The Manufacturing Manager also helps diagnose any customer concerns brought to their attention by the customer service department, and help implement new products and designs from the company’s development department(s).
An Engineer evaluates manufacturing processes by designing and conducting research programs, applying knowledge of product design, fabrication, assembly, tooling, and materials, conferring with equipment vendors, and soliciting observations from operators.
CNC Machinist/Programmers work with computer numeric controlled (CNC) heavy machinery from setup to operation to produce parts and tools from metal, plastic, or other materials. Computer numeric controlled equipment is precision machinery that cuts, grinds, or drills into the material.
Skilled Machine Operator
A skilled Machine Operator operates high speed machine tools for fabricating or manufacturing parts or putting parts together. There are a number of machines that these professionals may use including drills, large scale sewing machines, milling machines, industrial printers and heavy machines like forklifts and cranes.
Quality Control individuals visually inspect or manually test products, before, during or after the manufacturing process. They may also run and monitor inspection equipment, as well as record and analyze quality data.
Welder/Fabricators use hand-welding or flame-cutting equipment to weld or join metal components or to fill holes, indentations, or seams of fabricated metal products.
Maintenance Mechanics/Technicians ensure operation of machinery and mechanical equipment by completing preventive maintenance requirements on engines, motors, pneumatic tools, conveyor systems, and production machines. They follow diagrams, sketches, operations manuals, manufacturer’s instructions, and engineering specifications to determine troubleshooting malfunctions.
