We are custom plastic thermoformers. (please see our website) A
major part of our business is aerospace. Our Heavy Gauge department
makes all sorts of
aircraft cabin interior parts which are thermoformed and require
5-Axis CNC Router trimming to cut the parts out and finish trim. We
are 100% 3D solid model
based and do not do any of the part trimming by hand. All parts are
trimmed on one of our (7) CNC 5-Axis Router Mills.
The ideal candidate would have experience with everything involved
in taking a 3D computer model, using it to program finished part
cutting paths, setting up
and final prep of trimming fixtures, and following through with
making FAI (First Article Inspection) parts for approval.
We have (7) CNC 5-Axis Router Mills. (2) each DMS & Motion Master
with Fagor controls. And (3) Thermwood routers (which have the
We also have a Faro Arm (portable CMM) that we use for orientation
and setup of trimming fixtures and checking trim cuts. So,
experience using a CMM would
be a big plus. We currently have (2) programmers who handle these
duties, and we need to augment our staff to increase production.
So, actual experience
doing the programming and setups is a must and the individual needs
to be able to work independently once they've been acclimated to
our routines and
equipment. This can develop into a department supervisory role for
the right candidate as the other two programmers have their
responsibilities split between
programming, design, and assembly supervision.
