Position Purpose:

This position is responsible for operation of vacuum brazing furnaces.


1. Maintain an acceptable level of performance. SC: Efficiency: 100% as defined by the number of braze loads per day. SC: Indirect by Direct %: Less than 9%.

2. Operate vacuum braze furnaces within the specified parameters determined by manufacturing engineering. Cores coming from Stacking are put on racks, ensuring that similar cores are run through together. Connect thermocouples to each core in order to monitor the temperature as the core goes through the furnace. Use the overhead lift to load racks into the furnace. Program the Operator Interface Terminal to identify the specific cores being brazed. Monitor the vacuum and heat on the terminal throughout three stages as the parts progress through the furnace. Record data on a Brazing Log for each batch. May monitor two furnaces at a time. SC: Braze loads are ran to the correct profile and specified parameters are maintained.

3. Measure, flatten and square brazed units to the required specifications per router sheet using a hammer and block if necessary. Identify load sequence, work order and initial each core. SC: Cores are brazed according to the daily schedule.

4. Complete daily operator preventative maintenance assignments including set-points, oil levels, temperature, coolant flow and PSI. SC: Work area is cleaned and organized.

5. May be required to periodically clean, scrape, sweep and vacuum the inside of the furnace while wearing fire resistant and respiratory equipment.
