Course Preamble

The versatile application of CNC machined products has brought a massive change in mass production of components with repeatability and minimizing the rejection rates to a minimum level. As the technology emerges, high demand for skilled personnel versed with advanced CNC technologies has transpired. Advanced CNC Machining Course deals with Advanced Computer operated Machines like Vertical Machining Center and Turning Center. The objective of the course is to create a skilled professional as an Advanced CNC technician. As a senior technician, he can decide the manufacturing Process, sequence of operations, the number of set up, tooling selection, and programming. Also, he can confirm and perform the feasibility study for new product development & support in calculating machining costs. Apart from the mentioned, he will be trained in designing the machine tools, analyzing the design, programming, maintaining, and testing CNC & VMC machines to increase productivity. Understanding of parameters for machines and their effect on manufacturing cycle time and providing support to each machinist working under his guidance. He can also coordinate and manage manufacturing processes in the plant. Develop budgets for machine shops and estimate up-gradation costs for various processes. Being a knowledgeable person, he will be a vital member of all the decisions related to the industry's objective of manufacturing, costs, productivity, etc.

Course Objective

This course aims to create qualified engineers who can create, operate, program, and maintain CNC machines for various applications. The course is structured to make the trainees competent enough for adapting to the ongoing changes in the field of the manufacturing industry by providing comprehensive training and knowledge in the field of CNC technology.
