Prismatic Machining Preparation Assistant (MPA) - In this course you will see how to define and manage NC programs to machine parts designed in 3D Wireframe or Solid geometry with 2.5 Axis machining operations and how this product assists the NC programmer in making the link between Design and Manufacturing.

Prismatic Machining (PMG) - At the end of this course, participants will be able to define and manage prismatic (2.5 axis) operations, being aware of all capabilities in terms of strategies, parameters and transition paths.

Lathe Machining (LMG) - By the end this course you will be able to define and manage NC Programs dedicated to Machining Parts using Lathe Machining techniques. You will also be able to program Roughing, Finishing, Recessing, Grooving, Threading, and Drilling operations, and manage the Lathe Tools.

MLG: Multi-Slide Lathe Machining
Upon completion of this course you will learn how to program with CATIA V5 Multi turret & Multi spindle machines.
