Job Summary


Our Tampa, FL location is seeking a qualified candidate for a CNC Programmer and Shape Digitizer position. This position is responsible for utilizing specific software to create CNC programs based on customer-supplied information and sketches. This program is run on a CNC machine on a production floor to create a finished product made of glass.  Additionally, the position utilizes other software and cameras to digitize physical patterns so production equipment can create that shape out of glass. 

Essential Duties and Responsibilities 


  • Use computer software (Forvet Forcam) to produce all programs for two Forvet CNC machines. These machines drill and mill holes, cutouts, and shapes into pieces of glass. 
  • Read and understand sketches and drawings showing measurements and locations of customer requested holes, cutouts or shapes in glass; then create error free programs based on the supplied information
  • Use a camera and software (Virtual Digitizer and AutoCAD) to take pictures of customer supplied patterns and convert that image into a digital shape and file. This digital file will then be used to cut the customer requested shape out of a piece of glass. 




  • HS Diploma or GED; Associates Degree or above preferred
  • Two years of verified work experience from previous employer(s) or Auto-CAD (2005 or later) Training Certificate or experience with software mentioned above
  • Must possess the ability to read & interpret contract drawings and customer sketches as well as ability to create and modify drawings on a computer using provided software
  • Must have a high mathematic and logical aptitude, especially with fractions and decimals as a unit of measure (metric and imperial)
  • Enter data accurately without error
  • Strong customer service skills, organizational skills, self-motivation, and the ability to multitask and work independently
  • Motivated to start and finish a project on time meeting the demands of our customers
  • Must be highly detail oriented and able to solve problems with little guidance


Work Environment 


  • Most of this position is spent in an office on the production floor. To avoid injuries to hands, back and neck, proper ergonomics should be maintained while working at desk/workstation.
  • You will use the production floor to digitize shapes and work closely with the CNC machine operators to resolve issues and create solutions. The safety rules related to the plant must be followed.
  • The production area is not climate controlled, therefore is subject to varied temperatures consistent with same climate conditions of the region (Heat, humidity, etc.)
