From idea to completed project, the entire modern manufacturing process relies on an accurate and orderly fulfillment of linear steps. DEPCO's CNC Lathe curriculum, complete with a sturdy working lathe and stock material, introduces students to the CAD/CAM/ CNC process, piece-by-piece, until they are confidently completing each step independently. By the end of the curriculum, students are able to easily identify and use the different parts of the lathe, use the latest CAD software to design a part, generate Numerical Code (NC) from their design, verify the NC code, and operate the lathe to bring their original idea to life. They master various cutting operations by completing specific activities and get a real sense of accomplishment that can be verified by their take-home projects.
