Product Design Engineer:
Responsibilities: Daily tasks include direct communication with our sales team, customers and manufacturing department to develop new bottle designs and/or enhance our current products. Throughout this process our Product Design Engineers compile package requirements such as: volume, fill level, overflow, overall size, height, width depth, bottle gram weight, neck finish type and label stipulations. In addition, any performance requirements, such as top load and drop test, will need to be identified and qualified by the customer.
Bottle testing and measurements of sample containers will be conducted in our bottle lab to include: measuring overall bottle and neck finish dimensions, calculating volume, fill level, and overflow, and checking container weight, wall thickness and material distribution. These measurements will be taken using instruments such as an optical comparator, digital height gauge, calipers and Magna Mike.
SolidWorks is used to develop fully parametric 2D sketches. The solids and surfaces will be driven from these 2D sketches to develop new product bottle designs. 3D computer models will be generated, and in many cases 3D models will be produced on our in-house 3D printer. Once approved, a scaled cavity is created applying the required shrink rate to yield target container dimensions, from which finished molds will be produced. Qualifications: Familiarity with CAD or other related software is required. Bachelor’s degree in Engineering is a plus. SolidWorks experience a plus. Siemens NX experience a plus.
