Day and Night
- Learn the craft of machining and how to create precision parts.
- Build projects using mills, lathes and other precision machining equipment.
- Design parts and program computer numerical control (CNC) machines to make them.
Machinists use machine tools that are either conventionally controlled or computer numerically controlled, such as lathes, milling machines, and grinders, to produce precision metal parts. Although they may produce large quantities of one part, precision machinists often produce small batches or one-of-a-kind items. The parts that machinists make range from simple bolts of steel or brass to titanium bone screws for orthopedic implants. Hydraulic parts, anti-lock brakes, and automobile pistons are other widely known products that machinists make.
