Parametric Programming with FANUC Custom Macro

COURSE # TRCOLP-391 - 20 hours 
Registration Form

Course Overview
Master custom macro programming for CNC machining and turning centers. Custom macro provides users countless benefits. Just about every facet of a CNC environment can be enhanced by incorporating methods afforded by custom macro. Students learn the benefits of custom macro application and how to implement improvements when applications are found.

Custom Macro can help you, among many other things:

  • Reduce machine down-time between production runs (setup reduction)

  • Reduce production run time (cycle time reduction)

  • Reduce tool maintenance time (dull tool replacement, trial machining, and sizing)

  • Simplify complex tasks performed by setup people and operators

  • Set error-traps for avoiding costly mistakes (error proof)

  • Shorten program verification time

  • Simplify program creation, especially with part-families

  • Create canned cycles for unique machining operations

  • Automate sizing adjustments during long periods of unattended operation

  • Interface accessory devices with your CNC machine(s)

  • Invent compensation types that are unique to your needs

  • Track machine usage and provide productivity monitoring data

The list of productivity-enhancing Custom Macro benefits is impressive, limited only by your own ingenuity. Before you can implement any improvement, of course, you must know that it is possible to do so. This class provides countless ideas and suggestions that will stir your creative juices - real-world applications that you can start using today.

Basic understanding of machining practices and a general understanding of G-Code programming.
