Putting all the elements together, this book addresses CNC (Computer Numerical Control) technology in a comprehensive format that offers abundant illustrations, examples and exercises. It includes a strong foundation in blue print reading, graphical descriptions of CNC machine tools, a chapter on right triangle trigonometry and programming that uses Fanuc Controllers. It emphasizes program pattern recognition and contains completely solved programming examples and self-contained programming examples. Thoroughly updated for this edition, it includes two new chapters, four new appendices, and is bundled with Predator Simulation and Kwik Trig software.
