Job Type
21 Sep 2022
Northern Metal Fab is a versatile custom fabrication job shop where our employees are exposed to manufacturing of many diverse products. Along with custom fabrication and tooling, we specialize in air & bulk handling, commercial marine, industrial vehicles, and water treatment to name a few. We are all about variety and unique projects that keep our days interesting.

We are looking for a knowledgeable and experienced laser programmer/operator to run our Mazak laser cutting machine. You must be familiar with all safety and operational aspects of running a laser. We are looking for someone who is comfortable and knows what they are doing behind the control panel!

We are primarily considered a job shop so from a laser operating standpoint, you will be running many different material types and thickness' throughout the day. Do not expect to sit behind the machine and run the same parts day in and day out. All day every day will be different and unique. You must be able to swing with the punches and adapt to the demands of the customers. There will be regular interruptions to your schedule to accommodate our customers needs. As a result, there will often be times that unscheduled jobs will need to be thrown in to the schedule causing you to stop what you are doing, set up and run said parts and then resume with your cutting schedule as planned. We need someone that can adapt in this way and not skip a beat! This is what sets us apart from the competition and what makes Northern Metal Fab, Inc. invaluable to our wide range of customers!
