Students in the metal fabrication program alternate instruction between sheet metal fabrication and welding thereby developing a complete set of metal working skills. Students learn the theory in the classroom and apply those lessons in the shop. Sheet metal training includes layout, fabrication and installation of duct, fittings, and accessories associated with heating and ventilation systems. Instruction is given in the major welding processes of SMAW, GMAW, and GTAW. Cutting processes include oxy-acetylene, CNC plasma and hand-held plasma as well as various mechanical cutting methods. Students are trained in the safe and proper use of welders, hydraulic press brake and shear, slip rolls, forming machines, and hand brakes. Our facility includes a full sheet metal shop and 18 individual welding stations, complete with direct capture exhaust. The metal fabrication department will help students develop the skills and work ethic needed to be successful whether they decide to enter the workforce after graduation or pursue further education.
McCann Technical School gave me the foundational knowledge to build a successful manufacturing and supply chain leadership career. It is a great advantage understanding the work being performed and having a personal relationship with those doing it.John Bishop
