CNC at Pembrokeshire College is a set of two 8 hour courses developed for local businesses, who would like to further employee knowledge in CNC machining. The course is progressive, enabling trainees to develop and learn new skills.
CNC Machining for Industry
- An Introduction to CNC Machining
- Programming Basics
Past experience has shown that hours of production time are lost within industry due to machine down time. This can be caused by a number of reasons such as tool breakage, fixture failures or tolerancing issues, all of which, more often than not, can be remedied by program alterations. This loss of machine production time also means a loss in lead times and therefore a loss in revenue. For example, if you have a main CNC programmer/setter there can be a delay in alterations to programs that with a little knowledge and confidence can be made by the trained operator.
The benefits of upskilling and re-training not only enhance the operators’ skillset but also, as seen previously, their general attitude to work and job satisfaction. Staff that can overcome problems and have the confidence in doing so are a positive addition to any machine shop.
