Machine Tool Technology

About

Almost every product made by American industry contains metal parts or is manufactured by machines made of metal parts. Over one million people are employed as machinists, tool and die makers, instrument makers, machine tool operators, set-up and lay-out people.

This program is designed to train students to set-up and safely operate machine tools such as milling machines, lathes, surface grinders, EDM’s and drill presses. Students also learn to determine dimensions and tolerances of a part to be machined, sequence of operations, and the tools, materials, and  machines required to make that part from blueprint, sketch, damaged part or description of the part to be replaced. In addition to the traditional shop machines, the most modern Computer Numerical Control (CNC) equipment is available for students to receive hands-on experience.
