Description of the Work:

This position is a crucial role; our first name is Precision and we manufacture metal parts; unless it is precise every stage, our quality standards and that of our customers would not be met. If not for our satisfied customers, we would not exist. Parts begin as hand-crafted wax injections into highly engineered tools. Then they progress into investment casting which involves molten metal in our foundry. Once parts are surgically removed from a ceramic shell and support structure, they are sent to the Finish team to refine and prepare for final Quality testing.  Finish involves straightening metal parts, or grinding with special tools, or further machining. Additional skills may include welding. Work in Finish requires steady hands, fine finger dexterity, sharp eyes and a mind that is obsessive about safety, precision, and perfection. It is artistry and craftsmanship. People who tend to do well in this may have had prior experience in machining, metal crafts or fabrication, welding or assembly lines. Must have 2-3 years of skills, knowledge, experience and comfort with; bench equipment, hand tools, deburring, burr guns and grinders.
