Huntington North’s Precision Machining Program is a two year program designed to provide students with a basic understanding of the precision machining processes used in industry, manufacturing, maintenance, and repair. The course instructs the student in industrial safety, terminology, tools and machine tools, measurement and layout. Students become familiar with the setup and operation of power saws, drill presses, lathes, milling machines, grinders, and the setup, operation and programming of CNC (computer controlled) machines. The Precision Machining Program is a dual credit opportunity for students through Ivy Tech Community College Northeast.
