Career Opportunities include:

Process Engineers

Process Engineers develop, program, process and manage engineering projects. This position will function as the liaison between departments and customers on design. The ideal candidate has a proven record with project management, strong mechanical or machining background in high precision part production, the ability to troubleshoot and resolve part manufacturability problems, and must be proficient in CAD/CAM, SolidWorks, and Mastercam software. The position will evaluate part designs relative to manufacturability, review drawings and tolerance requirements, process a job from beginning to end, to include project review, CAD design, drawing creation, Cam programming and work traveler creation.

Tool & Die Maker

Tool and die makers are responsible for crafting precision tools and constructing metal forms known as dies which are used in the shaping of metal stamping operations. You will be asked to read blueprints and CAD specifications to plan operations for the fabrication of dies, tools, and assemblies. You will verify dimensions on finished parts to ensure they conform to specifications using dial indicators, gauge blocks, calipers and micrometers. The position will also utilize hand and machine tools to assemble parts of tools and dies and repair and modify gauges, jigs, and dies. In your role you will also diagnose and troubleshoot problems and perform repairs on tools and dies.

CNC Machinist

This position involves experienced machining activities including set-up, operation, programming, and offsets. You will be asked to read blueprints, perform quality checks on parts, and make adjustments as needed to ensure quality standards. Other qualifications include an understanding of Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GD&T). CNC Machinists are a group of people that utilize technical skill, shop floor experience, and creativity on a regular basis.

Laser Automation Technician

A Laser Automation Technician works to set-up and manufacturer metal products using CNC machines with automation. It is their responsibility to keep the laser automation cells operating and ensure efficiency, quality, and consistency. The technician will load programs in the machine, cut proper fixturing, correct laser beam focus, and adjust as needed to produce good quality parts. Knowledge of the production process, ability to read blueprints, and understanding of inspection equipment to confirm part geometry is beneficial.

Quality Inspector

Quality Inspectors are made up of people with varying degrees of experience, but the same self-pride that comes from knowing you've helped ensure each and every part that leaves our doors is up to customer standards. Prior to production runs, a quality inspector will check a "first piece," verifying all dimensions and specifications have been addressed in that machining, assembling, subcontracting, or packaging sequence. We are looking for men and women that have strong skills with inspection equipment (micrometers, calipers, vision systems, etc.), a strong foundation in blueprint reading, Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GD&T), and some experience with Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMMs).
