TITANS of CNC

Absolute Game Changer!!!

Learn and or Teach CAD, CAM & CNC Machining while lifting up and building your own community!

Check out our Academy-Small Groups!

We are excited to have over 30 small groups signed up worldwide. We currently are in the process of working with each of the Small Group Hosts... If you have not been contacted you will be soon.

We are also excited to have this new Map which will be Live soon. Basically, Hosts and Members will look on the map and zoom in to find a Group or to see that there is no Group yet, and possibly decide that maybe one should be started.

As you zoom in the maps and locations become clearer... and when someone clicks on a Group on the Map, it will take them to a special page designed for that specific group. You will be able to contact the group host personally and find out additional info and when the meeting times are.

Here is info on the Small Groups and How to sign up:

We're excited to announce "Titans of CNC: Academy - Small Groups" the next evolution in creating a new generation of CAD/CAM and CNC experts.

Business owners/shop leaders will host small groups throughout America, and beyond, where Academy users will come together and collaborate to learn how to design, program, and CNC Academy parts.

This is a great opportunity to create community in your own environment where you can advance your technique, bounce ideas off each other, and learn from hands-on application.

It's a chance for leaders to positively impact our industry, network with like-minded individuals, build their own brand, and become pillars of excellence in their communities.

Our Academy already has well over 20,000 members in 70 countries. It's time to bring our community together on a more personal level.

TITANS of CNC: Academy is proud to introduce Dimensional Inspection Reports (DIRs). The DIRs are now available for all of the TITAN Building Blocks, and will soon be available for every educational project. These reports were modeled off the actual report template used by TITAN’s world-class inspection team.

We believe Quality Control is the most important aspect of manufacturing. TITANS of CNC: Academy strongly advises that you dedicate sufficient time to understanding the quality control process. Making CNC machined parts is not good enough. You must meet or exceed all inspection requirements to ensure that you meet all of your contractual obligations.

You can find the DIRs in related files to the right of each "Titan Building Block" project.

Speaking as a CMM/First article inspector, this warms my heart down to the bottom. I love looking at good parts, but almost as good is seeing a part that's out, which the machinist already flagged. That means they're paying attention & taking pride in their work. Also, pay special attention to your chamfers. 😉

oh man I used to hate that feeling when the quality inspector did a first article report on my parts Carl Desserich haha! I learned so much from the process though. It opens up a whole world of measuring equipment that is key to making high precision parts.

Small, agile companies in Carlsbad continue to make waves. @San Diego Business Journal named Carlsbad’s Auroralight, Inc. its small company winner at its Manufacturing Awards. The company’s rapid prototyping processes, using 3D printing and CAD/CAM software reduced time to design and manufacture new products. bit.ly/2gdmiAC. Check this out Titan, this is our company in Carlsbad, Calif. American made 👊

This is awesome. Quality is paramount in every part and process. Way to integrate even more vital skills into this world class learning program!

I was told once "You should never have a quality control dept. You should have a quality assurance dept. If you have to control your quality something is wrong."

QA isn't for those who react to boo games, especially when you are dealing with the egos of welders n tool makers

Actually made this part plus a few others.

Great addition to the academy

Where is the 4th decimal tolerance?

We got em too! Love it. Thanks for sharing!

It's only bad if you can measure it.

Having trouble accessing the Academy group. Can someone look into why? Thanks.

I love it as well

Brandon Jon McGee Anthony Deblock Rodney Allen Rylan Rees Christopher Harrison Karn Bryce Bakke Dylan DeMent . I'm curious to know if you find these useful.

This is great stuff. Thank You

YES! LOVE IT!

Where is the .125 radius ? I see chamfers

Awesome! Another "Thank you Titan!"

TITANS of CNC

First Look - at a New Teaching Series that we are developing for You. The teaching series will be added in the education drop down at academy.titansofcnc.com

Understanding and Perfecting Advanced Fixturing Techniques is a must if you want to Survive & Compete in a Global Manufacturing Economy.

Here is just one simple POD example. Teachers will teach the students how to machine 1 Pod, which includes the installation of a Mitee-Bite Products LLC Clamp. Then they will place a raw piece of material in 1 side... machine it, flip it... and machine the part Complete.

Very simple machining project, but then in CAD - You will learn how to take what you just made and simply duplicate it to make Fixture Sub Plates, Base Plates, Tombstones etc.

We will have a whole series of different techniques which will expand your mind to think of all the possibilities when approaching any simple production Job!

Who else is teaching this stuff?

We need to teach our Kids, Machinists and Shops to Out-Compete the Competition!!!

BOOM!!!

Jesus, tooling up two pallets on an HMC with that many MiteeBite clamps will easily pay the first 3-4 payments on a capable multi-tasking turning center where that part should be produced. Plus it'll save you the cost of the numerous Cortisone shots your operator will require for their wrists.

