How do I find information on lathe (turning and milling) operators job duties?

Hello,

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor's Occupational Outlook Handbook, lathe operators primarily monitor machinery during operation, sometimes load and unload machines, and occasionally make minor adjustments to the controls. Because the setup process requires an understanding of the entire production process, setters usually have more training and are more highly skilled than those who simply operate or tend machinery. As new automation simplifies the setup process, however, less skilled workers also are increasingly able to set up machines for operation. Job duties usually vary by the size of the firm. In addition, if the firm has implemented "lean manufacturing", the lathe operator may be required to rotate between different machines. Typically, operators place metal stock in a machine where the operating specifications have already been set, operate the machines, and make small adjustments as necessary. There were 71,000 lathe operators, setters, and tenders in the U.S. in 2004, and their median earnings were $15.04/hour.

If you do a search on monster.com for "lathe operator", you can also see the typical job duties that various companies require for employment. Here are some examples:

(1) Performs machining operations on all kinds of metal parts. Shapes metal parts to precise dimensions within close tolerances prescribed. Set up and operates all types of machine tools. Skillfully uses all machinist hand tools.

(2) Read Blueprints or standard charts to determine specs.
Perform routine machine maintenance. Responsible for set up equipment.

(3) Set up and operate parts on a manual milling machine.

There are many more job descriptions, just go through them and take a look. Good luck!
