This position requires the technical skills necessary to be responsible for assisting in maintaining the quality of the precision machined parts and assemblies produced in our facility.


Our company utilizes multiple spindle screw machines, CNC machines, as well as high production mills and drills for secondary operations.  This machinery is mechanically complex and performs numerous metal cutting operations simultaneously.  Steel, brass, aluminum, and stainless steel bar stock is machined into various part configurations on a high-volume basis.

This position will primarily be responsible for first piece and in process inspection of components and products in our production areas and identifying defects and deviations from design plans before parts are released to the next step of manufacturing or for shipping to the customer.  The Quality Control Inspector will work closely with machine operators to verify part acceptability, identifying and preventing potential problems before they arise, and instruct on measurement methods as required.  The inspector will also be responsible for inspection of incoming raw material and subcontracted parts, and other duties as assigned.

Since we already have a full-time parts inspector, there may not be enough inspection work for two full-time inspectors on a daily basis. Therefore, this position will also assist the shipping department. Duties will include, but are not limited to, receiving incoming parts from subcontractors, verifying part counts, pulling parts for assembly or shipping; and assembling and packing orders for shipment, as needed.%MCEPASTEBIN%
