Job Description

Reporting to the Operations Manager, he/she will play a critical role to set up and operating a numerically controlled horizontal lathe to perform machining operations.

Key Responsibilities

Prepare Lathes for Operation

  • Before they start the manufacturing process, lathe operators prepare the machines to process the raw materials. To prepare machines, lathe operators adjust specific settings, such as height and width.

Prepare Materials for Fabrication

  • Lathe operators prepare the raw materials for parts manufacturing. This includes ensuring the materials used are the right size. Lathe operators look at blueprints and parts plan to ensure the correct materials are being used.

Operate the Lathe

  • After the machine and materials have been prepared for fabrication, lathe operators run the lathe and other machines in a safe and efficient manner. They are responsible for the proper operation of the machine so parts are manufactured correctly.

Perform Quality Control on Finished Parts

  • Lathe operators perform quality control inspections on all parts and components they fabricate. This includes comparing the finished parts to blueprints and other plans. If parts don’t meet quality standards, lathe operators typically need to re-manufacture them.

Oversee Routine Maintenance

  • Lathe operators are responsible for maintaining all the lathes and other industrial machines they operate. This includes monitoring the lathe’s performance to ensure it is operating properly. If the lathe operator finds any problems with their machines, they are responsible for scheduling maintenance.
