Vocational
Machinery

Machinists have the skills for welding, die-casting, and precision machining. They use drill presses, grinders, and lathes to produce parts.

Machinists most often learn skills with on-the-job training or through apprenticeships. Such programs take several years to complete, and many apprenticeships are conducted through local community colleges or vocational schools. Students also may enroll in a two-year machining program at a trade or vocational school.

Students will learn how to read blueprints and create mechanical drawings, along with classes in safety, science, math and physics. With the increase of technology and machines, computer classes are taught, to keep workers up-to-date with the operation and programming of certain machine tools.

Machinists will use their skills to accurately measure and cut a part according to the plans given to them. Safety is a constant issue as they maintain the rate and speed of a machine, along with making sure the machine is not overheated. Once a part is cut, the machinist will use tools to measure their work and check for accuracy.
