Moog Inc Senior Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) Programmer in East Aurora, New York
Moog Aircraft Group is the world-wide leader of advanced flight controls and actuation for commercial and military aircraft. We are positioned on virtually every aircraft flying today, supplying highly reliable systems that are supportable and add significant value for our customers.
Our AG Site Quality ManagementDepartment is looking for aSenior Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM)Programmertocontribute to the development of a cost-effective inspection system and device strategies for system enhancements which assure long range integrity and cost effectiveness of the measurements system. You will plan, develop, and proof CMM inspection programs for complex parts, components, and assemblies. Additionally, you will have latitude for decision making relative to inspection methodology and development of various algorithms for use in Automated Inspection programs.
Prepare electronic code and detailed inspection instructions for the operation of numerical controlled (N/C) inspection equipment by "learn programming" and "offline" by developing or sharing electronic data with Design and Manufacturing Engineering. This may include the creation of solid models using CAD systems in cases where no previous model has been developed.
Assure compatibility of engineering drawings, design data, and fabrication methods, with CMM methods and capabilities. Provide feedback to other engineering disciplines based upon errors detected in the off-line CAI programming process.
Provide CMM training to CMM programmers, machinists, quality auditors, and technicians, including the development of standard training materials.
Develop, maintain, and perform calibration and confidence programs, and maintenance schedules to ensure Automated Inspection operation to manufacturers' specifications. Resolve complex hardware issues with manufacturers.
Resolve compatibility issues between the CAI system and design data generated by the CAD processes.
Develop unique solutions to complex problems. This problem solving activity may include "debugging" of CMM executive software problems, resolving problems with part inspection programs, resolving system issues with manufacturers of the CAI system.
Conduct studies to determine optimum inspection strategies for parts and assemblies including equipment and software recommendations and changes to equipment, gauging, tooling, processes, methods, and designs. Develop algorithms which optimize the development of part inspection programs.
Technical capacity and a fundamental understanding of analytic geometry, linear algebra, and programming logic. Ability to work concurrently with Design Engineers to specify datums and drawing call out conventions which are compatible with Automated Inspection practices and capabilities.
Intermediate understanding and application of GD&T principles are required.
Seasoned knowledge of various manufacturing, fabrication, and measurement processes to assist Manufacturing Engineers in the resolution of measurement system and manufacturing problems.
Ability to develop CMM programs both at the CMM by "learn programming'" and "off-line" at the computer aided inspection station (CAI).
Above average human relation skills and good judgment in setting priorities and determining the most appropriate timing for resolution of system problems so that production is not impacted by needs for part programs.
