Programming Training Curriculum


Who should attend: These classes are geared toward non-Swiss type CNC programmers. We expect most in the class to have written multiple running programs for other CNC machines and now desire to know how to write programs for the specific class model machine. 1st time Swiss programmers are common in this class. Also many experienced Cincom programmers do attend to brush up on today’s programming techniques!


Swiss Concept – It is difficult to teach programming without some core fundamentals reviewed

MC-Data review – An in-depth review of how the control uses the Citizen proprietary MC-Data information

Mode Selection – Deeply instruct all G600 command mode selection codes used on the specific machine of the class

Program Beginning and safety/start process

Program Ending with barfeed and ending codes

Class will review/write a program together to learn programming basics

Review many other programming codes and processes like peck drilling, threading, milling, and others

Time permitting, attendees will write a program for a class part print and dry run or sometimes run their part

This is a programming class but the class will see setup of collet and guide bushing adjustment along with tool setting to understand the entire process.

Advanced Applications Curriculum


Who should attend: First time or new programmers should not attend. These classes are geared toward Cincom Swiss type CNC programmers who have written multiple programs and performed multiple part setups. The attendee should know all the basics. We will review many in-depth topics and perform some of them on demo machines in house.


Spindle Synchronization in depth

Multiple Parts per chucking / and why!

MC-Data review – An in-depth review of how the control uses the Citizen proprietary MC-Data information and how to use it in programming

Mode Selection – Mainly review the less-used modes like G620 and G640

Macro programming review. How and when you might use a macro.

Gun Drilling review

Thread whirling

  • Milling Interpolation(G12.1)
  • Cylindrical Plane (G16/G7)
  • Angular Interpolation (G950/G173) Angled tools programming
  • Long parts re-chucking
  • Servo torque sensing and some unique ways to use it
  • B-Axis commands when and why
  • others

Maintenance Training


Who should attend: These classes are geared toward maintenance staff. We expect most in the class have basic knowledge of ballscrews and bearings and CNC concepts of axis alignment and desire how to do it on the class specific model. New to maintenance staff can attend but some topics take years to learn and can’t be expected to be known from one class!


Swiss Concepts Review –Quick review of how it works!

Machine axis and tooling alignment will be reviewed. Physical alignment and also including what we call axis Grid Shift adjustment and fine adjustment of hidden tool pocket data. The class will use indicators and perform these settings.

Axis checks of backlash and motion review

Guide Bushing bearing check spindle checks

Review a Guide Bushing Bearing replacement along with proper loading of the new bearings

Review ballscrew replacement and proper loading of ballscrews

Review how to read I/O signals and the class will see how switches and signals can be checked

Control Backup SRAM and others

Regular Preventative Maintenance review
