The Fixed-axis and Multi-axis Milling course is designed for NC/CNC programmers who machine simple or complex parts with fixed and variable tool capabilities. Students will learn how to create fixed and variable axis tool paths. You will also be introduced to NX workflows for machining contoured parts, high-speed machining methods, milling holes and threads, milling turbine blade type parts, and on machine probing.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
  • Manufacturing engineers
  • CAD/CAM managers
  • Multi-axis NC/CNC programmers
  • Users of 3, 4 and 5-axis machines for milling complex prismatic and contour type parts are encouraged to attend
