This laboratory manual is intended for use in teaching computer-numerical-control (CNC) programming using the Emco Maier Compact 5 Lathe. Developed for use at the postsecondary level, this material contains a short introduction to CNC machine tools. This section covers CNC programs, CNC machine axes, and CNC coordinate systems. The following section is a specific treatment of the major programming functions of the lathe. This section discusses the Emco keyboard, program entry, G codes and related function of each code, tape deck operations (loading a program from tape and saving a program on tape), and error codes.
