CNC Part Program Preparation
We provide an affordable off-site Part Programming service for
most metal cutting machines, including Lathes to 6 axis and machining
centres and milling machines to 4 axis. We are able to work in
most programming languages, including Fanuc, Heidenhain, Siemens,
Mazatrol and Phillips.
We have a good understanding of machine practices, with wide
experience of hands on machining with a wide variety of metal
cutting machines both turning and milling.
Using CAD/CAM, part programs can be generated from customer drawings.
Each programming package can include set-up details, tooling sheets,
tool path details and machining times, depending on individual
Post processing is quick and easy and can be set-up to suit your
machines and working practices. Generated programs can be e-mailed
for loading to your machine, or we can visit to assist with proving
Part program generation using CAD/CAM is an affordable alternative
when your own shop floor programmer/setter may be struggling with
a complex milled profile or shapes. Also on large programs big
savings on programming time can be achieved.
Manual written Programs
Alternative to CAD/CAM generated programs are the manually produced
part program, these will be concise, and when using sub-programs
and canned cycles, can do the job using minimum program blocks
therefore less machine memory. These programs are easy to load,
easy to edit on the shop floor and easy to understand and better
suited to older machine tools and more basic work shop set-ups.
JH CNC is able to provide the expertise to deliver to your company
either method of part program generation. Part programs produced
can be supported with machining operation sheets, tooling lists
and set-up sheets, all with the objective of using best methods
and machining strategy to giving optimum tool life and best cycle
