CNC Lathe Programmer
Posted on Nov 18, 2018 by Affinity Executive Search
We are looking for an experienced CNC programmer/ machinist that is familiar with Gibbs Cam software and Fanuc controls. We will test all applicants to make sure you are able to program in both G code and using the Gibbs Cam software. If you have similar experience with Master Cam or a different Cam software we would be willing to train you in Gibbs Cam. You must have all your own tools and rollaway box- it would be at least all mics and tools of a journeyman machinist. We are not interested in someone who only has basic experience in CNC operation. You must be able to read prints, setup your own machine, and make a part complete in a timely fashion. We are looking for both mill and lathe machinist and are willing to talk if you think you are qualified.
