The company

Cooper Golding is looking for a CNC Setter/Operator for our Devon based client, that’s offering the chance work on a shiny new Nakamura machine!  They are a specialist manufacturer of high precision bespoke components, providing high-quality finished parts for various specialist industries. Due to continued growth, and with reinvestment into new machines allowing for increased capability, they are seeking experienced Lathe/Turning Setter/Operators who share their values of right first time, quality, customer relationships and teamwork.

Whilst there’s the added investment of now being part of a larger group of companies, the business in Crediton runs autonomously and has retained a family feel with many staff having worked here for many years. As such, you’ll be joining a friendly team of experienced and knowledgeable colleagues.

  • Working with Nakamura/live head lathes/Fanuc controls
  • Complete records and documentations
  • Maintain good housekeeping standards
  • Ensure an effective handover to the next operator
  • Ensure the quality of product is to the expected high standard

What skills and experience will you have as the CNC Setter/Operator?

  • Must be competent in both setting and operating CNC turning machines – it would be ideal if you’re experienced with live head and twin spindle machines; even better if that’s on Nakamura
  • Ability to meet high standards on a consistent basis
  • Ability to read and accurately interpret engineering drawings
  • Ability to identify production issues and correct accordingly
  • Ability to understand turning programs and adjust if necessary
