Job and Die Setters
Job setters and die setters, also known as setup operators or setup workers, prepare machine tools and production tools for others to use. They set up jigs, fixtures, cutting tools, and stamping tools on machines that are used for the shaping of metal. They also instruct machine tool operators on how to use the machines, and they make minor repairs and adjustments as needed during production. In some smaller companies these employees may also operate the machinery they set up.
