TITANS of CNC

fter almost losing his company in 2008 because of the
economic downturn, owner
Titan Gilroy decided to not only jump
into aerospace and medical industry
manufacturing, but to dedicate himself
to manufacturing education. Titan relishes teaching others how to compete
and win at the business of CNC'ing
specialized parts.
Gilroy's company TITANS of
CNC has become a launch pad of
opportunity for many northern Californians for both jobs and training in highly
coveted machining skills.
TITANS of CNC produces some
of the most impressive aerospace and
medical industry parts that the planet
has ever seen. For aerospace they use
solid modeling and the most advanced
CAD and CAM software available on
the market. For the medical industry
they produce products with thin walls,
tight tolerances and intersecting intricate features ... all done in material that
expands and contracts from the heat in
a human hand.
On the training side of things,
Titan started his own manufacturing TV
Series, that currently airs on MAVTV.
The first two seasons allowed him
to feature the largest companies in
America. Through those episodes Titan
shared how those companies competed
on a global scale, taking into account

every centimeter of machined products
and every penny of cost and profit.
He also toured the largest industrial
schools in the nation. While speaking
to schools, educators, students, and
employers, he realized that we had
a huge problem in California and the
country as a whole. Nobody was talking about a disastrous void in high-level teaching of CNC machining.
Today the industry runs multi-axis, sub-spindle, automated CNC machines. And yet, many industry leaders
still teach students like they did years
ago, using prehistoric methods. There
are very limited curriculums for truly
advanced multi-axis CNC education.
Titan decided to tackle the issue
head on. For his 3rd season of the TV
show "TITANS of CNC" he designed
and built his own version of an Advanced CNC & Technology School
right inside San Quentin prison and
taught students how to manufacture
parts in just 6 weeks. This means designing in CAD, programming in CAM,
and machining a part to completion on
a CNC machine - all of which traditionally take two years to teach.
You can find the TITANS of CNC:
Academy at academy.titansofcnc.com.
The curriculum is now being used by
more than 700 educators across the
nation and has more than 17,000 users.
Sacramento-Area schools like Rocklin
