  • Principles of ISO G-Code programming.
  • Organization of a single instruction and the complete structure of a Block.
  • Description of the words set: N, G, F, S, F, T, M.
  • Syntax of the ISO G-Code words for Milling and Turning machines according to SIEMENS.
  • Systems of Coordinates: Absolutes and Relatives, Cartesians or Polars.
  • Machine coordinate system and user coordinate system.
  • Set-up of the machine for the required job.
  • Tool path: kind of paths and its control.
  • Technological parameters.
  • Structure of an NC program.
  • Samples according to SIEMENS Sinumerik810/840D.
  • understands the basics of how to program a CNC Machine.
