As a Senior, Tooling Engineer at Magic Leap, your primary responsibility will be to collaborate with Hardware Engineering, Strategic Sourcing, and our tooling partners to design, produce, and qualify mass production tooling. This role will be responsible for ensuring the creation of the highest quality tooling, and execution that provides a seamless support of demand. The responsibilities of this role include:
- Design for Manufacturing: 3D model interrogations to provide insight on manufacturability per design intent.
- MoldFlow simulations to influence material selections, gating schemes/tool designs, and provide detailed presentations to convey design intent to both suppliers and design teams.
- Tooling Approvals: Manage digital information regarding all tooling to verify compliance to spec. This includes 3D design review and approval for primary tooling, as well as all ancillary pre- and post-process fixtures such as end of arm tooling, load cells, CNC fixtures, paint mask tooling, inspection fixtures, etc.
- Review and provide advice on part print creation using GD&T principles to facilitate logical and efficient inspection criteria.
- In region FOT Coverage: Travel to regional sites abroad to assist in tooling bring-up, proving targeted quality specifications are met, and provide approval of parts for ship-to-build quantities.
- Perform Process Optimizations when needed using statistical methodologies.
- Change Management: Coordinate engineering changes between mechanical teams and relevant suppliers to meet goals for spec compliance, cost targets, and build schedules.
- Managing tool build and process scheduling of all custom tooling from construction kick off through qualification phase, and provide schedule metrics and milestone status to upper management.
- Work with Strategic Sourcing to generate tooling cost models for initial manufacturing and subsequent ECNs for all custom tooling.
- BS degree in either mechanical engineering, plastics engineering, polymer science, Or equivalent industry experience.
- Minimum of 10 years of broad experience designing, fabricating, debugging and launching tooling in high volume manufacturing.
- Experience with SPC, DOE, and GD&T principles
- Excellent knowledge of manufacturing processes for thermoplastics, thermosets, metal stamping, CNC machining, die casting, thixo molding, and Metal Injection Molding.
- Experience in 3D modeling/advanced surfacing for DFM and tool design reviews.
- Experience in plastic molding simulations using Moldflow, to complete predictive analysis on component quality.
- Experience with processing of molding, stamping, casting, CNC machining, etc.
- Proficient in statistical analysis for optimization and qualification of custom tooling.
- Computer literacy and a basic understanding and knowledge of computer based analytical tools (i.e., Spreadsheet, Word & Database, PowerPoint, JMP or Minitab)
- Excellent written, presentation, and interpersonal skills are required.
- Experience with high-volume world-class design and manufacturing techniques for consumer electronic products
- Travel domestically and internationally to supplier sites as projects require
Additional Experience is a Plus:
- A working knowledge of OR practical experience with metrology equipment such as OGP, CMM, and CAV.
- Practical experience in the application of embedded model-based definition, (PMI Data), and or GD&T Advisor.
- Use of Structured Light Scanning such as the ATOS Scanner, and GOM software.
- Six Sigma Black Belt or Green Belt trained in either LEAN or DFSS
- Practical experience managing and performing process DOE’s
- All your information will be kept confidential according to Equal Employment Opportunities guidelines.
