  2. NC-800-PK - Description

System 800 Digital Programming Course (NC-800-PK)

  • This course is aimed at personnel who wish to combine the theoretical aspects of CNC programming with a 'hands on' practical approach. The course covers ISO programming of the Sinumerik 810D, 840D and 840Di digital controls in Turning and Milling configurations.


  • On completion of the course the student will be able to:-
  • Create NC programs with linear and circular motion
  • Create programs using R parameters and user variables
  • Create subprograms
  • Parameterise standard cycles
  • Testing of the NC programs using Simulation
  • Back up NC programs, Zero offsets and Tool offsets
Type Face-to-face training
Duration 5 days
