Any manufacturing company or factory with machines requires people to operate, control and maintain those fabricating machines.  That’s what machinists are for. Working from blueprints or supervised by engineers, they set up and operate precision metal grinding, cutting and fabricating machines such as lathes, milling machines, drillers, shapers, boring mills and grinders to create, shape and repair parts and products made from metals, plastics, rubber textiles, fiberglass, titanium and other space age alloys.
