CNC Machining and Manufacturing Technology Learn CNC Machine Training: Because what you make matters

Manufacturing impacts many industries that drive the economy. This hands-on field calls for more qualified technicians as 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.

What is CNC Machining?

Lincoln Tech offers this cutting-edge CNC Machine training program in East Windsor, CT; Grand Prairie, TX; Indianapolis, IN; and Mahwah, NJ. Our programs around the country are supported by Haas Automation, a leading worldwide provider of CNC equipment. Students train in skills like CNC milling, turning, CAM systems, concepts in 5-axis machining, programming CNC equipment and more!


Careers redefining “manufacturing” for the 21st century!

Long gone are the days of working in a gritty manufacturing plant - CNC Machining creates cleaner, high-tech 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 to gears for cars, trucks and airplanes; from a piece of wood to parts for new home construction.

CNC machine training at Lincoln Tech lets you put your potential to work:

  • Our partnership with Haas Automation means you will train on the same types of machinery used in today's advanced manufacturing facilities.
  • You'll prepare 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 focus on geometry for milling parts.
  • You'll also learn how to read blueprints, make precision measurements, and use Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) equipment to direct tool paths.

Upon graduating from the CNC Machining and Manufacturing Technology program at Lincoln, you will be ready for an entry-level positions as a CNC Machine Operator or Set-up Technician. 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.
