Tek Pak, Inc.
Machine Tool Operator Job in Batavia, IL
Develop programs to control machining or processing of metal or plastic parts by automatic machine tools, equipment, or systems.
• Determine the sequence of machine operations and select the proper cutting tools needed to machine
workpieces into the desired shapes.
• Revise programs or tapes to eliminate errors, and retest programs to check that problems have been
solved. Analyze job orders, drawings, blueprints, specifications, printed circuit board pattern films, and
design data to calculate dimensions, tool selection, machine speeds, and feed rates.
• Determine reference points, machine cutting paths, or hole locations, and compute angular and linear
dimensions, radii, and curvatures.
• Observe machines on trial runs or conduct computer simulations to ensure that programs and
machinery will function properly and produce items that meet specifications.
