About CNC Milling
Many of the appliances and objects we use every day depend on Computer Numeric Control (CNC) Milling. It is a highly sophisticated piece of machinery that creates components using precise cutting tools.
The machinist must be able to understand complex technical drawings, and have knowledge and experience of computer skills and software in order to become a skilled machine operator with an understanding of how various metals behave during the cutting process.
The ChallengeCompetitors are required to do this:
- Write/generate CNC part programs for CNC milling
- Set up a CNC milling machine to produce components to specifications achieving up to International Tolerance (IT) 7 for dimensions, DIN ISO 1101 for form and positional tolerances, and Ra 0.8 for surface quality
- Technical Description will be updated. For previous version click here.
This skill area is conducted in WSS 2023 Phase 2 (Sep/Oct 2023)
