September 17, 2018– Stone Ridge, NY – SUNY Ulster’s Office of Continuing and Professional Education is offering computer numerical control (CNC) training beginning October 1 and 2. CNC is the automation of machine tools by computers executing pre-programmed sequences of machine control commands. This course is designed to prepare workers for the advanced manufacturing workplace, where they will use their CNC training to modify materials to precise specifications using a CNC router.

This course covers the fundamentals of machining metals, starting with manual mill and lathe and advancing towards a three-axis mill and lathe. Using CNC Programming and an online CNC Learning System, students will be introduced to the fundamentals of set-up and operation of mills and lathes. Topics include cutting tools and their geometry, CNC programs using G-Code using canned cycles, lathe turning including automatic roughing, finishing, grooving, threading, cutoff, and single point cycles, and tool path simulation for both systems.

 Intro to CNC Programming runs from 10/1-12/17 for Monday evening classes, and 10/2-12/4 for Tuesday evening classes. Both classes run from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Lab content will be supplemented with online material. Students can take these classes for credit or not for credit. Students can apply for the JFC Breathe Free Foundation Scholarship in Memory of Joseph F. Clausi to potentially receive a scholarship to fund this course.
