About this course

Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Machining is the process through which computers control machine-based processes in manufacturing. The kinds of machines controlled include lathes, mills, routers and grinders – all used for manufacturing of metal and plastic products.

In this course, you’ll learn the ins-and-outs of CNC machining; building the essential knowledge to develop and operate a project with a CNC machine.

From plan interpretation to machining and quality control, you will learn how to make the right decision in every stage of a project through videos and interactive activities.

We invite you to take part of the “Jaque Mate” company project, the objective of which is to produce chess pieces.

Are you up for the challenge?
