Oerlikon Fairfield manufacturing

Cnc machinist

The company I currently work for is called oerlikon Fairfield manufacturing. They are the largest gear making facility in North America. They employ about 1000 people. I have been employed there nearly 10 years. During that 10 years I have setup and operated a lot of different machines. Anywhere from turning machines to hobbers to machine centers and redins. I currently run a cell where I make some gears for EMD trains. I take a part through 4 different operations. It starts with a machine center, end milling both ends of it and drilling holes in it. Also putting centers on both ends. Then I move the part to a turning machine, putting it between centers and cutting it to blueprint size. After that I take it and put it in a hobbing machine and cut teeth in one end of it. Then redin the part to get a good champ her and get the burrs off of it. My favorite thing to do is run a turning lathe. It challenges your mind everyday and always keep you thinking. I have run a lot of different MAZAK turning lathes and have also used a okuma lathe. I am very good with numbers and I believe that is a very helpful tool in this type of work. I have my own tools: 0-1 through 5-6 O.D. Micrometers and calipers and a indicater.
