Precision Machining - Basic/Intermediate/Advanced

A precision machinist is a sculptor, removing material from solid metal to create highly precise parts that have great value in industry.  If you want to develop skills required for technical manufacturing operations; or if you are interested in learning a specific area of machining, we invite you to start precision machining classes with us.  (4 – 48 hour classes required)

Basic Precision Machining
Includes general shop and machine safety, machining terminology, machining mathematics and precision measurements, blueprint reading and the basics of manual turning, grinding, drilling and milling operations.  You work on basic turning, boring, facing and milling in our state of the art machining shop.  No prerequisites.

Intermediate Precision Machining
Will increase your knowledge in lathe, mills and drill press operations, using different work holding devices; and introduce you to the basic of CNC coding/operations.  Typical tasks will include cutting tapers and screw threads, grooving, pocket milling, drilling and tapping.  PrerequisiteBasic Precision Machining or equivalent experience

Advanced Precision Machining
Will allow students to work on various lathe and mill tasks that utilize our CNC equipment.  Shop activities in drawing basics/engineering (CAD/CAM) are used to improve your understanding of CNC machines and programming.  Other Advanced topics can be covered.  Prerequisite Intermediate Precision Machining or equivalent experience

In all classes, the student is responsible for materials on personal or special projects approved by the instructor.  Safety glasses and books are required after the first class.  Student is responsible for supplies & safety glasses.  Book required.
