CNC / ISO G-Code Language

Code                 CNC 411

Short description: 

CNC machines are one of the most important equipment used in industry to produce parts. This workshop will provide the necessary know-how based on hands-on training on real industrial equipment upon the ISO G-Code language.



  • Brief history about the ISO G-Code language: the beginning, the actual state, the industrial point.
  • Principles of ISO G-Code programmation.
  • Organization of a single instruction and the complete structure of a Block.
  • Description of the words set: N, G, F, S, F, T, M.
  • Syntax of the ISO G-Code words for Milling and Turning machines.
  • Systems of Coordinates: Absolutes and Relatives, Cartesians or Polars.
  • Machine coordinate system and user coordinate system.
  • Set-up of the machine for the required job.
  • Tool path: kind of paths and its control.
  • Technological parameters.
  • Structure of a NC program.
  • Samples according to ISO G-Code language