This example looks cool, but definately not practical in this case.. 1- Way too much $ to invest in fixturing. 2- This would take way too many hours/days to program and setup. 3- Would take too much time to load/unload parts. 4- Would most likely still need to debur some edges of the parts that couldn't easily be debured/programmed in the machine. 5- Still need to saw blanks first, and debur them before loading. 6- Better have a tool break check in the program for when the button pusher forgets to tighten a clamp and the part moves while cutting and breaks the tool, and possibly wrecking that particular clamp setup also.. This part is definately best suited for a twin spindle Mill Turn, preferably with a bar feeder to run completely unmanned (unpersoned). 1- Minimal fixture costs-couple sets of soft jaws at most. 2- Minimal program/setup time-hours-maybe 1 day, not days.. 3- Load/unload time=0 if equipped with bar feeder and parts catcher. 4- Deburing can be easily done completely by the machine. 5- Set it up, run 1 part, check it, load the bar feeder up and let it make $. 6- While the job you just setup is now running unmanned, go setup the next job.. PS-Almost forgot the most important thing.. BOOM!

i agree with teaching this industry, but not like this. by the time you draw this, spend thousands on fixture materials, machine the fixture, then start to run the job only to realize how bad of a setup it actually is, a lathe will have produced hundreds if not thousands of the same parts with better dimensional accuracy

Good thing they invented lathes... But this is the perfect kind of example for students to practice on.

Even Better,set up your machine up with a few hydraulic collet chucks or power vices and have a collaborative robot take care of loading and unloading your machine. This allows your guys focus on quality or gives them the opportunity to set up another machine. Make your equipment work for you, not paying your workforce to babysit it. #hirerobots #putchinaoutofbusiness

Glad I'm not the button pusher for that job

Intresting. While i have been maching and programming for a while now its interesting to see how others do things. I never stop learning

Titan Ty Gilroy I so cant wait for this. Pretty excited

Koen Davina sir soon we can make it like this..

Bobby, Alki asked me to show you this!

Levi Gressett, care for some carpal tunnel?

Turn mill with bar feed and parts catcher

Have you seen this Rob Laplante ?

Whole new level of button pushing

Spoke at Ventura College last night.

This pic was taken early before everyone was in the room... There were kids of all ages, older students, parents and machinists. Everyone was so excited about CNC Machining:-) I also got to talk with the new CNC Instructor at Ventura and he is pumped to use the Free Academy.titansofcnc.com to take his program to the next level. Super solid guy with a heart for teaching and our industry.

I signed a huge amount of autographs and took a bunch of pictures... but one family in particular really hit it home... A Grandmother came up to me towing 4 little kids... They must have been 6, 8 10 and 14...
Well, she said the 14 yr old watched my show every Monday night and that both parents were working... said he bugged her all week and begged her to bring him to see me speak. Said, that she had to pack up the whole family so he could come see me and thanked me for touching her grandson... I said, No... Thank you for touching me:-)

Come on, is that Awesome or what?

I better sharpen up to keep up with all the young talent you are inspiring! Thanks for bringing this back. It has been hard to find sharp young talent. Young men and women, NEVER STOP LEARNING!!!!

So awesome! It was incredible meeting you before manufacturing day in frankenmuth last week!!! I hope that they appreciate the academy as much as I do.

That is a great story! I hand out Surfcam's fully functional demo CD's to people who wish to learn CAD/CAM and machining. It's easier than ever! I'm a journeyman Wood Pattern Maker who made the changeover to CAD/CAM starting in 1986 and becoming a full time CAD/CAM operator in 1991. Softwares I've used over the years include ComputerVision CADDS5, Personal Designer and Personal Machinist, SmartCam, CAMAX, WorkNC, Surfcam, Cimatron, Solid Edge and Solid Works. The trade high school I attended was state of the art before the computer age and during the 1960's it became a vocational school for Juvenile Delinquents. Consequently many of the journeyman I served my apprenticeship under were juvenile delinquents during their high school years. Most of them retiring wealthy. Thanks for turning your life around and serving others in such a profoundly positive way!

Thank you TITANS of CNC it was great to have you!👊

God bless braddah! You are a blessing!

Man I have been a,CNC Machinist for 21 yrs. I love your program and what you do for everyone! !!!

Congratulations on the beautiful work!

I'm proud to make your acquaintance. You are truly blessed!

Yo Titan you still in the 805? swing by my shop I'll buy you lunch!

Career day at Maui Waena Intermediate is late October...come chat with my kids!

Cant wait to see you at the College of the Canyons on Thursday TITANS of CNC

I have a customer about to start school for machining. I sent him links to this FB page and your YouTube content to give him some additional motivation. JMF TAG

We enjoyed our evening

That is awesome

Nice

Very cool indeed !

VERY Awesome.
