Job Profile

The company is seeking an Engineering Technician who will work alongside manufacturing engineers, maintenance personnel, toolmakers, and production personnel to implement engineering projects in the plant.

Educational Level

  • Not mentioned, yet a High School Diploma will be a plus

Work Experience

  • Experience with machine fixture and jig design
  • Must be familiar with creating CAD models and drawings; experience in Autodesk Inventor (preferred)


  • Assists manufacturing engineering and machine operators with complex tooling assembly component storage and organization, including 5S tasks.
  • Continues the engineering initiative of cataloging and fully implementing tooling items into the engineering documentation library and SAP Plant Maintenance software.
  • Develops hands-on competency in a unique graphical user interface (GUI) timing chart to control servo-actuated Bihler NC machine.
  • Develops hands-on competency in Burndy Littleton’s patented tooling system for progressive metal forming. Gains the ability to perform die set-ups and machine set-ups, and to perform process monitoring and machine tuning.
  • Orders perishable tooling from vendors. Receives tooling re-order requests from operators, finds documentation for tooling, sends documentation to the vendor for a quote, receives a quote, and issues a thoroughly-filled-out requisition to the purchasing department.
  • Reads and interprets production drawings to gain knowledge of critical product dimensions. Develops understanding of how product dimensions relate to process parameters and tooling dimensions, and assists engineers in new tooling fabrication and implementation.
  • Select appropriate tooling for various CNC production tasks.
  • Support CNC manufacturing.
  • Support tooling development initiatives.
  • Work alongside manufacturing engineering to analyze, identify, design, and implement improved manufacturing techniques and processes in CNC work cells.
  • Works alongside manufacturing engineering and operators to troubleshoot problems that arise with the implementation of any of the above tasks.
  • Write, modify, review, and adjust CNC programs for connector part production on both CNC turret and swiss style lathes and vertical milling machines.
  • Support automated manufacturing and assembly processes.
  • Aid manufacturing engineering in defining requirements and guidelines for replacement equipment and processes from outside vendors.
  • Perform time studies to verify current production sequence documentation is accurate to the actual manufacturing processes.
  • Provide PLC programming assistance to read, write, and debug automated production issues.
  • Support process improvements associated with production machinery and documentation.
  • Work alongside manufacturing engineering to analyze, identify, and implement replacement machinery to improve the throughput of various production processes.
  • Work Alongside manufacturing engineering to analyze, identify, design, and implement new or replacement automation components to improve automated production output.
  • Work alongside manufacturing engineering to identify and reduce production bottlenecks associated with automated production sequences.
  • Work with machine operators and manufacturing engineering to provide continuous improvement support to optimize the production process.

Additional Duties

  • Work with the engineering team on the development of new products.
  • Performs all tasks in a manner that does not impede the production schedule.


  • Ability to converse with toolmakers and skilled setup personnel to understand critical tooling information, and to convey this information using engineering drawing conventions.
  • Ability to use Microsoft Excel for project tracking and documentation indexing.
  • Leadership: must be comfortable implementing changes in an environment where change is difficult.
  • Must be able to maintain a clean and organized workbench while simultaneously dealing with articles that do not fit into categories.
  • Must be able to take repeatable measurements with digital vernier calipers, micrometers, and gage blocks.
  • Must have a basic understanding of cold-forming physics.
  • Must have thick skin. Must react to potentially challenging situations in a way that diminishes or resolves conflict rather than amplifies it.
  • Must take responsibility for project successes. Must have the persistence required to complete technical tasks. Must proactively continue to check for task completion if the task has been delegated to another party.

Bonus Skills (valued but not required)-

  • Ability to conduct bulk computations (macros) in Microsoft Excel.
  • Ability to make insightful recommendations for process improvements, and to develop an implementation plan for these recommendations.
  • Ability to perform basic electrical diagnosis with basic tools (test light, multimeter, etc.) and read electrical diagrams.
  • Conversant knowledge of material compositions (D2, S7, 4140, etc.) and Rockwell Scale hardness for tooling applications.
  • General understanding of control systems and input/output logic as it relates to production machinery.
  • Understanding of fits and tolerances (press fit, slip fit, etc.)
  • Understanding of GD&T.
