2000, 7 X 10 illustrated hardcover
The authors have designed this book to take the mystery out of CNC - to put it in a logical sequence and express it in simple language that everyone can understand. This reference covers everything from programming basics to bench-top teaching machines to industrial machines to milling and turning programming to an introduction to CAD/CAM.
Fanuc compatible programming, the accepted world standard, is used in programming examples, and codes are explained as they are used.
A CAD/CAM software program, included in the book, makes it possible to design a part on the computer, generate machining codes, and simulate the tool path to check for programming errors.
An overview of Virtual Reality NC is included, so students are aware of a new technology that is revolutionizing the design and manufacture of products.
