Employee requires some/little supervision as he/she operates heat treating furnaces, using standard heat treating charts, and utilizing knowledge of heat-treating methods, equipment, and properties of metals where cycle time, temperature and methods are prescribed and are largely repetitive and where operational methods are standardized.
Employee sets and regulates temperature controls, visually checks parts for foreign matter, positions parts on racks, loads furnaces, monitors heating cycle to assure that parts are brought up to the proper temperature and for the proper amount of cycle time. In addition, this individual monitors the heating cycle, is capable of answering alarms and clearing the condition causing those alarms as appropriate.

Should be capable of reading and understanding work instructions for the staging, loading and finishing of the process (such as hardness testing) for repetitive jobs.
Should be in training or capable of (with supervision) using measuring instruments to insure
customer requests for dimensional accuracy straightness, roundness and hardness. (Micrometer, dial indicator, rulers, etc.) This means they will be able to properly read, understand and interpret the
charts involved, and follow the proper procedures for using the equipment involved to obtain accurate measures.
