Introductory Video

The basic principles of machining technology constitute indispensable knowledge for those interested in specializing in the subject of machining operations using modern CNC machine tools.

The content of this course focuses on two essential themes:

  • presentation of the basic aspects of manufacturing technology (such as material processing, process planning, material removal, and forming operations) and
  • critical analysis of the most commonly used methods of conventional material removal (turning, milling, and drilling) implemented by modern machine shops in Greece and abroad.

The course “Manufacturing Technology Fundamentals” focuses on presenting practical knowledge - derived from our experience of decades in the field – with special focus on the actual production environment and the ongoing evolution of modern manufacturing processes.

The above knowledge is being daily practiced by those who are actively involved in CNC machining and can help them make critical decisions to optimize the production operations related to CNC machining.

The course "Manufacturing Technology Fundamentals" is addressed to:

  • those interested in professionally supporting machine shops and manufacturing industries using modern CNC machining equipment
  • students or graduates of academic faculties of Industrial Engineering and/or Manufacturing Technology, who are interested in integrating their theoretical knowledge with practical and empirical approaches to the field of Manufacturing Technology and CNC machining;
  • employees of production departments who wish to enhance their practical and empirical knowledge in the field of Manufacturing Technology and CNC machining processes.


There are no prerequisites for attending the 'Fundamentals of Manufacturing Technology' course. The course is suitable for anyone, including those with no prior knowledge or experience.
