Leader in aerospace turbine engine repair technology seeks Quality Inspector; Primary responsibilities will include reading and interpreting standards provided in maintenance manuals and other documentation, and also using inspection aids and tools, evaluate part characteristics at receiving inspection, in-process inspection, and final inspection.
Quality Inspector General Responsibilities:
Properly interpret and follow written and verbal inspection instructions accurately.
Using inspection aids, perform visual inspection of turbine engine components and other parts.
Using measuring equipment such as mechanical gages, surface plate layout inspection tools, and coordinate measuring machines, measure and record part characteristics.
Participate in problem-solving and continuous improvement efforts. Position requires constant communication with engineers and other employees to improve results.
Be flexible to meet or exceed productivity expectations.
Move heavy parts (>100 pounds) using cranes, slings, carts, and other handling devices. Move less heavy parts (< 50 pounds) with or without cranes, slings, carts and other handling devices. Follow parts handling requirements.
Work in difficult positions. Stand and/or sit for extended hours.
Quality Inspector Essential Duties:
Visual Inspection - Use magnification, borescopes, scribes, and other visual aids, to perform close visual inspection of turbine engine components and other parts repaired by company.
Correctly identify, measure and record wear, erosion, corrosion, and other defects.
Use standard visual inspection terminology provided.
Dimensional Inspection - Use various mechanical gages to measure dimensions and features of turbine engine parts and other parts repaired by company.
Correctly identify these features and correctly record findings. Tolerances range to 0.000050 inch. Convert Metric/English measuring system when required.
GD&T – Use and correctly interpret geometric tolerancing symbols.
Mechanical Measuring Instruments – Use micrometers, vernier calipers, surface plate gages, dial-indicator gages, custom-made diameter & length gages and set masters, dial bore gages, snap gages, stick gages, gage blocks, thread gages, contour gages, feeler gages, radius gages, and other inspection tools to measure sizes. Check calibration as necessary, at use or at intervals specified by the quality system.
Electronic and Computer Controlled Measuring Instruments – Follow instructions or follow pre-established programs to use FARO arm, electronic gages, and Coordinate Measuring Machine to measure parts. Ensure calibration is maintained during use of electronic and computer controlled measuring instruments.
Documentation Inspection – Check customer purchase orders and other customer documentation, check vendor documentation, and documentation to assist in finding defects and to ensure that all documentation is correct. Report and/or correct documentation errors as prescribed in our system.
Receiving Inspection – Check parts for service conditions that are evaluated for repair requirements.
In-Process Inspection – Check hidden dimensions and hidden features uncovered during the course of repair. Check workmanship and documentation. Check vendor repairs and documentation.
Final Inspection – Where verification is required, inspect to verify that all work performed meets the applicable standard. Check features potentially affected by repair work. Check for correct completion of all documentation and records.
Reporting – Clearly report all findings. Record location, size, acceptability parameters, and other information relevant to the evaluation, acceptance, and correction of findings.
Testing Requirements – Use hardness testers, OHM meters, or other testing equipment to analyze or verify part characteristics and process quality requirements.
Calibration – When assigned or at use, perform calibrations and check equipment frequently to ensure traceable acceptable error level is maintained.
Non-part Inspections – Inspect fixtures, machine parts, and other in-house work.
Work Instructions – Work directly to OEM engine overhaul manual inspection sections and repairs when evaluating parts, as well as using in-house documentation and work instructions.
Repair Development – Participate with Engineers and Quality Engineers in repair development. Evaluate and recommend inspection methods.
Train – Train other inspectors and other employees in proper inspection methods
