Job Description

U.S. Pipe Fabrication is the largest independent ductile iron pipe fabricator in the United States. Since our beginning in 1991, it has been our mission to provide the finest fabricated products along with excellent local service across the United States. U.S. Pipe Fabrication has revolutionized the ductile iron pipe fabrication business.

We are currently seeking a machine operator for our San Antonio facility.

Responsible for measuring, threading adjusting flange fit, and facing the flange on a piece of pipe.  Work also includes operation of the machine and a crane to move pipe in and out of machine.

Measures pipe to fabricate pipe proper length.

Places pipe in machine, center the pipe and tighten for work.  After the pipe is in place, the operator will machine a taper into the pipe, and then machine the threads into the pipe.  During this process, the machine operator is responsible for verifying measurements, and thread depth using a micrometer.

After the threads are cut the operator tests the flange to make sure it screws onto the pipe properly.  Adjustments are made to the threads if an issue occurs.  

Applies glue on pipe and flange and use the machine to tighten the flange onto the pipe.

Runs the cutting tool across the surface of the face of the flange to flush fit the flange onto the pipe.    

May assist with shipping, receiving, painting or other duties as needed.
