Skilled CNC Turner

FGL Precision is recruiting a fully trained and experienced CNC Turner with excellent programming, setting and operating skills. The ideal candidate will be expected to produce finished components using customers’ drawings or step files. The work will require 100% inspection prior to final inspection by the QA team.

The candidate will need to demonstrate high standards of precision and efficiency, and set an example to the small team of CNC turners that they will be helping to mentor.

Ideally the candidate will have experience of the Aerospace sector and of working to fine limit tolerances (smaller than .01mm), using both ferrous and non-ferrous materials such as aluminium, stainless steel, brass, mild steel and to a lesser extent, exotic materials such as titanium.

FGL Precision is AS9100/ISO9001 approved so this senior role involves taking full responsibility for ensuring production and quality targets are met.

The machines used on a daily basis are –

  • Hitachi Seiki HT23, CMZ TL20 (with live tooling)
  • Mori Seiki AL2 CNC
  • Hardinge Cobra types 42 and 51

The role is demanding so the competitive remuneration package on offer includes an excellent pension scheme, life assurance, generous holiday entitlement, flexible working hours if needed, and of course a good working environment and friendly supportive staff.

If you have the skills and experience and want to work for a company that values your expertise, we’d like to hear from you.
