This is a small business with the skills and expertise to supply products of exceptional quality and the capability to deliver a service to be proud of.

The job - CNC Turner Setter Operator

Do you have experience of setting and operating CNC lathes?

Would you be interested in working with a small business where quality and customer service is at the centre of everything they do?

Then I'm interested in hearing from you.

Most of the work you'll be carrying out is machining stainless steel and similar but if you have experience of working with other metals, I would welcome your interest too.

Experience of programming from scratch isn't needed, but I am looking for someone who would be confident in program selection, full machine set up, program prove out and first off creation, tool selection, tool adjustments and changes, making minor offset adjustments to programs as needed and checking work against drawings throughout the machining process, along with additional duties as required by the business.

The work you will be doing ranges from small to medium batch sizes. You will need to be familiar with using standard measuring equipment such as verniers, micrometers and depth gauges with minimal supervision too.

The machines you'll be using are 2 axis CNC lathes using Fanuc controls. We're looking for a skilled machinist so if you are skilled at setting and operating CNC turning machinery using Fanuc, Mazatrol, Heidenhain, Fadal, Siemens or similar controls, you may well be just the person we're looking for!
