Sets up and operates winding lathes and computer controlled winding machines to completely wind all low voltage, TV and High Voltage coils meeting all engineering and Quality specifications.
Assembles product by performing such representative duties as:
- Sets up and operates all winding lathes and verifies that all drawings and materials are correct prior to set up
- Obtains required drawings, written and/or verbal instructions
- Installs conductor and roll insulation on machines using correct molds, adaptor pads, stick alignment fixtures per job specifications
- Sets controls, keep-back guides, cold weld limit switches, electrically controlled brake pressures and aligns machine components per printed work instructions where applicable
- Assembles winding mold and places in lathe for TV – HV coils and assembles mold to HV2 coils and assembles to the winding lathe
- Removes finished coils from the lathe and dis-assembles and removes the mold from the coil
- Upon completion of coil (all types), checks required dimensions/parameters according to process control checklist (PICL) and signs it as verification of quality check
- Handles, moves, rigs coils and materials for safe transfer to machines for further processing and staging locations through use of overhead crane, hand truck, carts and slings
- For computer controlled machines, the Low Voltage Winder (LVW) types/enters information via a keyboard and/or control panel to call up/verify specific coil winding programs, changes machine control parameters and follows displayed and printed instructions as the coil is being wound. Manual operation (not computer program controlled – but computer assisted) is controlled by the operator via switch settings and foot pedal controls is also included
- The LVW winds the prescribed number of conductor and paper insulation turns and layers and secures the specified insulation at designated locations in and on each coil
- As specified, uses resistance brazer or oxygen/acetylene torch to join, splice and burn off varnish from leads
- Appropriately verifies on the applicable document(s) (to include: routing/process inspection checklist) that all quality requirements have been met by signing documents as required.
- Must daily keep all equipment and work areas clean and orderly, consistent with good housekeeping practices
Orders the required material(s) from the Store Room and places material(s) received from Store Room in the proper location(s). Reports status of stock of hardware and supplies to supervision. Verifies that all health, safety and environmental requirements, with appropriate documentation, that all of the QHSE requirements have been met.
- High school diploma or equivalent is required.
- Works under general direction of supervisor.
- Must be able to set up and operate machinery, power tools, hand tools and related devices to include: measuring devices and common hand tools.
- Must be capable of using basic math, read and understand written instructions (to include engineering instructions), and basic written and oral communication skills must be exhibited, as well as attention to detail.
- Basic computer skills are required (windows, Microsoft Office, etc). Frequent lifting and movement of materials and components as required.
- Must be capable of working in a typical industrial work environment.
Industrial, manufacturing environment. Appropriate personal protective equipment may be required throughout the manufacturing areas. Occasional noise due to operation of tools and products. Climate controlled work area.
