machinist operator

CIP 48.0503.02

Machine operators are responsible for producing precision machined parts. They measure parts with precision tools in order to make sure certain parts meet predetermined quality and cosmetic standards. When parts have passed inspection, the parts go on to the next phase of production. Machine operators are expected to meet production quotas. The level of documentation required varies, depending on the degree of precision needed for the finished product. Machine operators also need to keep track of the number of units that are scrapped due to various errors.
