Nearly everything we see or use today has been manufactured utilizing CNC technology - e.g. cars, airplanes, components of machines of all types, moulds for tools, medical prosthetics, cell phones, toys, and more.
CNC milling machines are programmed with a computer code to read and store instructions to control and drive a powered mechanical device to cut metal and other solid materials and shape precision products.
The milling machinist will read and interpret engineering technical drawings and specifications; generate and program a plan using a computer; set up the tooling, work holding device and work piece; manipulate the cutting conditions; and operate, inspect and maintain the precision and accuracy of dimensions and details throughout the process.
They are proficient at metal work skills and understands how metals react to various processes, and are a skilled operator of both computers and machines. The most skilled machinist always works to optimize the efficiency of the process as well as the quality of output.
