PAY RANGE: $18.00 – $30.00 (depending on experience)
Set-up and operate single and/or multiple spindle machines. Monitor and control the quality of machining processes by utilizing process control tools such as; control charts and statistical capability information. Participate in continuous improvement activities that result in reducing variation and waste in the manufacturing process. Using a specified training format, work closely in training new machinists. Maintain the production processes and work within the expected efficiencies that are established for the product line.
DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
- Read part prints and job orders for all product specifications, i.e., dimensions, tolerances, inspection, number of parts to be machined and tooling instructions such as; cutting speeds, feed rates, depth of cuts, and cutting tools required.
- Use machine controls to cycle machine through; production operations, set-up, adjusting tool positions, and changing tools. Also to review machine operating criteria such as cycle time and spindle rpm.
- Install specified collets, bushings, and stock pushers onto stock feeding mechanism and loads bar stock into feeding mechanism.
- Install and adjust specified cams, gears and stops to control stock and tool movements at each station.
- Change, position and secure tools in tool holders by utilizing tool monitoring system and presetting equipment.
- Perform first piece sample inspection according to the operation control plan. By utilizing qualified measuring devices, the machinist monitors the part dimensions through continuous checking of part features and process control tools (such as SPC).
- Maintain all lubricants and coolants on the machine that are used in daily operation.
- Keep work area clean.
- Participate in continuous improvement activities and use the accepted tools, such as — brainstorming, C&E, tool tryout sheets.
