Nature & Scope of Position
This is technical work related to the measurement of components and equipment for dimensional accuracy, and structural and physical soundness.
- Perform material analysis. And leak tests on components to verify acceptability, this includes:
- Sectioning and polishing of turbine blades.
- Microscope analysis of material sub structure.
- Photograph and document findings.
- Take hardness test measurements using a hardness tester.
- Using tensile tester, take material tensile measurements.
- Leak test gas generator cases to identify compliance with OEM engine build requirements.
- Read the ERI (Engineering Repair Instruction) and /or applicable OEM (Original Engine Manufacture), manuals to determine what inspection results are required.
Perform Non-Destructive inspections on components to verify material structural integrity, this includes:
Reading the ERI and/or the applicable OEM manual, to determine the type and sensitivity of the inspection required.
Using the Liquid Penetrant Inspection (LPI or FPI) method, as per ATI PCP’s and PWC SPOP’s.
To identify the size and location of any indications found.
Using the Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) method, as pre ATI PCP’s and PWC SPOP’s to identify the size and location of any indications found.
Tag components, indicating the number of indicators, identify components as being inspected.
Complete the MEP-DOC paperwork as required.
Identify any non-conformances and complete the NCR as required.
Attaining certification from CGSB level II competency for both LPI and MPI techniques.
In addition, there will be limited work which will include performing dimensional measurements on components to verify the accuracy of limits and tolerances, this includes:
- Determining the correct inspection method or instruments to be used.
- Using manual methods to take dimensional readings on components to determine the control feature values.
- Preparation of computer programs for the CMM (Coordinate Measuring Machine), if required to obtain the measurement of the specific dimensions and control features, as called out in the various work and process control documents.
- Complete and verify inspection reports.
- Identify any non-conformances and complete the NCR (Non-Conformance Report) or inspection reports as required.
- Ensuring that the daily maintenance procedures are carried out on the CMM.
- Review updated and/or revised ERI and CIR manuals, so as to ensure that the current inspection criteria are valid.
- Edit and revise CMM programs to ensure compliance with any revised inspection criteria.
- Perform maintenance on equipment as scheduled by the preventative maintenance program.
- Perform all other duties as required to ensure departmental efficiencies.
- This position will be subject to shift work, occasional overtime, weekends and holiday on-call as required.
- Completion of grade 12 or equivalent and post-secondary education in a technical discipline.
- Preference will be given to applicants who have successful completed an Electromechanical Technology Program or CGSB program from a recognized post secondary institution.
- Good written and oral communication skills
- Good visual acuity, be able to meet the minimum eye test requirements as determined by OEM standards.
- An individual in this capacity must be aware that the position will involve:
- Sufficient strength to safely maneuver all parts requiring processing (using available hoists, etc,) without risk of personal injury or damage to the parts.
- Working in a hot, but well ventilated area, with a collection of toxic and non-toxic chemicals being used throughout.
- Must be willing to walk to various areas throughout the facility throughout the day.
- Must be willing to comply with company established safety regulations and dress code
