With more than 120 operations and approximately 20,000 employees worldwide, Precision Castparts Corp. is the market leader in manufacturing large, complex structural investment castings, airfoil castings, forged components, aerostructures and highly engineered, critical fasteners for aerospace applications. In addition, we are the leading producer of airfoil castings for the industrial gas turbine market. We also manufacture extruded seamless pipe, fittings, and forgings for power generation and oil & gas applications; commercial and military airframe aerostructures; and metal alloys and other materials for the casting and forging industries. With such critical applications, we insist on quality and dependability – not just in the materials and products we make, but in the people we recruit.

PCC is relentless in its dedication to being a high-quality, low-cost and on-time producer; delivering the highest value to its customers while continually pursuing strategic, profitable growth.

In 2016, Berkshire Hathaway, led by Chairman and CEO Warren E. Buffett, acquired Precision Castparts Corp.

Mission:

To identify and correct visual / dimensional flaws in castings to insure the final product meets customer specifications.  Based on business needs, may be required to perform the functions of visual / dimensional inspection and straightening (along with their associated tasks i.e. hardness testing, UTT, targeting, CMM evaluation/disposition etc.) as defined on PCC Technique Cards, blueprints and other documentation. 

NOTE:

The aim of this description is to recognize multi-skilled work which facilitates the flow of parts.   Instead the multiple tasks are performed on the parts by a single employee.  Each employee is expected to apply an average of 20 percent of their total hours worked, performing on one or more secondary functions in addition to a primary “core” function.

Examples:

1.  If your primary “core function” is visual dimensional inspection, then the secondary function of straightening must be performed a minimum of 20% of the time.

2.  If your primary “core function” is straightening, then the secondary function of visual dimensional inspection must be performed a minimum of 20% of the time.


PRINCIPAL ACCOUNTABILITIES

1.  Visual / Dimensional Inspection

     Objective: to visually and dimensionally inspect castings in accordance with      customer specifications and to ensure that only necessary rework is performed.  

     Essential Job Functions

     A. Follows Quality Systems and Technique Card requirements. 
     B. Fixtures some parts and leaves others freestanding.
     C. Visually inspects castings as required.
     D. Dimensionally inspects castings for conformance to blueprint and Technique Card specifications using templates, micrometers, fixtures, gauges, calipers, ultrasound, boroscope and other dimensional                        measuring devices.
     E. Checks casting hardness using Brinell, Rockwell and other instruments.
     F.  Marks castings to identify area needing rework, mill rates, etc.  in order to meet dimensional and visual specifications.
     G. Adjusts fixtures, gauges and precision measuring tools to calibrated standards.
     H. Interprets CMM reports and performs other visual / dimensional functions as required to move part through production process.  Works from established rest points for targeting.
    
2.  Straightening

     Objective: to straighten castings to meet dimensional tolerances and customer specifications.

     Essential Job Functions:

     A.  Sets up castings on surface plates or fixtures.
     B.  Evaluates the condition of parts using precision measuring tools, or CMM reports; determines the most effective method of straightening castings.
     C.  Establishes datums to casting surfaces and fixtures on surface plates; straightens to a     rotational tolerance.
     D.  Straightens casting to the required configuration using a variety of tools and devices, including presses, straightening fixtures, profile templates, and power or manual tools.

3.  Casting Repair and Analysis

     A.  Make recommendations to resolve part non-conformity.  May work in other disciplines to resolve quality issues.
     B.  Performs other tasks as directed including blending of defect areas.
     C.  Makes recommendation for part routing as required.
    
4.  Documentation

     A.  Completes and maintains a variety of records, logs and non-conformance reports and production reports as required.

5.  Safety

    Objective:  to take responsibility for and demonstrate safe work practices.

    A.  Adheres to plant and department safety rules.
    B.  Safely operates all equipment and tools.
    C.  Identifies and reports safety problems.

6.    Performs other duties as assigned.
