CAD Design Engineer High Pressure Die Casting tools/CAD Konstrukteur für Druckgiesswerkzeuge- Gigafactory Berlin (m/w/d)


April 21, 2021

The Role:
As a 3D Design Engineer, you will be collaborate with Product Design, Simulation, and Process Engineering, to establish High Pressure Die Casting tooling requirements and create fully detailed 3D CAD (Catia) design models for die fabrication by tooling suppliers.
  • Create the CAD design of new die cast tooling from concept thru production, including split lines, slides, ejection, vent and cooling system (e.g. waterlines in tool steel as well as internal and external plumbing)
  • Provide feedback to Product Design Engineers to achieve the right balance between product performance and manufacturability from a tooling perspective (e.g. draft angles, rib/boss geometry, etc.)
  • Incorporate input from Flow and Thermal Simulation Engineers into the die design
  • Capture feedback from Casting Process Engineers into new and replacement dies
  • Develop new ideas to push the envelope of performance (cycle time, yield, uptime) and minimize risk
  • Provide technical oversight of tooling suppliers
  • Assist in the development of tooling design and fabrication schedules, then execute accordingly
  • Manage parallel, rather than serial, product design, die design, and die fabrication timelines

  • Mechanical Engineering degree, or equivalent in experience
  • Proven record of experience in designing mechanical equipment, fixturing and tooling in CAD
  • Strong to expert level 3D CAD skills, including advanced surfacing and large assemblies
  • CATIA V5+ fluency preferred
  • If no CATIA experience, must be able to learn and adopt it quickly as it will be the design package used
  • Experience with aluminum High Vacuum High Pressure thin wall structural die casting tool design highly preferred, but other relevant tooling or mechanical design experience can be considered
  • Fluent languages skills in German or English language are required
