Precision CNC Machinist


(Hampton, NH)

SUMMARY:  A Precision CNC Machinist at QA Technology will program, perform precision set-ups for, maintain, and operate CNC milling/lathe machines. They will fabricate parts using detailed drawings or sketches directly from design engineers to build internal production assembly equipment, develop prototypes, and implement new product tooling.


  • Ability to self-manage parts and packages; organizing timelines, resources, materials, and utilizing multiple machines simultaneously to aid engineering implementation for internal production needs.
  • Ability to collaborate with tool makers, EDM machinists, production machinists, and vendors to create an efficient path toward the best component possible.
  • Develop CNC programming of machine parts and components using CNC software from 2D and 3D part models for unique and innovative metal cutting operations.
  • Create and manage a tool library to rapidly produce small quantity parts.
  • Write, read, and comprehend G-Code.
  • Write, use, and manipulate machine macros for in-machine inspection using a Renishaw probe system and for the use of external triggers.
  • Ability to program surfacing and optimize tooling paths for efficiency.
  • Achieve part specifications by determining best practices for machining parts, including cutter speeds, feed rates, depth of cuts, tool geometry, and cutting method selection.
  • Utilize precision measurement tools (e.g., calipers, micrometers, gage blocks/pins, comparator, small bore gages, indicators, Cadillac gage, Renishaw probe system, etc.) to inspect parts and verify dimensions and quality of work.
  • Must be able to make necessary in-process adjustments and offsets to achieve close tolerances.
  • Design and build fixtures necessary for part quality.
  • Perform basic mathematic and trigonometric calculations to interpret drawings and inspect dimensions.
  • Machine a variety of materials such as plastic (filled and unfilled), aluminum (6061, 2024, 7075), tool steels, nickel-based alloys, brass, bronzes, and stainless steels.
  • Deburr and finish parts to a high standard of workmanship.
  • Perform heat treatment in a furnace for tool and ferritic stainless steels.
  • At times, assemble manufactured components for the build of in-house equipment and verification of the operation.
  • At times, will set up and operate the full range of manual machine tool equipment such as bandsaw, lathe, mill, grinder, and hone to perform work involving creative setups, unusually close tolerances, and critical dimensions.
  • Perform general machine maintenance as required.
  • Provide ongoing input to supervisor/management for continuous improvements.
  • Perform general housekeeping of the work area.
  • Attendance is an essential function of this position.
  • Other duties may be assigned.
  • Required EDUCATION and/or EXPERIENCE:

  • High school, GED, or trade school education with a minimum of five (5) years of machine shop experience
  • Minimum of three (3) years of experience with CNC programming
  • Desired EDUCATION and/or EXPERIENCE:

  • Experience with Okuma controls
  • Experience with micro drilling and/or deep hole drilling
  • Experience with high-pressure coolant and coolant-driven spindles
  • Experience with CNC Milling Centers and CNC Turning Centers
  • Certificates or experience with Solidworks, Mastercam, and/or CamWorks, and Microsoft office products
  • Experience with ProtoTrak mills, lathes, and MillPWR mills
  • Experience with AgieVision, wire EDM, or sinker EDM
  • Three (3) years of experience manual machining

  • Standing on anti-fatigue mats for the majority of the shift
  • Ability to lift 20lbs material
  • Individuals with disabilities may meet the physical demands if reasonable accommodation allows them to perform the essential functions
  • WORK ENVIRONMENTThe Precision CNC Machinist has a dedicated section of QA technology’s tool room. The workspace is climate-controlled, brightly lit, routinely cleaned, organized, and quiet. The tool room is surrounded by large windows overlooking the grounds

    At QA, we treasure collaboration. To support that mentality, tool room personnel and engineers work alongside each other in our spacious 11,000 ft2 tool room.
