Mold Design Engineer
Jabil is a $17B diversified electronics manufacturing solutions provider and we are actively recruiting for a [[title]] to join our team. If you thrive in a dynamic, rapidly evolving and demanding environment you will be an excellent fit in our organization.
The Mold Designer position at NyproMold is a challenging position with many responsibilities. There are three primary challenges.
- It's a role where you are required to receive, request, and track down information in the form of CAD files, specifications, verbal requests, technical data, as well as other forms of customer desired deliverables from multiple sources and translate that information using NyproMold standards as well as your mold design and CAD capabilities to produce a mold design that will result in a mold that when built to those design specifications produces the customers product to the quality specifications desired, at the cycle time estimated, and performs reliably (with only normal maintenance) for the life of the mold to at least the number of cycles warranted to the customer.
- Creating a mold design that can be efficiently and cost effectively manufactured. Communicating with the manufacturing team, learning and understanding manufacturing techniques and applying that knowledge within the design is critical. Under design issues can result in very serious consequences and over design results in high cost. The challenge is designing in high speed performance and long low maintenance mold life.
- Meeting and communicating design delivery commitments. In order to maintain a mold delivery schedule we must maintain deliveries in our mold design area as well as the manufacturing area. Setting milestone schedule goals, measuring against those goals and working corrective actions when issues arise to get the schedule on track is extremely important. The core need here is for good consistent productivity, communication, and on-time mold design delivery.
- Mold design quality - performance to project deliverables (product quality, cycle time, mold longevity, and maintenance costs).
- Mold design manufacturability
- Mold design delivery - Review and meet design delivery objectives. Communicate risk to design delivery and initiate and assist in implementation of corrective action plans to get back on track when there are delivery issues.
