CNC Programming: Principles and Applications sets machinists and machine operators on a systematic path to mastering G- and M-code programming, guiding them from initial planning through programming of an actual NC machining job. The first section of the book lays the foundation by introducing readers to the fundamentals of CNC machine tools, manufacturing processes, and necessary technical mathematics. The next four chapters of the book explain concepts of NC part programming, and the final section features advanced programming concepts and techniques for the milling center and lathe. Readers who have acquired some conventional machining experience, yet have little or no formal academic training, will find this how-to and reference book to be particularly well-suited to their needs.
