VERTICAL BORER MACHINIST

Posted 21 March by Jobs in Science Easy Apply

My client is looking for a new Vertical Borer Machinist to join their ever-expanding team on a temp to perm basis.

Primary Role

  • Must have experience of setting and operating vertical borers.
  • The current machines used are Webster & Bennett 62" diameter table machines.
  • If experienced in horizontal boring this may be acceptable dependent upon the calibre of the candidate.
  • Main task will be the machining of flanges; therefore this would be predominantly machining the face, edge and bore.
  • There are not tight tolerances on the machine finishes. The tolerances normally are within +/-1mm rather than +/- 0.1mm.
  • Must be able to understand / interpret conventional drawings and be able to speak English in order to fully understand both the verbal & written instructions for the machining requirements.
  • This machining is not high precision and could be described as 'roughing’ work prior to the final precision cuts being made.

Secondary Role

  • Setting and operating a range of radial drills - from 3’ 6" to 10’ capacity.
  • Must be conversant with the setting of Pitch Circle Diameters (PCD), for flange drilling and tapping, using a rotary table.
  • Must be able to set and operate with minimum of supervision, therefore must be experienced in setting both feeds and speeds of radial drills.

Desirable

  • Centre lathe turner manufacturing carbon & stainless-steel flanges using conventional lathes (not CNC).
  • Tolerances are not close as in +/- 0.10mm but wider up to +/- 1mm.
  • No single point thread cutting experience required.
  • Main operations are face, edge and boring of profiled carbon steel blanks.
  • Must be able to set and operate with minimum of supervision, therefore must be experienced in setting both feeds and speeds of lathe.
