Title

Teaching Computer Numerical Control of Manufacturing Processes

Abstract

A series of part programming problems assigned to the students are described. These assignments progressively expose the students to manual programming, computer assisted part programming using Bridgeport EASYCAM CNC part programming software packages for a Bridgeport CNC milling machine, and Okuma interactive part programming function (IGF) for an Okuma CNC lathe. Students machine the actual part from the created programs and submit a report along with the machined parts. With this the students develop a thorough understanding of manufacturing processes and programming of automated equipment.
