CNC Machinist Training

CNC Machinists

CNC machinists wear many hats. While their primary role is to facilitate in the operation and setup of computer numerical machines, their work can also evolve from that of a machine operator to more mechanical roles that resemble that of a mechanic, a fabricator, and a quality control inspector. CNC machinists work in facilities that produce parts made of metal, plastic or other materials. Those parts are then used to create a large, more complex finished product. Depending on the facility where the machinist is employed, they may work only on specific parts or they may be involved in the full product production. Work as a CNC machinist is fast paced and requires workers to be agile and adept to problem solving on a daily basis.
