GENERAL PROGRAMMING TECHNIQUE

There are no hard-and-fast rules for CNC programming.
Ten different machinist programmers will probably come up with 10 variations in developing a program for the same part. Your experience in manual machining will provide the basis for developing a CNC program, and like all things, your programs, at least early on, will go through evolutions of correction and revisions. Generally speaking, your program should always strive for efficiency and a minimum of lost motion in tool and workpiece positioning. Productivity is the watchword for CNC work. The purpose of all CNC technology is to accomplish machining
tasks with great speed and accuracy.
A few seconds saved in productive programming can translate into many dollars saved in a large production run.
Feeds and speeds should be maximized for the material being machined and the type of tooling used. Tooling engineers are constantly
developing new and more productive cutting tools for CNC operations.
If you work in this industry as an or programmer,you should stay aware of new developments in cutting tools.
