This thesis is intended to serve as an easy introductory guide on how to work with Bridgeport Series I CNC Milling, Drilling and Boring machine. An attempt has been made to make the subject matter simpler to give the reader a good start in programming and operating this machine
The spectrum of technological implementation of CNC machine tools is extremely broad,. Companies utilizing advanced technologies such as computer graphics, DNC and Group Technology are in this field for some time. Even small shops are getting equipped with CNC machine tools. The present CNC systems, which are less costly, more reliable and far more capable than conventional automatic equipments, have brought CNC within reach of even the smallest shop. Considering their evergrowing demand and acceptance, almost every mechanical engineer will have to deal with them at one point.
The work presented in this thesis is a concise introductory guide to Series I CNC Milling machine.. Various functions of NC machine have been linked with! the main text to provide a reasonably understandable introductory manual for the particular CNC machine.
