-- CNC service engineers are specialists that have a degree in computer engineering and perform all sorts of tasks from inspecting a CNC machine to see if it suffers from any malfunction to performing maintenance tasks to ensure the machine will work correctly for a long period.
Employment websites show an increase of the demand for CNC service engineers. But in order to be a CNC service engineer, you need more than passion for technics and a degree in engineering; you have to know how to run CNC machines and how to use computer-aided design programs.
At the same time, a good CNC service engineer has to know how to communicate effectively with those around him, to ensure they understand what they have to do to prevent a premature wear of the CNC machine.
Among the most common duties performed by service engineers, there can be included: CNC machine installations, CNC machine repairs, and preventive maintanance. For this, the engineers have to be willing to travel a lot, since the machines are found in other locations, not at the engineers’ headquarters.
Service engineers collaborate with the sales and customer support departments and try to solve the problems of all those who contact these departments to announce an issue with their CNC machine. Technical support can be offered by phone, but in most cases, the engineers have to go to the site where the machine is located.
Some CNC machines can be diagnosed or even repaired remotely. Still, when it comes to their regular overhaul, service engineers need to pay the CNC machine owner a visit and check the device personally. To avoid getting overcrowded by too many checkings and inspections they have to perform, the engineers need to keep a schedule of their meetings.
Service engineers also have to know the wide range of manufacturing components and technologies, to be able to give the right advice to a client on what components to purchase in order to replace some broken ones.
And lastly, they have to prove effective, punctual, respect deadlines, and be good team players. Service engineers work in a very fast-paced environment, that is why they are often sent to trainings, so another responsibility of theirs is to always get updated with the new machine designs and tools, to be ready to find solutions to the new technical challenges.
Luckily for those who are hired to provide CNC machine repairs, installations, and maintenance services, many employers cover their tuition programs, so it is very easy for some engineers to stay updated with the vibrant environment in which they work.
