MANUAL MILLER

HOURS/SHIFTS:   3 Shift (rotating)      

My client, a company with a long history and bright future based in Gloucester are seeking experienced Manual Miller to work in their soon to be refurbished centre of excellence. You will be a key part of a transforming business which is undergoing positive change. Easily accessible to bus routes and trains into Gloucester. 

Manual Miller Summary:

Skilled conventional miller required to work on a variety of production machinery. While the role is primarily to set and run turret and bed mills, experience on centre lathes is also required. Knowledge of using Prototrak controls will be advantageous.

The production operative will work safely on a number of machines or processes and will be expected to meet set production and quality targets on a daily basis.

Manual Miller Skill and role focus:

  • Conventional miller should be a formally qualified apprentice with at least 3-5 years of experience of working in a production environment. If they are not apprentice qualified, then they should be time served with about 5-7 years of experience of working on manual milling machines (turret mills or bed mills) (essential) in a production environment.
  • Candidates should be able to setup and machine a range of features on parts such as tapers, slots, radiused grooves to name a few. They should have the ability to consider methods to setup and clamp parts to achieve desired features.
  • Experience of working within a production environment. They must be confident in their abilities to calculate angles, radii etc to meet customer drawing features. Likewise, the ability to design and where necessary make tooling to aid in the machining of specific features will be highly advantageous.
  • Knowledge of machining composite materials (desirable).The parts will generally be machined from composite materials.
  • The operator will use XYZ turret mills and XYZ Prototrak bed mill primarily and will also need to use radial arm drills.
  • Operators self-inspect their work with operation First Off’s having a secondary inspection performed by a fellow operator before being signed off. As such, it is expected that skilled operators will be confident in the use of standard hand-held inspection equipment with knowledge of CMM and Shadowgraph use considered an advantage.
  • While all the above skills will form the basis of their role, they will need to learn how to machine our products and understand the possible variations within the materials and how each react differently to the way they are machined. This can only come through spending time with experienced operators and then gaining experience on the job.
  • Experience of working in a target driven environment.
  • Experience of working on centre lathes (desirable)
  • Furthermore, as skilled machinists it is expected that they will be able to read and interpret engineering drawings with a good understanding of the related G,D & T symbols and how they apply to the part.
