Quality Control Technician


Quality Control Technician

Quality Control Technicians have the critical responsibility of ensuring that customers get parts and products that comply with their specifications. To do this, Quality Control Technicians inspect, test, sort, sample, and weigh parts for defects and deviations from specifications. They often use precision measuring instruments like calipers and micrometers to accomplish these tasks. Quality Control Technicians also read work orders, blueprints, and other instructions to determine product specifications, material requirements, and operational methods.
