  • Level 3 Diploma in Machining (Development Knowledge)
Useful information

Specific Specialist Knowledge:

  • understand mathematical techniques, formula and calculation involved in the machining processes such as speeds and feeds, calculating angles/tapers, material removal
  • understand the practical and theoretical uses of the machines used, and their applications.
  • understand the work-holding devices, cutting tools, and setting up procedures, in adequate depth to provide a sound basis for carrying out the activities, correcting faults and ensuring the work output is to the required specification

Specific Specialist Skills:

  • read and interpret relevant data and documentation used to produce machined components
  • determine the most efficient and effective approach to machine the component using a range of tools, machining process and Techniques
  • select and set up the correct tooling and work holding devices
  • set and adjust the machine operating parameters to produce the work pieces to the required specification. This will involve setting feeds and speeds for roughing and finishing operations
  • select and use a range of measuring and testing equipment to check components are to the required quality and accuracy
  • produce complex and specialist components as a one off test and trial work piece and/or producing components in small or large batches
