Learn Trigonometry the easy way.
In the machine shop, we use trig on a daily basis.
There is no way around it, we have to have a good understanding to be able to work in a machine shop.
But mechanical engineering maths lessons are often over complicated and confusing.
In this course, trigonometry is explained in a very easy to understand fashion from a shop floor machinist that trains students in the art of machine shop maths as part of his day to day role.
"Often, my mechanical engineering apprentices come to me concerned that they don't fully understand the trigonometry lessons they are having at college or uni.
I was the same until my training instructor, a journeyman called Alec took me under his wing and showed me an easy way to do trig.
His lessons stuck with me and I used his techniques to teach my apprentices in the years to come.
This is the way I was shown." - Marc Cronin
Who this course is for:
- Machinists, Engineers and Apprentices
I entered into the world of CNC Machining in 1991 as an apprentice for British Aerospace. After a four year apprenticeship I spent the following 26 years programming, operating and setting a full range of CNC Machines, including Lathes and milling machines.
I specialise in programming FANUC and Heidenhain machine tool operating systems up to 12 Axis.
My main roles involved hand coding at the machine instead of using CAD/CAM software.
