Mechanical fitting is the assembly, installation and maintenance of complex machinery in, for example, power stations or pumps that drive oil into a refinery. If a mechanical component has to be manufactured accurately with a good surface finish to fit or move with another component, then someone who has trained as a machinist will have made or manufactured it. CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machining may also form part of your course.
