This textbook is designed to take the mystery out of CNC by putting it into a logical sequence and expressing it in simple language that everyone can understand. Written by the authors of CNC Programming Basics: (A Primer for the Skills USA /VICA Championships). CNC Simplified covers everything from programming basics to bench-top teaching machines to industrial machines to milling and turning programming to an introduction to CAD/CAM. What's more, a CAD/CAM SOFTWARE PROGRAM, included in each book, makes it possible to design a part on the computer, generate machining codes, and simulate the tool path (cutting action) to check for programming errors. 448 pp.
