Due to continued business growth, our client, who provide a range of specialist services to the worldwide aerospace industry are looking to recruit an ambitious and motivated CNC Programmer/Setter/Operator with experience in programming using Delcam (Essential) on an on-going contract to work as part of a determined and professional team, producing high-value 1-off components. Programming and machining tasks are varied and interesting, ranging from conventional 3-axis machining to complex 3D surfaces using 5-axis machining techniques.
Typical projects include; producing scaled-down military and civilian aircraft models, comprising over 100 parts, which are assembled together and used as highly accurate forces/pressures measuring devices within the high-speed (transonic) wind tunnel on site.
As a CNC Programmer/Setter/Operator, your responsibilities will include:
* Off-line ECS programming using Delcam Powermill and Powershape (importing geometry, modelling supports/fixtures, establishing tooling and clamping sequences, creating optimum cutter paths, determining speeds and feeds, posting programs).
* Raise "program master record" (PMR) sheets as instructions on how to manufacture the part.
* Prepare and operate 3-, 4- and 5-axis CNC milling machines (new machining centres arriving in phases throughout the next year).
* Understand the task at hand by reading engineering drawings, and achieve the desired result by following machining instructions (PMR sheets).
* Prepare and load raw materials (high-grade steels, aluminium) and parts onto the machines.
* Supervise the machines while they execute the tasks, making any necessary adjustments to produce a better result.
* Inspect and measure finished products and compare to drawing dimensions/tolerances.
* Record data of machining operations on Route Cards.
* The ideal applicant will be a time served, fully skilled engineer/toolmaker in the role of a CNC Programmer/Setter/Operator.
Essential skills are:
* Proficient in the use of Delcam Powermill
* The ability to interpret engineering drawings and CAD models.
* Competent and confident to carry out off-line ECS programming.
* Competent and confident to set and operate 3- and 4-axis vertical CNC milling machines.
* Online programming experience, to improve machining performance.
* Self-motivated and keen to develop engineering skills to full potential.
Desirable skills:
* Proficient in the use of Delcam Powermill and Powershape.
* Proficient to set and operate 5-axis vertical milling machines (on-the-job training will be provided, where timescales permit).
This is an exciting opportunity for the right person to be part of a successful and established precision manufacturing team operating in a world-class facility. In return, we offer a competitive salary and a comprehensive benefits package
