Industry leader in high volume production of screw machine products has an immediate opening for a Manufacturing Engineer.
This posiiton offers competitive wages and a comprehensive benefits package, including health insurance (medical, dental, vision), a 401k program, life insurance, paid holidays and vacation and best of all a true 4-day work week.
Develops and implements optimal, cost-effective manufacturing processes in accordance with product specifications and quality standards. Recommends and implements improvements to production processes, methods and controls. Coordinates manufacturing launch for new or revised products. Priorities include process improvement, problem resolution, project management and employee training.
Examples of Essential Functions:
- Manages the transition of the new product from engineering to production, provides technical support to production personnel.
- Supports productivity initiatives by improving manufacturing processes and methods resulting in cost reductions.
- Designs and develops and/or sources tools for current or new product.
- Identifies best method of manufacturing.
- Evaluates manufacturing process for proper methods and develops tooling and machine layout.
- Evaluates new equipment to aide production and reduce costs; establishes equipment specifications and ordering timelines, implements equipment or work process upgrades.
- Prepares reports regarding the status of manufacturing engineering projects, process recommendations, quote specifications, cost justifications, statistical process control indices, outside purchased inventory, and capital expense justifications.
- Recommends vendors, materials, processes and optimal process instructions, interim production options, and documentation package requirements.
