Precision Machining Technology
Build Valuable Skills as a Precision Machine Technician (PMT)
(CNC Machining and Composites Manufacturing)
The Precision Machine Technology (PMT) program leads to careers in machine tool technologies. This program is the foundation for the Precision Machinist trade principles and conventional machining operations followed by computer applications of modern manufacturing technology. PMT provides technical, hands-on training on CNC machines that are similar to those used to create parts for the auto, aerospace, and agriculture industries involving composites, polymers and injection molded parts.
Precision Machinist operates metal-removing equipment such as lathes, drill presses, milling machines and grinders, many of which are computer numerically controlled (CNC). Precision Machinist may specialize in operating one type of machine or they may be required to work equally well on several.
Graduates of this program:
- Understand the types of composites and polymers used in manufacturing precision components
- Operate injection molding equipment
- Acquire proficiency to apply for formal Apprenticeship Programs for development into the trades journeyman pathway
- Develop skills in
- shop mathematics
- blueprint reading and engineer designs
- machining processes
- precision layout and measurement
- organization, communication and teamwork
- independent problem solving
- programming and operating computer numerical controlled (CNC) milling and turning centers
- In safe manner, efficiently operate:
- engine lathes
- drill presses
- surface grinders
- horizontal and vertical mills
- CNC machining and turning centers
- Use precision- measuring instruments such as micrometers and calipers to inspect parts for conformance to design
- Have entry-level career opportunities as either manufacturing technicians or computer control programmers and operators
- Work in machining shops or in manufacturing industries, such as machinery manufacturing and transportation equipment manufacturing
