Optical Pattern Operator/ Orlando, FL
Description: Sets up, operates and adjusts a variety of photolithographic production equipment used to perform required operations and tests on production parts with optical patterns. Additionally sets up and operates manual, and computer controlled equipment, such as coat, deposition, cleaning, and similar photolithographic equipment used in optical applications.
• Works under general direction and from production schedules, manufacturing procedures, process, and written or oral instruction. Use knowledge of photolithographic process to perform production of optical patterned parts.
• Operates and carefully adjusts parts and materials into fixture with proper alignment for operations.
• Use manual and computer controlled equipment to apply pattern and deposition masks on optical parts to ensure proper placement of materials.
• Works in cleanroom with delicate optical components which are highly sensitive, precise and require special handling.
• Performs metal lift off and etch processes to create micron sized features.
• Uses gages, microscope, electronic instruments and small tools to check dimensions, handle materials and prepare parts for subsequent operations.
• For processing of optical patterned parts; uses small hand tools, scales and measures, mixes materials for processes according to production specifications. Set up certain processing units according to process specifications and instructions. Processes performed are one or more of the following: acid and solvent cleaning, coating, baking, etching, exposing, developing, stripping and aligning. During processing may adjust and modify process within normal parameters to compensate for specific conditions. In case of major deviation supervisor and more experienced personnel will provide guidance.
