Assesses specifications, lays out metal stock, prepares and operates machine tools, and fits and assembles parts to fabricate and repair metalworking dies, cutting tools, jigs and fixtures, gauges, and machinists' hand tools, applying knowledge of tool and die design and construction, shop mathematics, metal properties, and layout, machining, and assembly procedures. Studies specifications, such as blueprints, sketches, models, or descriptions, and visualizes product to determine materials required and machines to be used to fabricate parts. Computes dimensions, plans layout, and determines assembly method and sequence of operations. Measures, marks, and scribes metal stock for machining. Sets up and operates machine tools, such as lathes, milling machines, shapers, and grinders, to machine parts, and verifies conformance of machined parts to specifications. Lifts machined parts manually or using hoist, and positions and secures parts on surface plate or worktable, using devices, such as vises, V-blocks, and angle plates. Smoothes flat and contoured surfaces, using scrapers, abrasive stones, and power grinders, and fits and assembles parts together and into assemblies and mechanisms, using hand tools. Verifies dimensions, alignments, and clearances, using measuring instruments, such as dial indicators, gauge blocks, thickness gauges, and micrometers. Heat-treats tools or parts. May connect wiring and hydraulic lines to install electrical and hydraulic components. May examine standard or previously used dies, tools, and jigs and fixtures, and recommend design modifications regarding construction and function of part. May develop specifications from general descriptions for specialty tools and draw or sketch design of product. May specialize in repair work.
Requires a high school diploma/GED and two (2) years previous on-the-job maintenance experience. On the job maintenance experience means that hands on experience has been obtained in a manufacturing environment similar to the Largo operation. Completion of Formal apprenticeship or equivalent training and experience will enhance proficiency.
Proficiency in any two and a general knowledge of the remaining fields as a minimum requirement: mechanical, electrical, pneumatics/hydraulics, electronic, facility maintenance, and welding. Proficiency is defined to mean: requires minimal supervision, displays quality workmanship, completes assignments in prescribed time frame, follows safety principles, properly selects and utilizes tools and materials and maintains levels of satisfactory housekeeping.
Ability to organize work and meet deadlines. Strong verbal and written communication skills.
Ability to write routine reports and correspondence. Ability to add, subtract, multiply, and divide in all units of measure, using whole numbers, common fractions, and decimals. Ability to read, communicate and interpret documents such as safety rules, operating and maintenance instructions, procedure manuals, blueprints and engineering drawings in the English Language.
Ability to read and interpret documents such as safety rules, operating and maintenance instructions, and procedure manuals.
Excellent communication & interpersonal skills and demonstrates an attention to detail.
