CNC machining curriculum introduces students to CNC machining technology and CAM software


Jul 12, 2010

Techno Inc.’s Educational CNC Division has introduced the “Basic Manufacturing Skills: An Introduction to CNC Machining” curriculum, which is available for technology education courses from grades six through college. This curriculum comes with a 170-page curriculum workbook and an instructor’s CD with all projects, software files and tests ready for customization. All Techno Servo CNC machines come with a free sample copy of the workbook and multiple copies can be added for a complete classroom setup.

“I worked with Dr. George Klein and tried to create a complete educational resource with this curriculum,” says Sales Manager James Renner. “Not only do we include a history of manufacturing that details the basic evolution of tools, but we include various lessons on both CNC machining technology and the use of leading industry CAM software.”

Students using this curriculum will learn the basics of CNC machining and Mastercam software while creating real-world projects. Instructors will have the opportunity to customize the included tests to reflect their specific classroom strategies and the included example files help demonstrate each of the activities outlined within the workbook. Also available for use with the “Introduction to CNC Machining” curriculum is Techno’s Intro to Mfg. Curriculum Tool Kit, a 12-piece set designed for those who purchase this package.
