JOB SUMMARY
Product Engineer is responsible for developing a robust metallurgical process to manufacture aerospace investment castings.  The individual will support new product development and improvement of existing product.  Improvements will be made through the use their knowledge of metallurgy, investing, casting, and finishing process to maximize yield and minimize cost.  Individual should be fluent in the application of solidification modeling and simulation tools to minimize process development time.

The concepts, and tools of problem solving are essential to the job. Engineers will be required to: identify/define problems, perform root cause analysis, and implement solutions to problems that affect yield, rework, and overall quality of the product using a standardized approach (PDCA, Six-Sigma…).  Knowledge and application of statistics.  Occasionally take a leadership role in resolving cross-functional problems.
 

ESSENTIAL JOB FUNCTIONS/DUTIES
  • Responsible for control of metallurgical quality of casting.  Continuous improvement of process/product such that the castings meet or exceed customer expectations
  • Responsible for developing all aspects of the metallurgical process (gating, shelling, casting, finishing)
  • Communicate with tooling vendors to design concepts for wax pattern die, the build of gate dies and support fixtures
  • Use simulation tools (as a user or a consumer) to develop robust gating systems.
  • Interpret customer drawings, specifications, blueprints, and models (CAD/NX) to understand requirements
  • Improve process control
  • Use statistical tools to understand measurement systems and to use data to improve yields and reduce costs
  • Identify, evaluate and implement new process technologies that advance manufacturing and product capabilities
  • Document work procedures and processes
  • Work closely with other departments to ensure organization objectives are achieved
  • Help to identify ways to improve labor utilization and reduce cost
  • Routinely audit production lots for adherence to established techniques and to ensure the repeatability of the results
  • Develop, maintain, and teach “best practice” investment casting procedures and practices
  • Use structured problem solving tools and techniques to increase profitability and reduce scrap and rework
QUALIFICATIONS/Experience
  • BS in Mechanical Engineer or equivalent with 7-10 years relevant experience, or MSc with 5-7 years relevant experience, or PhD with 2-4 years relevant experience
  • Investment casting experience in Aerospace or IGT
  • Experience using solidification modeling applications (ProCast, Moldflow, Star CCM+ etc.)
  • Proven success in process improvements using mathematical and statistical problem-solving techniques to identify process variations in manufacturing processes with many contributing variables.
  • The successful candidate’s career will show increasing levels of responsibility. 


Skills/Knowledge
  • Strong working of aerospace specification and requirements
  • Experience developing investment castings in Inconel (eg IN718, 625, 713) and stainless steels (17-4PH, 15-5PH etc).
  • Proficiency in using Solidworks or related CAD package
  • Experience with Procast, Star CCM+, or equivalent
  • Knowledge of Six Sigma and Lean Manufacturing Principles
  • Good communications skills with customers and all levels of management and manufacturing
  • Excellent organizational, interpersonal and documentation skills
