CNC Machinist – 1st shfit
Job Title: CNC Operator
Location: Omaha, NE
In this role as a CNC Operator, your main responsibilities will include managing daily production, scheduling, and operating both CNC and conventional machinery. You will have the opportunity to work with various materials and components, as well as handle special setups for customized projects. The CNC Operator's duties involve setting up and running computer numerical controlled (CNC) vertical machining centers, CNC lathes, and 4-axis controllers to produce precise metallic and non-metallic parts by performing the following tasks.
· Review, analyze, and accurately interpret blueprints, sketches, drawings, manuals, specifications, or sample parts to determine dimensions, tolerances, sequences of operations, and setup requirements for finished workpieces or parts.
· Create, adjust, or modify CNC programs manually or with Computer Aided Machining software (CAM).
· Measure, mark, and confirm the specification dimensions and reference points on materials or workpieces as guides for subsequent machining.
· Select, align, and secure holding fixtures, cutting tools, attachments, accessories, and materials on machines such as mills, lathes, and drill presses.
· Calculate and set machine controls to regulate machining factors such as speeds, feeds, coolant flow, depth and angle of cut. Alternatively, enter commands to retrieve, input, or edit computerized machine control media.
· Start, observe, and monitor machine operation to identify malfunctions, tool or machine collisions, out-of-tolerance machining, and adjust machine controls or control media accordingly.
· Verify the conformance of finished workpieces to specifications by examining drawings, fit or function of a part, or using precision instruments such as calipers, micrometers, height gauges, thread gauges, go-no-go gauges, and other assigned equipment.
· Set up and operate machines for trial runs to verify the accuracy of machine settings or programmed control data, reducing the risk of collisions or damage to machines, tools, or materials.
· Completion of an apprenticeship in Machine/Tool and Die Technology or an associate's degree in a relevant field
· Certification of completion in a Certified Apprenticeship Program
· Proficiency in setting up and operating conventional and CNC equipment
· 3-5 years of experience in a manufacturing environment
· Experience working in a quality-driven environment
