IMTMA Training Centre

Programming & Operation of CNC Machining Centres

Date : 25 to 29 March, 2019

@ 12/5, D1 Block, MIDC Chinchwad, Pune


CNC machines have become the order of the day in every manufacturing industry. These applications are wide spread in mass production units, batch production as well as in tool room industries. Thorough understanding of Programming and Operation of the CNC machines is a must in order to realize the maximum output.

Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing a 5 day programme on Programming and Operation of CNC Machining Centres on 25 - 29 March 2019 at Pune.

This programme will address the programming and operation of CNC Machining centres in detail including finer aspects like control of dimensions, surface finish and optimization of machining parameters. The procedure for safe running of the machine would be dealt along with autonomous maintenance practices. The participants will be trained hands-on in production CNC machines with real time machining exercises.

(*It is a non-residential programme).

Focus Areas

  • Elements of CNC Machining Centre and different modes in the machine.
  • G codes and M codes applicable to CNC Machining Centre.
  • Structure of a CNC Programme for CNC Machining Centre.
  • Work and tool set up; Measuring tool offsets in X,Y and Z axes.
  • Programming using canned cycles
  • ISO system of tool designation.
  • Dimensional control in CNC Machining Centre, Correction of wear offset for achieving tolerances.
  • Selection of tools and machining parameters.
  • CAM programming – Usage and advantages.
  • Autonomous maintenance principles – Procedure and Check points.

Hands-on training in the machine for :

  • Understanding modes and screen navigation.
  • Work and tools set up in the machine.
  • Measuring work and tool offsets.
  • MDI commands and JOG movements.
  • Programme entry and simulation.
  • Machining exercises involving different cycles.
  • Measuring dimensions on the machine and control.
  • Autonomous maintenance check points.
