Join the new generation of builders for the U.S. Navy's next-gen submarines.
Whether you’re continuing your education, transitioning from the military or a trained professional, building submarines builds something inside you that you can’t learn anywhere else. Some of the trades submarine builders need people for are additive manufacturing, CNC machining, metrology, non-destructive testing and welding.
WHICH PATH WILL YOU CHOOSE?
Additive manufacturing or additive layer manufacturing is the industrial production name for 3D printing, a computer-controlled process that creates three dimensional objects by depositing materials, usually in layers.
Also called CNC manufacturing, this is a process that uses computer numerical control (CNC) machines, which are tools guided by computer instructions that control the precision of the instruments. Computers take input from CNC machinists, who translate drawings into a programming language called G-code. The CNC machine then dictates to the tool what speed and movement to follow in order to create the desired part or object.
Also known as quality control inspection, metrology is defined as the science of weights and measurement. It has become a highly advanced field with many tools and statistical methods to measure the accuracy and quality of manufactured parts.
Non-destructive testing (NDT) is a testing and analysis technique used by industry to evaluate the properties of a material, component, structure or system for characteristic differences or welding defects and discontinuities without causing damage to the original part. NDT is also known as non-destructive examination, non destructive inspection and nondestructive evaluation.
Welding is a fabrication process whereby two or more parts are fused together by means of heat, pressure or both, forming a join as the parts cool.
