CNC Bender Machine OperatorMarch 2010 to Current Alex Products Inc - 19911 County Road, XT Ridgeville Corners, OH 43555 I run a CNC bender. I setup my machine that uses multiple types of millimeter tooling. I also set the program file for the type of part needed to be ran. After setup, I fine tune the parts with the numerical control screen for gage requirements. My parts are run at high volume daily. I have to keep the machine running smoothly and efficiently due to the continuous production running off the machine. My maintenance on the machine is to look for loose bolts and fractures from stress that need welding, check for air leaks and hydraulic leaks, and change hoses if needed. I also run the tow motor for material handling, loading and unloading trucks for shipping and receiving. I am also certified through the company to use the overhead crane for material that cannot be moved by tow motor.

During production I would have to keep the machine clean from weld buildup. Also had to manually go into the computers touch screen to free up clamp downs and hydraulic lines that would stick. I also ran parts from transfer presses and stamp presses for production.
Machine OperatorMay 2005 to December 2006 Plastec - 535 W Linfoot St, Wauseon OH 43567 I ran plastic Injected molders to make interior car trim for Ford. Also I ran the ILVS line (In Line Vehicle Sequencing) for special orders for a car type and color of the interior trim.
