Metal Manufacturing

MetalManufacturing program of study prepares students to enter the highdemand areas of welding and precision metal manufacturing. Studentsdevelop advanced skills in setting up and operating machine tools toproduce precision parts to specifications and develop the requiredskills in preparation for automated manufacturing. Students learn allrequired areas of manual machining before embarking on the high techskills of computer numerical control (CNC) machine tools. Students areinvolved in all aspects of the machining process, from blueprint readingand interpretation, precision measuring, through material removal.Students learn to operate mills and lathes, hydraulic shears and punchmachines as well as pneumatic press brakes and manual mills. Weldinginstruction includes learning the basics of gas tungsten arc welding(TIG), gas metal arc welding (MIG) and shieldedmetal arc welding (Stick). These skills provide students withopportunities to work with more than 130 chemical manufacturers,refineries and supporting distribution facilities located minutes awayfrom CCISD.
