Robotic Laser Operator

Manufacturing and Test

DESCRIPTION:  As part of a small team, you’ll program and operate robotic laser processing machines to produce high-value aerospace components.  Additionally, you’ll work with process and design engineers to characterize, improve, and document manufacturing processes and the resulting hardware quality.
  • Read and interpret engineering drawings
  • Jog and dry-run robot to set up processing
  • Operate and maintain fiber laser equipment
  • Robotic system programming, both at the machine control and with offline software
  • Provide manufacturing feedback to design engineers
  • Provide process improvement feedback to process engineers
  • Safely work within an industrial environment
  • Understanding of laser optics and processes such as cutting and welding, part set up, and servicing of power supply, chillers, process gas systems, and motion systems – including knowledge of laser safety practices
  • Experience in the operation and programming of robotic-based systems (online-coding and CAM)
  • Ability to read and interpret engineering drawings
  • Ability to set-up and precisely position large scale hardware
  • Ability to lift up to 50 lbs.
  • Must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident alien 
  • Kuka robotic language (KRL) online programming
  • Robotmaster offline CAM programming
  • Metallography:  ability to cut, mount, polish, etch, acquire images and perform hardness tests.  Ability to identify basic microstructure in a weld cross section.
  • Ability to operate manual machine tools (basic lathe, mill)
  • Crane operator/ lift coordinator experience
