What is a CNC Operator?
A computer numerically controlled (CNC) operator and programmer holds a highly specialized position found principally in production companies. They handle computer-programmed machinery that perform a wide variety of functions, such as drilling, cutting, or shaping materials. The raw materials handled by CNC machines may be too strong or dense for workers to shape or work with by themselves.
What does a CNC Operator do?
A CNC operator and programmer is largely responsible for writing the commands for these machines, inputting them into the CNC program, and making sure that written commands lead to desired outcomes. These commands also must be efficient and cost-effective. In addition, CNC operator and programmers troubleshoot problems by CNC machine users and, if those problems can’t be treated, reporting them to supervisors.
