Machinist IV

Provides leadership to other machinists. Schedules production according to work priorities, including estimating job completion time. Estimates rates and routing methods. Collaborates with quality, sales, engineering, and scheduling departments to ensure coordination. Performs complex machine set-ups, operation, tool changes, and adjustments for several types of machines, including multi-axis CNCs. Performs multi-tool set-ups. Selects the appropriate machine and tooling for the part and determines how the job should be run based on the blueprint. Knows which tools can be substituted for others, the proper speeds and feeds associated with each tool, and the different grades and geometry of each tool and how these apply to each job. Visualizes and creates special tooling for certain needs. Adjusts feeds and speeds for optimal performance. In multiple jobs, uses same tooling, and adjusts settings for one job without damaging another job. Writes, edits, and troubleshoots CNC programs. As necessary, uses CAD/CAM to check programs after errors are found. Saves offsets and programs for later reuse.
