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.


To interpret (by use of computer applications) all film and electronically acquired radiographs taken of castings to determine that discrepancies meet customer specifications and PCC standards; to determine if parts are acceptable or need repair, mark and route parts for necessary repairs and sign final reports that approve castings sent to customers.


Preparation:  To review specifications and radiographs prior to evaluation.
A.    Review Technique Cards and paperwork to part specifications.
B.    Sort radiographs by view for each part.
C.    Check each radiograph to determine that appropriate quality for image sensitivity and accuracy is obtained.
D.    Ensure proper image file management protocol is followed.

Interpretation:  To interpret and evaluate radiographs in order to determine the quality of castings and to accept the part or route for repair according to customer and PCC specifications.
A.    Visually evaluate radiographic indications to determine if casting or welding discontinuities exist.
B.    Interpret identified discontinuities to determine their cause and/or whether they meet customer specifications.
C.    Interpret and identify surface and subsurface discontinuities per customer specifications.
D.    Evaluate parts with repeat problem areas; consult with engineering as appropriate.
E.    Mark problem areas on parts needing repair; may request additional radiographs to further evaluate indications; routes for repair on rework routing cards; may decide on or recommend necessary repairs.
F.    Sign and stamp reports for acceptance of parts as determined by interpreter.
G.    Review weld maps to ensure all welds have been radiographed.
H.    Perform mathematical calculations from detailed drawings or blueprints to determine acceptability.

Other Duties:
A.    May be required to handle hazardous waste and follow all required PPE regulations.
B.    Must meet all production and quality standards per department standards.
C.    Accurately record and document work performed.
D.    Provide training and work direction to less experienced personnel as assigned.
