Work shifts typically start 6:00 am with a 30 minute meal break.  It is expected that personnel be willing to work night shifts and weekends, if needed.
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).
  • Program mills and lathes with MasterCam, by entering instructions, including zero and reference points; setting tool registers, offsets, compensation, conditional switches; calculating requirements, including basic math, geometry, and trigonometry.
  • Proofing written programs
  • Set-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; trimming heads.
  • Verifies settings by measuring positions, first-run part, and sample work pieces; 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.
  • Maintains safe operations by adhering to safety procedures and regulations.
  • Maintains equipment by completing preventive maintenance requirements; following manufacturer's instructions; troubleshooting malfunctions; calling for repairs.
    • Maintains continuity among work shifts when multiple shifts are in place.
    • Work with engineering and other composite technicians to execute projects.
    • Understand and comply with expectations and requirements dictated by project schedules, travelers, task orders, work instructions, specs, and/or drawings.
    • Monitor and audit travelers/planning to ensure that they are properly completed.

  • Functional and technical skills required for CNC machining and GD&T tasks. This would include the usage of measuring devices.
  • Capable of operating manual machines (mills and lathes)
  • Applied knowledge of tolerances and blueprint reading.
  • Possess strong mechanical aptitude required for mechanical assemblies and ability to use shop aides/fixtures/jigs to mitigate potential assembly/tolerance stack-up risks.
  • Ability to understand and maintain compliance with various quality management systems (AS9100, NADCAP, Swift, external/customer)
  • Strong attention to detail
  • Ability to work independently and within a team setting as required.
  • High School diploma or GED.
  • Effective verbal and written communication.
  • A US Person (Resident Alien or US Citizen) per ITAR requirements.
