The Mold Tooling Engineer will facilitate the fabrication of injection molding tools for plastic injection molding. This position will include conceptual design of tooling, project management of tooling fabrication, and implementation of tooling into the manufacturing processes.
This position will also be responsible for the following accountabilities:
Design manufacturing tools, including: Injection molding tools for plastic injection molding (both single and multiple cavities) of highly engineered plastic parts and design fixtures and jigs
Oversee tooling projects from conception through production start-up.
Work with tooling suppliers on schedules and project implementation.
Review product designs and make recommendations on tooling projects to ensure manufacturability, efficiency, and cost-savings.
Participate in tool design reviews.
Evaluate part design for manufacturability evaluating Mold Flow Analysis for mold filling, mold cooling and warpage analysis, and in molded stress analysis. Work with mechanical engineering to optimize part design
Oversee all record retention for tooling. This will include required follow-up on action items resulting from preliminary mold designs through production startups. This encompasses both internally designed and built tooling along with all sub-contracted work.
Monitor construction of injection molds.
Source tooling suppliers and interact with them on regular basis to ensure that services meet expectations.
Monitor project schedules with tooling suppliers and ensure that projects are completed on time and according to design.
Implement tooling modifications and improvements.
Work with reverse engineering principles and rapid prototype resources as needed.
Utilize basic understanding of dimensioning, tolerance and inspection practices.
May perform other duties as assigned.
Associates degree in technical related field or Journeyman Mold Maker
10 years tool and mold design experience in the injection molding field
Advanced proficiency in 3D modeling software-preferably solid works desired
Project management of tooling fabrication desired
Design of production fixtures, gages, and other related tooling
Badger Meter Inc. has been a company since 1905, and our primary focus as a company is to engineer, manufacture, and market flow measurement devices. We are most widely known for our Utility Water Meters (or the water meter you might find on your home)—this makes up about two-thirds of our business—and we also have a smaller third of our business that focuses on industrial or flow instrumentation ...metering—which is the same idea—you’re still measuring, monitoring, and controlling the flow of a substance, but instead of in the utility water industry, they serve industries such as oil/gas, construction, automotive, aerospace, etc.
We are headquartered in Milwaukee, WI and have additional manufacturing locations in Racine, WI, Tulsa, OK, Scottsdale, AZ, and have additional sales, support, and distribution staff/offices throughout the US. Throughout the US we have about 700 employees, with about 300-350 of those employees based out of our Milwaukee headquarters
