with a micrometer. Back to basics again.
These days I have a much better way to prove my point than shouting and swearing and it’s cheap 50 pence to be precise.
I threw them a 50p piece (UK Currency) or even a 20p for the real cheapskates. “Is that round” was my question. They laughed
“Here is a micrometer now check it for roundness”.
Mmm it’s dead round when you check it with a micrometer.
The smart arses amongst you will know that a 50p piece is an “equilateral curve heptagon“. And it measures the same across any two points you care to choose. It proves that you can’t measure roundness with a micrometer.
I won’t be teaching you about roundness on these courses ,that would be silly you already know, but if you are interested in learning basic CNC Programming for a Lathe or Milling Machine look no further.
