Computer numerically controlled (CNC) machinists are responsible for operating machine tools to create metallic pieces. They set up industrial machinery and oversee its functioning. CNC machinists must be able to interpret and use blueprints for specific piece design, as well as calibrate equipment to follow product specifications. They also follow strict company and industry safety regulations, as well as a tightly controlled sequence of functions.
Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) Machinist Tasks
Retest and rewrite CNC programs to ensure proper functioning.
Determine the sequence of machine operations and develop programs that run the machine tools.
