MACHINE TOOLS INCLUDE:
JOB RESPONSIBILITIES, KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS & ABILITIES:
MACHINIST LEVEL I
The MACHINIST LEVEL I performs machine operations on conventional or CNC machine tools such as lathes, boring mills, milling machines, grinding machines, or shapers:
Read and interpret blueprints, program readouts, and technical directives to determine and obtain materials and cutting tools for the job and to visualize the finished part and critical surfaces, dimensions, and tolerances.
Complete basic machine set ups.
Follow detailed instructions concerning the location of necessary dimensions on blueprints, sequence of machine operations, machine feeds and speeds, tools to be used, alignment processes, and predetermined machined dimensions.
Align parts in the machine according to set methods and given reference points, exercising care to keep material, holding fixtures, and machine stops clear of chips and particles.
Use knowledge of machine operations to recognize defective tooling, improper coolant flow, the need for changing speeds or feeds, machine malfunctions, or obvious dimensional deviations. Correct the problem by adjusting the machine, cutting tool, or fixture or obtain assistance from a higher level machinist.
Use measuring instruments such as internal and external micrometers, vernier height and depth gages, indicators, scales, and various standard or preset snap, plug, bore, or ring gages to achieve and maintain critical dimensions and tolerances during the machining process.
Use measuring instruments to check the accuracy of dimensions and maintain dimensions through the use of fixtures or preset machine stops, depending upon the dimensional tolerances allowed.
Basic knowledge of trade mathematics including plane geometry and the use of trigonometric functions and machinist handbook formulas.
Requires supervision, guidance and training as skills are developed.
