We are looking to recruit an experienced CNC Machinist. You must be conversant with programming (CAM) and have some experience in sub 20um machining.

You must be fully conversant with engineering drawings and have experience with different types of measuring tools (Verniers, Micrometers, Ball Gauges, Air Gauges etc)

Does this sound like you?

~ Good mathematical skills

~ (Ideally) experienced with nonferrous metals

~ A good engineering background

~ Be able to quickly work with the minimum of supervision

Training could be offered to the right individual

Work Environment

Low volume, high precision, quality focused manufacturing environment, where you will experience regular problem solving challenges to produce product to the required standard, whether its speeds and feeds, new fixtures or developing new products.

Our products

The latest phase of investment has seen Flann add new frequency analysis hardware, new milling machine, and a package of state-of-the-art upgrades to its Robodrill CNC Mill, allowing ultra-high-precision 5-axis machining within a highly temperature-controlled environment. Support for these investments has come through the Big 2 and Acceleration Through Innovation (ATI) programmes, both funded through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

The Team

Kevin joined Flann in 2002 with 28 years engineering experience.

“I find machining in general to be very rewarding and certainly achieving the quality of product that is required here.”

Kevin is a well respected member of the team and has enjoyed seeing how things have changed as the industry has moved on.

Jordan joined Flann in 2007 as an apprentice straight from school.

“I enjoy working with nonferrous materials and developing new machining strategies, and the variations in work types.”

Jordan has progressed really well and is now a Development Machinist, investigating improving machining methods and reducing the need for single fixturing. This is quite involved due to the various products we produce.

Alex joined Flann in 2014 as an apprentice.

“I like the 4 day week and the wealth of experienced machinists that I can call on if I need to. The variation of products I work on keeps me on my toes.”

After being at Flann for 5 years, Alex is conversant with both manual mill and manual lathe work and also gets involved with first makes and development work.
