CNC Machine Training and Manufacturing Technology

CNC Careers built on technical skills - because what you make matters.

Manufacturing impacts many industries that drive the economy. This hands-on field calls for more qualified technicians as supply and demand increases, and as new technology evolves. CNC (Computerized Numerical Control) Machinists are behind-the-scenes conductors who literally build things from scratch using computers.

Lincoln Tech offers this cutting-edge CNC Machine training program in Grand Prairie, TX; Indianapolis, IN; and Mahwah, NJ. Students train in skills like CNC milling, turning, CAM systems, concepts in 5-axis machining, programming CNC equipment and more!

 

What is CNC Machining?

Long gone are the days of working in a gritty manufacturing plant - CNC Machining creates cleaner work places! CNC techs produce a wide range of manufactured goods and work with a full line of raw materials – plastics, wood, metal and more. This skilled trades career calls for sophisticated programming skills to bring products from concept design to reality: from a piece of titanium, for example, to an artificial hip; from a piece of steel for gears for cars, trucks and airplanes; from a piece of wood to parts for new home construction.

What You'll Learn Through CNC Machine Training

Some highlights of this hands-on program include:

  • Our partnership with Hurco Companies at our Indianapolis campus means you will train on machinery exclusive to Lincoln, which is used in today's advanced manufacturing facilities.
  • Preparation to qualify for credentials from the National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) in the areas of materials, safety, job planning, bench work, milling, and CNC Turning.
  • Computer-Aided-Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided-Manufacturing (CAM) software programs focused on geometry for milling parts.
  • Practice reading blueprints and precision measurements, and experience using Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) to direct tool paths.
  • Courses in CNC Milling, Set-up and Programming, as well as CAM Mill Design and Tool path which shows you how to program CNC machines for accuracy and precision.

Upon graduating from the CNC Machining and Manufacturing program at Lincoln, you will be ready for an entry-level CNC Machine Operator or Set-up Technician position, as your newly-acquired skills prepare you to work in fields such as automotive, aviation, military defense, aerospace and more.

The future of manufacturing is headed in an exciting direction. Get the CNC machine training skills needed to run CNC computers, equipment and machines at Lincoln.
