Advanced Machining Processes

Course Date:

Registration Period:

60 hours / 7.5 day


Mode of Training:
Facilitated Learning (F2F)


Course Introduction

In the Precision Engineering industry, there is a strong need to produce parts meeting all specifications. Very often, setups are required on different machines to complete a precision part. Failure to understand the effect of cumulative tolerances leads to rejects. This course provides participants the insight into allocation of tolerances should different setups are required. Multi-axis machining is also introduced as an alternative to produce precision parts minimizing the use of expensive fixtures. This will be most suitable for low volume high mix manufacturing environment. 

This course aims to provide participants with an integral approach to parts and components machining. Topics include job planning, work holding, tool selection and advanced machining processes. Participants will also be provided with an introduction on multi-axis machine operations.

Course Objective

To provide participants with a working knowledge in advanced machining (5-axis) operations and dimensional tolerances analysis.

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

• Import part models into CAM system
• Extract surfaces and create entities to support machining processes
• Apply suitable parameters on CNC machining processes
• Develop appropriate sequence of operations to produce precision parts
• Address the necessary workpiece setup required to meet GD&T specifications
• Analyse part tolerance and its allocation to the respective machining processes
• Create machining operations on parts with advanced surfaces
• Create machining operations on Multi-axis machines for precision components

Course Outline

• NC Part Programming and Work Holding on CNC machines
• Tolerances Analysis
• Achieving GD & T specifications
• Multi-Axis Machining operations
• Advanced Surface Machining Processes
