Tool Training: CNC Mill
Somerville, United States
If you already know what you want to build and you just want to learn how to use the tools you need safely (or if you just want a refresher), Tool Training sessions are for you. Classes are kept small so each student gets a lot of personal attention, and each training session is themed for a certain set of tools - just take the sessions you need to get going.
Students will become familiar with basic machine anatomy and various safe automated CNC milling operations. Students will leave with an understanding of the MillPwr conversational CNC controller and part programming techniques.
If proficiency is achieved, students will leave the class qualified to do independent work on the Asylum's Sharp Vertical Milling Machine with MillPwr CNC Servo Controller.
Practice materials will be provided by Artisan's Asylum.
Manual machining tool training sessions are available on Sunday afternoons on alternate weekends, from 2:30-5pm. You can register for a particular session according to the dates on the ticket types above.
