Precision machining is the process of designing, producing, and finishing products and parts, usually metal, that are used in the assembly of larger products like cars or machines. Precision machining and manufacturing has become much more automated today because of advancements in technology.  Career paths now require more technical skills and knowledge, but are in very high-demand.

Machinists set-up and operate a variety of computer and mechanically controlled machine tools to produce precision metal parts, instruments, and tools. This usually involves the use of computer numerical controlled machines, or CNC, that control the movement of cutters, grinders, or finishing tools that create metal parts.
