Sets-ups and operates a variety of machine tools to produce precision parts and instruments at CNC work centers. Uses computer numerically controlled (CNC) machines to cut and shape precision products, such as machine parts and compressors. Carefully plans and prepares machining operation by reviewing three-dimensional computer aided/automated design (CAD) blueprints of the part. Calculates exact placement to cut work-piece and determines the appropriate speed to feed metal into machine.
