CNC Operator
Overview

CNC Operators produce machined parts by interpreting programs to set up and operate a computer numerical control (CNC) machine with a focus on maintaining quality and safety standards, keeping records and maintaining equipment and supplies.  In this 3 course program students will benefit from hands-on practical training in safety procedures, setup and operation of HAAS Lathe and Milling CNC machines.  Learn to create quality products and make the most of innovative technology.

    • Grade 12 Mathematics for College Technology (MCT4C) or any U level
Additional or Technical Recommendations

Experience in machining would be considered beneficial See Machine Tool Operator Certificate (848) for basic skills; See CNC Programming Certificate (070) for programming skills.

Course Number Course Name Course Description
MACH10071 CNC Operator - Lathe Examine the fundamentals of CNC (Computer Numeric Control) lathes and turning centres. Enact and practice safety procedures, setup, and operate HAAS lathes. Cultivate an understanding of CNC turning as you gain hands-on experience using industry grade tools and equipment to create quality turned parts for a practical project - a functional Stirling engine (Note: the milled components of the Stirling engine are produced in MACH 10072 – CNC Operator - Milling).  Materials included.  CSA approved safety shoes and safety glasses are mandatory and are the responsibility of the student.
MACH10072 CNC Operator - Milling Explore the fundamentals of CNC (Computer Numeric Control) milling machines and machining centres. Implement in practice safety procedures, setup, and operation of HAAS milling machines. Develop an understanding of CNC milling as you gain hands-on experience using industry grade tools and equipment in the production of milled parts for a practical project - a functional Stirling engine (Note: the turned components of the Stirling engine are produced in MACH 10071 – CNC Operator - Lathe).  Materials included.  CSA approved safety shoes and safety glasses are mandatory and are the responsibility of the student.
TDRW RE152 Blueprint Reading Mechanical Emphasis on basic Blueprint Reading and Sketching will help students to develop the ability to visualize objects and interpret dimensions, sections, tolerances, machine finishes, assemblies, terminology, etc. Students must purchase a manual (available from the College Bookstore) for the course.
