Joining us as Design & Product Development Engineer, you will construct cost estimates for new open die and closed die products, design tools and create models and drawings.
We're looking for an individual who has experience of working in a manufacturing / production environment and who has the ability to design forgings, dies, tools, jigs and fixtures for closed die presses and hammers. With the ability to create 3D models and drawings in Siemens NX (training can be given), you will have excellent problem-solving skills and an understanding of hot forging processes and methods. We'd also like you to be comfortable liaising with customers with regard to forged output and with contractors as part of the estimation and die production process.
An understanding of CNC machining and measuring processes is desirable, as is forging simulation software experience (QForm). It would also be a distinct advantage if you had reverse engineering skills and if you had experience of other common design software and programs.
