CNC Machinist

CNC Machinist

Responsibilities include converting of raw materials to a finished product. Due to the size and complexity of parts, close tolerances, and the time required to manufacture a single part, the machinist has little room for error. The CNC machinist is responsible for all operations performed on the assigned work station, including work set-up, tooling, operations, and completion of required documentation.


• Ensure efficiency and quality in CNC machining processes.

• Set up for designated operation, including preparation of fixtures, placement of part, proper work holding, verification of tooling set-up, proper loading of tooling, and pre-machining operations.

• Program and operate CNC machines by entering instructions including zero and reference points; set tool registers offsets, compensation, and conditional switches; calculate requirement including basic math, geometry, and trigonometry; load proving part programs.

• Monitor machine operations to include monitoring machining sequences consistent with CNC programming, observing machine for proper functioning and respond immediately to developing situations to preserve machine and part integrity.

• Certified to operate cranes up to 50 Tons.

• Perform and/or verify completion of first-article inspection on all jobs and indicate such on production documentation.

• Review quality issues with quality assurance, manufacturing support, and engineering to resolve quality issues and take corrective actions as required.

• Ensure performance goals are established and met for scrap/rework, labor efficiencies, and on time deliveries.

• Apply basic knowledge of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) in accordance with ASME Y14.5M:1994.

• Ensure quality control in accordance with the company ISO-9001:2008 Quality Assurance System (QAS).
