Product Engineers are responsible for developing and maintaining high yielding, dimensionally sound, and manufacturing efficient processes. They must be able to mentor less experienced engineers in areas such as: wax die core positioning, external to internal dimensional relationships, process capability statistical analyses, tooling design and build instruction, casting airflow, and reforming techniques. Responsibilities
- Casting dimensional control
- Well versed in GD&T as well as dimensional layout techniques, including structured light – bluelight and/or whitelight as well as CMM inspection.
- Ability to communicate and interpret inspection criteria and data with inspectors and customer design engineers.
- Statistically evaluate dimensional data to define improvement opportunities.
- Thorough understanding of casting datum systems is required .
- Ceramic core visual and dimensional control
- Communicate effectively with core suppliers.
- Understand and develop statistically derived dimensional inspection criteria.
- Apply casting B/P limits to core visual quality.
- Lead development projects (NPI) and deliver on time.
- Confidently lead casting dimensional and/or tolling discussions with CCTC customers.
- Review customer specifications and blueprints to determine the procedures, testing, and routing sequences required to meet the dimensional requirements
- Utilizes process knowledge, basic engineering principles, previous experience, and creativity as necessary to develop processes that result in the production of quality castings that conform to customer specifications and time tables.
- Develop new technology to support plant initiatives.
- Reviews all layouts, tool reworks, and tool construction as necessary to ensure consistency and repeatability of process results.
- Successfully team with CCTC process and quality engineers to meet customer milestones.
