We are always reviewing applications/resumes looking for dedicated, honest and hard-working people to join our team!
Daily tasks will include direct communication with our sales team, customers and manufacturing; a key to Mid-America Machining success. Working together with product design engineers you will use SolidWorks 2023 to develop fully parametric 2D sketches. The solids will be driven from these 2D sketches to develop 3D mold designs. Within these 3D designs we develop the cooling line/channels that best suit the container shape to provide the customer with optimized cooling for enhanced cycle time. You will also be required to design venting, scrap chambers, neck finish and adapt the mold to the customer blow mold machine platform. In some cases we also design die tooling to provide optimal wall thickness in the end product. Within the design of the neck finish you will be required to research shrink rates (within company history) to apply these to an excel embedded design table which drives dimensions to yield in spec containers. Bachelors in Engineering and SolidWorks experience a plus.
