Sheet Metal Fabricator
Location: Orlando, FL
Duration: 1 year
Designs and fabricates tools and parts in metals and plastics through machining and heat-treating operations. Works from blueprints, drawings, or verbal instructions using math and basic computer skills.
Maintains model shop machinery. May enter data from blueprints or databases into CAD/CAM system, generate numerical control program, and transmits program to machining center. May monitor and verify quality in accordance with statistical process or other control procedures.
Sets up and operates a variety of machine tools such as lathes, milling machines, and precision grinders to make metal parts, mechanisms, tools, or machines to exacting tolerances and dimensions. Interprets blueprints, sketches, and engineering specifications; determines sequence of operations, number of cuts required, and method of setup; uses a variety of machinist's hand tools and precision measuring instruments; makes standard shop computations relating to dimensions of work, tooling, feeds, and speeds; measures, marks, and scribes dimensions and reference points to lay out stock for machining; fits and assembles precision parts into mechanical equipment and determines material, parts, and equipment required. May modify numerically controlled programs on numerically controlled (NC) machines.
May monitor and verify quality in accordance with statistical process or other control procedures. Typically requires completion of a formal apprenticeship or equivalent training and experience.
Technically trained with an extensive sheet metal manufacturing background. Due to the multiple manufacturing disciplines this role requires, the preferred candidate will also possess a background in machining a variety of metals and other materials.
This can be prior experience with CAD/CAM programs, setting up and running CNC machines, or a high level of aptitude in operating manual machining equipment. Experience in final assembly also a plus (installation of pins, inserts, rivets and various aerospace hardware types).
