Metal cutting (Mechanical engineering)

Industry overview

  • Metal cutting is a mechanical processing process that creates mechanical parts and products with the shape and size of surface gloss … according to technical requirements from the original workpiece by cutting layers. metal in the form of chips. This work can be done by hand or by machine. This is a profession that is commonly trained in vocational schools. After completing this profession, learners will be able to perform skills such as Turning, Milling, Planing, Grinding, Drilling, Stripping, programming and machining on lathe – CNC milling to process details and products.</li >
