Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) Engineering Division has an immediate opening for an experienced Machinist III.


Under minimal supervision, you will provide advanced technical support in the field of journey-level machining technology. You will Perform complex and specialized assignments. You will apply advanced knowledge, innovation, and creativity in mechanical and shop related theory and practice. You will perform high precision machining operations under the supervision of the Technical supervisor. You may be assigned/rotated to a matrix assignment to provide direct machining support to specific projects/programs.

What You Will Do:

  • Apply advanced knowledge and expertise in mechanical and journey level machining technology, theory, and technical mathematics to effectively and efficiently carry out assignments.

  • Design and fabricate workpiece fixtures for one-of-a-kind or production machine tool fabrication of metallic or non-metallic parts.

  • Provide advanced design for manufacturability advice to technicians, designers, engineers and scientists.

  • Using both conventional and Computer Numerical Controlled machinery, program, set-up and perform highly complex machining operations that include producing hardware components and assemblies bearing complex geometry, extreme precision, non-prismatic features, hidden features and difficult to machine materials.

  • Use computers, in conjunction with Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing software applications to:

    • Access, view, import, export, measure, manipulate and construct native electronic drawings and solid models as well as generic file formats such as dxf and iges.

    • Apply appropriate and efficient tool/cutter path to complex geometry, determining strategic machining sequences, spindle speeds and feed rates.

    • Generate, edit and transfer appropriate machine tool controller-specific part program instructions.

  • Decode blueprints, sketches, parts lists, and assembly diagrams.

  • Understand and apply Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing standards, including:

    • Identify and understand the symbols and terminology that comprise datum reference frames, datum features and feature controls describing form, orientation, size and location, to correctly decode drawings and leverage this knowledge into precisely manufactured components.


What is Required:

  • Extensive experience in the field of machining precise, complex, one-off components, often of expensive and difficult to machine materials, using both conventional and CNC equipment.

  • Advanced understanding of machining theory, work practices and shop mathematics.

  • Extensive experience using CAM systems to analyze components, set-ups, tooling and fixturing, as well as to produce efficient, accurate toolpaths for use on a variety of CNC machine tools.

  • Ability to use CAD systems to manipulate electronic models of machined components and assemblies, as well as to model fixturing, tooling and machine tool components to aid in manufacturing processes.

  • Advanced understanding of the ISO 6983/RS274D machine tool programming language (G-code).

  • Extensive knowledge of the GD&T standard ASME Y14.5, with the ability to read and correctly decode complex blueprints, sketches, parts lists, layout and assembly drawings and operation, calibration and repair manuals.

  • Demonstrated knowledge of and ability to select, set-up and use appropriate hand, power, and specialized machine tools.

  • Demonstrated knowledge, skill and work experience in performing set-ups, testing, troubleshooting, repair, calibration, operation and maintenance of sophisticated mechanical, shop related, and scientific apparatus, equipment and systems.

  • Ability to climb stairs and ladders, and lift 23 kg (50 lbs.).

  • Good verbal and written communication skills.


Additional Desired Qualifications:

  • AS or BS degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology, Manufacturing Engineering Technology or Industrial Engineering Technology and/or successful completion of a formal machinist apprenticeship-program, or the equivalent in formal industrial training is preferred.

  • Experience with the programming, setup and operation of four and five axis machining centers, live tooling turning centers, wire and/or sinker EDM and rapid prototyping machines.

  • Experience in Fanuc Custom Macro B programming.

  • General personal computer application skills with spreadsheets, databases and word processors.


The posting shall remain open until the position is filled.


Notes:

  • This is a full time career appointment.

  • Full-time, M-F, non-exempt (hourly paid) from overtime pay.

  • This position is represented by a union for collective bargaining purposes.

  • Salary will be determined based on range by collective bargaining agreement.

  • This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.

  • Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, 1 Cyclotron Road, Berkeley, CA.
