The responsibilities of the Manufacturing Engineer include, but are not limited to:
Developing manufacturing process routing. Interpret component drawing created by our clients design engineers to determine the manufacturing steps for production of the part. Identify the tooling, work-holding and manufacturing equipment and processes necessary to machine the part. Utilize both internal and external resources.
Review and optimize existing manufacturing processes, assembly procedures, and work flow to increase efficiency and product quality, manage costs, reduce lead-times, and improve safety.
Generating CNC programs directly on the machine or through use of CAD/CAM software.
Write work instructions for use in production of components and assemblies
Work closely with Production Supervisor, Materials Manager and manufacturing staff, providing support and trouble-shooting manufacturing processes and/or quality problems.
Serve as role model for safety, participate in Lean improvement initiatives, benchmark state-of-the-art practices, attend educational workshops, review professional publications and maintain strong relationships with vendors.
Assist with special projects including things like equipment justification, shop efficiency improvements, and work analysis.
The ideal candidate will possess the following qualifications:
Bachelors Degree in Engineering (Manufacturing, Industrial, Mechanical or General), or equivalent.
5 to 8 years experience as a Manufacturing Engineer, ideally in a low volume/high mix manufacturing environment where discrete precision components are produced on CNC-machines.
Experience conducting Design for Manufacture analysis.
Proficient in CAD/CAM software used in conjunction with 5-axis machining, or lathes with live-tooling (Mastercam or Espirit preferred)
Ability to use 3D modeling software (Solidworks preferred).
Proven track record of specifying the proper manufacturing processes and selecting tooling and fixtures to ensure the highest quality and most efficient process.
Ability to clearly relate the manufacturing process via process documents, routers, process drawings and work instructions.
Knowledge of supplementary manufacturing processing, heat treatment, distortion, work-holding, inspection, continuous improvement processes and lean manufacturing principles.
Experience operating DMG/Mori-Seiki vertical mills and lathes with live-tooling and Mazak Integrex 5-axis machining centers (or equivalent).
A creative problem solver who can implement change or new processes, results oriented, proactive, organized, calm under pressure, and decisive.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
