Dynamic and efficient, 5-axis machining is fast becoming the standard in manufacturing. As more complex geometries and production efficiencies are demanded by industry, how do we prepare students with the right skills needed to excel as advanced, 5-axis adept machinists?

Follow 5 progressive steps:

Step One: Choose professional-grade CNC machines and software by EMCO

The benefits of choosing EMCO’s high-quality professional-grade 5-axis machines, can be quantified in more time on the shop floor teaching, and less downtime, mired in troubleshooting or waiting for technical support. 

These well-supported CNC education packages are supported by the leaders in today’s advanced manufacturing field – Seimens and MasterCAM to make sure your students are getting real-world skills that transfer seamlessly into a well-paying career upon graduation.

Step Two: Choose the Right Software

Future-oriented CNC Training Begins with the right foundation. Siemens’ SINUMERIK CNC technology platform has long been the preferred choice within elite CNC manufacturing tiers worldwide. Logically, using the same CNC technology platform most widely used in industry to train students will provide them with the skill-set actually needed by today’s employers.

Siemens SINUMERIK CNC technology offers:

  • One control platform teaches comprehensive foundational skills right up to advanced 5-axis CNC instruction.
  • The platform most used by high-tech manufacturing
  • Backed by the world’s leading motion control company
  • Nationwide service, support and training
  • Industry-recognized certification upon graduation
