Why Computerized Manufacturing?
Have you heard this lately, “America doesn’t make anything anymore!” Yet the U.S. has a long and proud history of invention and production. Computer Numerical Control (CNC) manufacturing assisted by the high precision Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) and Computer Aided Drafting (CAD)/Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) technology, brings innovation to market faster than ever. For high school graduates, career changers, and seasoned machinists, opportunities to learn new skills and find rewarding work in CNC manufacturing are closer than you think. While most CNC positions do not require a college degree, specialized training provides a leg up.
What is Computerized Manufacturing?
Computer controlled machines create the vast majority of consumer products, from cars and iPods, to toothbrushes and televisions. Computerized Manufacturing is also known as CNC, Computer Numerical Control. Examples of machines utilizing CNC include milling and turning centers, coordinate measuring machines (CMM), EDMs, laser machines, and others.
BIR: A Leader in CNC Training
BIR Training Center is the Midwest’s leader in Computerized Manufacturing training since 1993, offering instruction in CNC machining, part programming, CMM precision inspection and measurement, and CAD/CAM technology including MasterCAM X6, GeoPath, and MazaCAM.
With three campuses across Chicago, CAD/CAM technology equipped labs, a squeaky-clean machine shop with CNC HAAS turning and Mazak milling centers, Shop Floor CMM from Brown & Sharpe, flexible scheduling, and instructors who come from the field — the opportunities to learn CNC & CAD/CAM are closer than you think. Employers turn to BIR Training Center when they need to train their workforce in practical and useful blueprint, quality control, CNC machining, part programming, and CAD/CAM skills.
When local manufacturers are looking to fill CNC positions, they turn to BIR. BIR offers three certificate programs in Computerized Manufacturing:
Careers in Computerized Manufacturing (CNC)
The demand for programmers and operators of Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machines is strong today and is expected to grow. BIR prepares students for employment as CNC, CMM, and CAD/CAM Operators, Set-up Personnel and Programmers. Computerized manufacturing provides attractive career opportunities for both women and men. You do not need any previous computer or machining skills to begin your CNC training. You do need the desire to learn and the drive to succeed. BIR will provide the rest.
