Tomak’s Machinists, Lead Technicians and Inspectors Constantly Improve Their Knowledge and Understanding Of:

Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T)

Training in this system, which system defines and communicates engineering tolerances, tells Tomak’s manufacturing staff and machines what degree of accuracy and precision is needed on each controlled-feature of a part.

Statistical Process Control (SPC)

By understanding and using this proven method of quality control, which employs statistical methods to monitor and control a process, Tomak helps ensure its processes operate efficiently, and produce more specification-conforming product with less waste (rework or scrap).

CNC Program Manipulation

Tomak’s machinists are consistently being educated about:

  • Interpret engineering drawings and follow the specifications
  • Generate a process and program (logical process plan) with a CAD/CAM system
  • Set-up the tooling, work-holding devices and work-pieces on the CNC milling center
  • Manipulate cutting-conditions, based on the properties of the material and tooling used
  • Operate, inspect and maintain the accuracy of dimensions within the specified tolerances

In-House Educational Classes

To keep abreast of the latest technologies, over 75 percent of Tomak’s members have attended classes conducted by machine tool builders. And, there is ongoing access to on-line training for all aspects of Tomak’s business.

Tomak holds in-house classes conducted by Sinclair Community College and Warren County Career Center faculties.

For courses beyond secondary education, Tomak also offers tuition reimbursement.

Machining more on-spec parts, with increased speed and reduced waste means reduced costs and on-time deliveries.
