CN8285

Suitable for:



  • Unit 23 of the BTEC Higher National: CAD/CAM

  • Unit 40 of the BTEC National award in Engineering: Computer Aided Manufacturing

Description

Details

The 4 axis MicroCNC milling machine allows students to understand how G codes are used to control a CNC operated milling machine.  The four stepper motors and DC motor connect to our CNC system controller hardware to allow full control of the miller using the G code file host software.  Students can use the hardware and software to see how each G code command affects the machine operation and create complex work pieces from PU blocks or acrylic pieces.

Learning objectives/experiments

  • 4 axis CNC machine construction
  • Simple G and M code protocol
  • CNC machine operation using G codes
  • Creation of milled and turned parts using CNC technology

 

Supplied as a kit which needs modest assembly.

You will also need: MicroCNC system controller and base plate.

Compatible software: Deskproto CAM software
