Job Description:/h3:
POSITION: R and D Titanium Project and Process Engineer
The Project and Process Engineer for the Materials R and D, will have his/her initial focus on titanium/aluminum powder manufacturing, and uses good engineering practices to improve product production processes with regards to safety, health, environmental, quality, and productivity, while minimizing wastes and costs.
He/she will evaluate, develop, and implement titanium powder manufacturing and processing routes.
He/she is responsible for creating and communicating a deep understanding of the correlation between process parameters and processing hardware for Titanium metal alloy powder manufacturing technologies, such as induction plasma spheriodization and electrode induction melting with gas atomization. This requires dealing with pre and post treatment of such powders.
He/she typically serves as a member of the facility leadership team and possesses a thorough understanding of standards, concepts, practices, and procedures for metal powder production operations.
The process engineer is responsible to initiate and lead design of experiments (DoE), explore new powder manufacturing routes and technologies, establish process procedures and work instructions, write process specifications, and handle special safety or lean related Titanium projects. Future projects may entail similar work with aluminum or other Ti alloy formulations.
He/she supports the R and D laboratory supervisor, product portfolio manager (PPM), and product change manager (PCM) in various engineering and administrative aspects from maintaining process documentation, carrying out audits but also preparing quotations for experimental powders to customers.
Another task for the process engineer is the support of the Manufacturing Process and Product engineering group during scale:up of new products and operations product trouble shooting.
R and D Titanium Project and Process Engineer is responsible, but not limited to the following:
:Perform the duties identified for this job description to the best of your abilities at all times, taking sole responsibility for your actions and the results thereof.
:Ensure Environmental, Safety and Health, quality, inventory, and productivity goals are met.
:Capable of improving and enhancing the correlation between process parameters and powder characteristics by expanding process knowledge base for spherical Titanium alloy powders by various manufacturing techniques.
:Enhance the Titanium powder yield by way of re:designing spheriodization equipment, atomization nozzle, melt furnace (Cold:wall), tundish and other aspects. Explore ways of improving
production/operations powder manufacturing process in order to reduce production cost and increase manufacturing efficiency in spherical powder production.
:Explore new Ti and Ti alloy powder manufacturing technologies, keep abreast of cutting edge powder manufacturing technologies and equipment/
:Transfer technology from pilot equipment to manufacturing. Support manufacturing process engineers during the scale:up of new products
:Actively participate and assist in production equipment trouble shooting.
:Generate, maintain and update equipment manuals and processing procedures.
:Generate engineering reports, status reviews and presentations.
:Provide assistance for CAPEX, lean projects and safety projects as well as customer quotation requests.
:Design and direct the testing or control of processing procedures. Gather process data. Analyze process capabilities and efficiencies.
:Review, evaluate, and/or recommend materials, instruments, and equipment.
:Read, write, and/or review standard operating procedures, standard capital projects, purchase requisitions and purchase orders.
:Analyze root causes, non:conformances, and/or complaints. Implement corrective and preventive actions to eliminate to recurren
