FANUC Certified Education CNC Training

With the current trend of reshoring coupled with the ongoing problem of a shortage of skilled workers, the need to train future machinists is paramount to fill growing gaps in the domestic work force. A new employee needs to be productive right out of the gate and run their machine with minimum supervision.

However, the reality is that manufacturing is running very lean and there are few training resources available. Since the desired outcome is to have a worker that can setup and run a CNC machine effectively, it makes sense that the bulk of the education provides the necessary knowledge and hands-on experience. Community and technical colleges and vocational schools are convenient and economical sources for students to get the training they need.

As the leading CNC manufacturer in the industry with the largest installed base, students are most likely going to be using a FANUC CNC when they enter the workforce. So, it only makes sense that they are taught on FANUC CNCs in school. As a result, FANUC is engaging with the educational community to assist them in providing the best possible training to ensure that the students have the skills required by industry.

After consulting with education experts, FANUC America has created a new FANUC CNC Education Certification Training program focusing on making sure that students that qualify have learned suitable skills from a FANUC certified instructor, teaching a FANUC approved curriculum, and using genuine FANUC CNC equipment. For a basic CNC G-code class, NCGuide Academic Packages may be sufficient, but for hands-on lathe and machining center courses, more than 50% of their shop work must be completed using machines with a FANUC CNC.

The FANUC CNC simulator is a perfect addition to the classroom and an essential component to gain
maximum exposure to FANUC CNC controls when actual machine time is limited. Based on the
FANUC 0iF platform, the simulator will allow you at power on to switch between milling and turning
configurations to teach programming, navigation and operation on the world’s most popular CNC
control. Simple configurations make it easy to learn how to operate and edit data on a modern FANUC
control. FANUC’s MGi conversational interface allows user to graphically generate programs that can
be simulated in 3D, prior to being converted back to conventional NC programs to be used on machine
tools using FANUC controls. Uploading and downloading (read and punch) functions are facilitated by
means of the standard Flash ATA interface and USB interface, and DNC functions are supported by
Ethernet and Flash ATA card.
