This is an intense course on how to implement, evaluate and select components for high efficiency milling to get shorter cycle times, reduce tool wear and extend machine life. Students will learn guidelines to selecting key components with hands on interactions to build their ability in identifying and creating an efficient milling process. The outcome of this course is for students to analyze the whole milling process, select the correct components and create an efficient CNC milling process to increase productivity using Mastercam Dynamic Motion.
