Mechanical Manufacturing

Pakistan Industrial Technical Assistance Centre recognises that Skills and knowledge are the driving forces of economic growth and social development of any country. They have become even more important given the increasing pace of globalisation and technological advancement that is taking place in the world. Countries with higher and better levels of skills adjust more effectively to the challenges and opportunities of globalisation. PITAC provides short term intensive training courses in a number of different fields and disciplines, these are designed such that the supply-side responses are perpetually in sync with the demand side impulses both from domestic engineering environments as well as international markets.Thus our courses are relevant and in tune with the demands of the marketplace and our approach is one of practical’s, on the job training and usage of the latest machinery and software. Our AutoCAD courses are some of the most popular in Lahore today and regularly oversubscribed. For further information contact training@pitac.gov.pk , or call 042-99230701.

Introduction of CNC Milling:

Today a wide range of industries require CNC milling professionals to program, operate and keep sophisticated milling machines running in an efficient and reliable way. Large enterprises such as automobile, medium-sized enterprises, such as mould making and small enterprises on maintenance field are some of many examples where the CNC milling professional plays a key role to the success of metalwork industry.
To achieve the finished part the CNC Milling professionals undertake a sequence of essentials activities:

  • Interpret engineering drawings and follow the specification.
  • Generate a program (logical, process plan) with a CAD/CAM system and/or G-code.
  • Set-up the tooling, work holding device, and work piece on the CNC machining centre.
  • Manipulate cutting conditions, based on the properties of metal and tooling.
  • Operate, inspect and maintain the accuracy of dimensions within the tolerances (between 0.02 – 0.04 mm).
  • Optimise the process taking into account the production type: large quantities of one part, small batches or one-of-a-kind items.
