Computer controlled machines create the vast majority of consumer products, from
cars and boats, to toothbrushes and electronic devices. Examples of
sophisticated computer controlled machines utilized in computerized
manufacturing include Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Mills and Lathes, Robots,
Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMM), 3D Printers, and Laser Machines, among
BIR Training Center is the Midwest’s leader in Computerized Manufacturing training since 1993. We offer instruction in CNC machining and part programming, CMM precision inspection and measurement, Computer Aided Drafting (CAD)/Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM), Robot Automation and more. With five locations across Chicago, the opportunities to learn CNC, CMM, CAD/CAM, and Robotics are closer than you think.
The demand for programmers and operators of Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC)
and robotic equipment is strong today and is expected to grow. BIR prepares
students for employment as CNC, CMM, Robotic, and CAD/CAM Operators, Set-up
Personnel, and Programmers. Computerized Manufacturing and Robotics provides
attractive career opportunities for both women and men.
