I found Stafffinders to very professional and prompt in both their interview advice and communications. Stafffinders contacted me three week ago with a vacancy they thought would be of interest and yesterday I was offered the job! I would definitely y recommend Stafffinders to others looking to further their career.
CNC Machinist Jobs
CNC machinist jobs use computer numerically controlled (CNC) machine tools to cut, drill, shape and finish products and components used in the engineering and manufacturing sectors. CNC machinist jobs work chiefly with metals but also deal with wood, composite materials and plastics.
CNC machinist jobs include;
- milling machines
- machines that combine several of these functions
Products include parts for the automotive, power, marine and aerospace industries, and manufacturing and machine tools for the engineering sector. CNC machinist jobs program the CNC machine tool with data taken from technical drawings. Some machines display the section on a screen so that machinists can work out the process visually.
CNC machinist jobs include:
- planning the most efficient sequence of operations for the job
- selecting the appropriate tools for each cut
- selecting the right cutting speeds
- setting tolerances
- positioning the section for each cut
- converting instructions into a numerically-based program for the computer to follow
- checking that work meets quality and technical standards
- routine maintenance of machine tools.
The CNC machines are designed and set to produce large quantities of components to exactly the same specifications. Hand-operated machine tools may be used if small quantities of a product are needed.
A common route for CNC machinist jobs is to train as an apprentice in engineering. CNC machinist jobs will generally need four GCSEs (A-C)/S grades (1-3), such as maths, English, science, engineering, design and technology or appropriate equivalents. Check with training providers for exact entry requirements.
The main job opportunities for CNC machinists occur in mechanical engineering, motor vehicle, aerospace and shipbuilding industries. There are also openings in engineering maintenance, for example, rail transport and power generation.
