The incumbent will set up, creating programming instructions, adjust and maintain all equipment used in their daily job activities along with maintaining quality and safety standards, keeping records, and maintaining equipment and machining supplies.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities include the following. Other duties may be assigned.

The incumbent is responsible for planning the machining steps by studying blueprints, engineering sketches, interpreting dimensions and tolerances, materials specifications, and machining parameters. If there may be an issue, they discuss part designs with an engineer and\or supervisor as needed to guarantee manufacturability and collaborate to modify designs when existing ones are not feasible. Furthermore they determine the fixtures, attachments and tools necessary to complete jobs according to specifications, and mount them to machine prior to beginning cutting.  Finally they program the machines by entering instructions, including zero and reference points; setting tool registers, offsets, compensation, and conditional switches and the like required.

During the machining of the components, the incumbent will oversee cutting process, make adjustments throughout each job modifying machine speed, tooling and cutting style to ensure precision and accuracy of manufactured parts. Additionally, the incumbent is diligent in catching mistakes as they happen and take necessary measures to eliminate errors. Furthermore, to assure good machine performance, they supervise machine temperatures, ensure that machine has adequate warm-up and cool-down time between jobs and replaces coolant periodically. Upon completion, the incumbent inspects all finished components for accuracy and uniformity to ensure part quality.

Furthermore, the incumbent will maintains safe operations by adhering to safety procedures and regulations and perform daily, weekly and monthly maintenance tasks to ensure machine longevity, including lubrication, cleaning and tool replacement. Finally the incumbent is also responsible for such other duties as management may assign to the position from time to time.

Education, Experience and Qualifications

Requires a minimum of high school diploma or equivalent; minimum 3 years’ experience demonstrating a broad understanding in setting up, programming (G Code), troubleshooting, and operating CNC and manual lathes and milling machines; and comfortable using tools and maintaining machinery. Must have solid grasp of machining practices and various metal characteristics.  Must be able to read blue prints, interpret dimensioning, and use various precision measuring equipment to validate quality. Knowledge of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and trigonometry, and their application is a requirement. Knowledge and use of CAM software is a plus.

Work Environment

Incumbent basically works alone in a moderate environment, but Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is required (safety glasses, shoes, gloves, etc.). Noise levels may be distracting, but are within acceptable limits. A high level of accuracy is required in this position.
