Computerized Manufacturing & Machining


Work activities in machine shop involve applying knowledge of machine capabilities, the properties of materials, and shop practices to set-up and operate various machines. The skills needed to position work pieces, adjust machines, and verify the accuracy of machine functions and finish products are taught by classroom instruction, demonstration, and hands on experience.

Machinists use machine tools such as lathes, drill presses, and milling machines to produce precision metal parts. They use their knowledge of the working properties of metals such as steel, cast iron, aluminum, and brass and their skill with machine tools to plan and carry out operations needed to make machined products that meet precise specifications.
