Description: Purpose and Scope of Job:
Setup and operation of multi-axis CNC machines (lathes; mills horizontal and vertical – including multi-pallet machining centers; grinders; broaches; Gear generation & testing equipment).
Set up and operation of manual and semi-automatic lathes, mills, grinders, tool grinders, drills, broaches, gear hobbers, shears, etc.
Essential Functions (other duties may be assigned):
Set up, adjust, and operate machine tools in order to perform precision machining operations while holding close tolerance dimensions with minimal assistance.
Read & interpret blueprints both imperial and metric standards.
Calculate dimensions and tolerances using knowledge of mathematics (geometry, trigonometry) and part drawings / standards.
Test cut / dry run CNC programs prior to production runs. Machine parts correctly with only set up documentation and part drawing documentation.
Follow Process Sheets, Process Maps, Standard Operating Procedures and Poka-Yoke systems implemented by Manufacturing Engineering and Shop management to generate predetermined production volumes, while ensuring best quality and lead times.
Use measuring gauges including micrometers, calipers, height gauge, depth gauge, bore gauges, Mahr gages, etc. to inspect manufactured parts, in order to ensure adherence to drawing tolerances.
Ensure adherence to routed hours and target efficiencies for production.
Provide feedback on equipment, tooling, jigs, fixtures, and work holding solutions to reduce setup times and eliminate rework. Recommend modifications for improved efficiency in assigned areas.
Perform daily cleaning and light maintenance tasks on machinery.
Work closely with Machine shop supervisors, quality assurance, and maintenance personnel to proactively prevent problems with machining cells and tooling/fixtures, and to identify ways to improve efficiency, cost, layout, and safety. Machine prototype parts with some assistance.
Ensure all manufacturing safety & regulatory policies and procedures are implemented and maintained at all times. Actively champion & maintain a culture of 5S (Sort, Set and Order, Shine, Standardize and Sustain) in the machine shop.
Train other operators.
Be an active resource in time studies to analyze processes & validate recommended process changes.
Be a resource to other company projects.
Take part in brainstorming sessions and kaizen events designed to improve efficiency, costs and lead time.
Proficiency in setup, operation, & basic maintenance of multi-axis CNC lathes; mills horizontal and vertical – including multipallet machining centers; grinders; boring machines; broaches; Gear generation & testing equipment.
Proficiency in setup, operation, & basic maintenance of Manual lathes, mills, grinders, tool grinders, drills, broaches, shears, gear hobber, band saw.
Exposure to technologies such as 4 / 5 Axis machining, 5-Sided machining, Bar-fed turning, and/or multitasking machines.
Ability to set up, adjust and operate all machine tools in order to perform precision machining operations while holding very close tolerances, and with minimal assistance.
Good understanding of Tooling / Jig & Fixture design for machining operations.
Ability to read & understand complex Engineering drawings/Blueprints; excellent grasp of GD & T.
Excellent grasp of mathematics (including geometry & trigonometry), and good understanding of mechanical systems. Proven competency in calculating complex dimensions and tight tolerances (sub-micron positional dimensions, angles, patterns, parallelism, perpendicularity, concentricity, taper) using knowledge of mathematics (geometry, trigonometry) and part drawings / standards.
Good understanding of Metallurgy (focus on Cast iron Grey cast & Ductile iron; Steel, Stainless Steel 304/316/416). Complete understanding of common gauges & measuring instruments (gauge blocks, micrometers, calipers, height gauge, depth gauge, bore gauges, Mahr gages, etc.).
Experience in accurately diagnosing tool wear by visual inspection or by listening to the process, and in making necessary adjustments to control the process.
Knowledge of tool setting systems.
Basic understanding of DNC control for CNC programs and Machine monitoring systems desired but not essential. Ability to setup & operate multiple CNC machine tools simultaneously (for proven processes)
Additional Skills & Qualifications: Expertise & experience in using common measuring instruments (micrometers, calipers, height/depth/bore gauges,) and tool pre-setters. Expertise in reading & interpreting complex drawings & blueprints in both imperial and metric standards. Expertise in
