We are seeking an experienced and talented CNC Machinist to join our team. The CNC machinists are responsible for setting up the CNC machinery for product runs. This includes ensuring the machine has the correct computer program, is in the right position, has power, and is performing correctly. CNC machinists are also responsible for checking the product made by the machine and ensuring it meets all quality specifications.
Essential Duties and Responsibilities:
● Plans machining by studying work orders, blueprints, engineering plans, materials,
specifications, orthographic drawings, reference planes, locations of surfaces, and machining parameters; interpreting geometric dimensions and tolerances (GD&T).
● Programs mills and lathes by entering instructions, including zero and reference points; setting tool registers, offsets, compensation, and conditional switches; calculating requirements, including basic math, geometry, and trigonometry; proving part programs.
● Sets-up mills and lathes by installing and adjusting three- and four-jaw chucks, tools,
attachments, collets, bushings, cams, gears, stops, and stock pushers; indicating vices; trammingheads.
● Loads feed mechanism by lifting stock into position.
● Verifies settings by measuring positions, first-run part, and sample workpieces; adhering to international standards.
● Maintains specifications by observing drilling, grooving, and cutting, including turning, facing, knurling, and thread chasing operations; taking measurements; detecting malfunctions; troubleshooting processes; adjusting and reprogramming controls; sharpening and replacing worn tools; adhering to quality assurance procedures and processes.
Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:
● Must possess basic math skills to include but not limited to adding, subtracting, multiplication, division, geometry, and algebra for the purpose of calculating material fabrication.
● Intermediate knowledge and application of precision measuring instruments and the application of such instruments. Instruments should include but not limited to calipers, ID and OD micrometers, depth, gauges, indicators, and scales.
● Intermediate knowledge of reading drawings and specifications with an intermediate
understanding of geometric tolerance and dimensions.
● Intermediate knowledge of tool holders, cutting tools, boring bars, fixtures, inserts, and other accessories used on various machines. Be able to sets-up mills and lathes by installing and adjusting three- and four-jaw chucks, tools, attachments, collets, bushings, cams, gears, stops, and stock pushers; indicating vices; tramming heads.
● Be able to program mills and lathes by entering instructions, including zero and reference points; setting tool registers, offsets, compensation, and conditional switches; calculating requirements, including basic math, geometry, and trigonometry; proving part programs.
● Must be adaptable to a changing work environment, competing demands and is able to deal with frequent change, delays, or unexpected events.
● Good work ethic and flexibility to work overtime and shift is a must.
● Must be able to work in a fast-paced environment and meet deadlines, and stand for a long period of time.
● Must be able to contribute to continuous improvement techniques to improve output, quality, cost, and delivery.
