Intermediate Lathe

with C & Y-axis Live Milling

Course Description
This course will focus on utilizing C & Y axis milling in the Mastercam Lathe/Mill products to increase efficiency and productivity with live tooling CNC lathes. Users will learn the processes needed to supplement their lathe foundation.

The class will cover programming for a single turret style lathe that utilizes the X, Z, C, & Y axes with a with both single and dual spindle setups. Users will also learn how to focus on live milling processes to manipulate different types of geometry and output code to the CNC lathe quickly and accurately.

Method of Instruction 
This course is a classroom setting experience with personal handout instructions to be completed by the student. 
After completion of the class the students can guide themselves back through each module and refresh their skills by completing the part at their own pace.

After completing this course, you will be able to:

• Explain and discuss the workflow for creating C & Y-axis live milling toolpaths
• Create toolpaths for both left and right spindles for CNC Lathe
• Transfer parts from the left Spindle to the right Spindle using multiple transfer routines
• Demonstrate proficiency in utilizing live milling toolpaths in the Mastercam Lathe product

Prerequisite(s): Basic computer skills & Mastercam Basic Lathe are required
