MECH 120 - Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Programming I (Mill)

3 credits (2 lecture, 2 lab)
This course will provide the knowledge and skills necessary for developing two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) Computer Numerical Control (CNC) milling programs. Emphasis will be on the use of computer aided manufacturing (CAM) milling software to generate tool paths from part geometry. CNC Code structure and modification will also be addressed for developing well organized and effective programs. This course will benefit the working machinists, tool and die makers, students entering the manufacturing field, and entry-level CNC programmers.  Spring semester only.

Credit for this course can be granted through verification of the following National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) certifications: Measurement, Materials, & Safety (MMS), CNC Milling-Setup/Programming Level I, and CNC Milling Level II credentials.

Butler County Community College does not offer NIMS Certification.

Prerequisite(s): MECH 114 or permission of instructor.
