This course is designed for inspection personnel, engineering personnel, production personnel, entry level inspectors, and those who would like to enter into the field of dimensional measurement and CMM programming.
It is important for all students of this course to have some basic measurement-related knowledge prior to attending this CMM training course so that students within the class are not held back. Each registrant will need to complete and pass a pre-skills examination to determine his/her experience and knowledge in the areas listed below. If the student lacks experience in these areas and does not pass the pre-skills test, we offer various courses that will provide the knowledge necessary meet the prerequisites in order to take the CMM course.
- Print Reading of drawings with tolerances
- Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing
- Basic Dimensional Measurement Tools
- PC and Windows
This program covers everything from the program interface, probe selection and qualification, and programming. Also included is measuring common features such as planes, lines, points cylinders, etc. Alignments and constructing common features such as bolt circles and intersections are covered in detail as well as simple dimensioning and GD&T.
A greater benefit of this CMM class is the option to have your current programs edited and used in production! Depending on the experience of the participants, this course may include patterns, loops, curves and scanning (as well as other advanced topics).
- CMM instruction by an expert CMM Programmer who is also a Certified Quality Inspector (CQI).
- Hands-on programming using a CMM training block as well as actual manufactured parts.
- Small groups (2-4 students) to allow for maximum learning.
