Most people who don’t work in the manufacturing industry don’t know what goes on in a machine shop. But they really should, considering most store-bought goods have been either entirely manufactured in a machine shop or have at least one or more parts that’s been created in a machine shop.

To introduce the general public to machining, a reality show began airing on October 24 on MAVTV called “Titan-American Built.” The show centers around Titan Gilroy and his staff, who are tasked with creating parts for major American companies.

With Haas Automation and Autodesk backing the show, viewers see the pressures, the pitfalls and the triumphs all CNC machine shops face. The series shows the shop building parts for different clients each week. One week, they'll be tasked with building a complex rocket part for spaceships, while another week they'll build night vision goggles for the U.S. military, Mr. Gilroy says. 

The show airs Fridays at 7 p.m. PT/ET. For a preview of Titan-American Built, click here
