My little corner of the world, Engineering at an Aerospace Machine shop

Bloomfield CT Manufacturing Engineer /Tool Designer/CNC Programmer I've been working as an Engineer in charge of creating and overseeing processes to produce aerospace parts. We produce rotating disks, hubs, shafts and seals, for both aerospace and ground based gas turbine engines. We also produce cases and other aerospace items. My duties include daily use of CAD/CAM systems such as Unigraphics NX 6, NX 7.5 and others to create fixture designs and drawings, process sheets, CAD models and manufacturing files. I also write NC programs for CNC milling centers using Unigraphics, Mastercam, and hand coding. Other Engineering duties include diagnosis and problem resolution of machining center issues, process issues, production issues and setting up and designing fixturing for various processes from FPI to Shot Peen to Balancing and Spin Testing. Liaison with vendors on technical issues is also a part of the job. Since most of these parts are locked Engineering Source Approval processes, QC procedures, Root Cause Analysis and Inspection skills are also needed to get processes approved. Drawing interpretation and specification review for customers such as Pratt and Whitney, GE, MTU Aero Engines, Rolls Royce, Goodrich, Sikorsky and others are necessary. Creating and approving rework and repair procedures are also part of the job
