TE Connectivity's Manufacturing Engineering Teams are process leaders for stamping, molding or assembly related topics, ensuring the processes are running at optimum levels for quality and output.
They are experts in mold tooling, die tooling, machining, and assembly techniques, possessing extensive knowledge of the associated manufacturing processes which may include the optimization and standardization of stamping / molding / assembly or other processes within the manufacturing environment.
Manufacturing Engineering Teams enable the TE business unit plants to reach TE Operating Advantage (TEOA) requirements, roll out Centers of Excellence (COE), Best Demonstrated Practices (BDP’s) and advise plants on tool and machine duplications / corrections / improvements.
They design and develop manufacturing process and automation platforms and apply them for the realization of new product developments as well as optimization of existing products already in production.
The Teams also support Product Development in the selection and optimization of tools for piece part production and the selection of the most suitable manufacturing concepts relative to planned manufacturing quantities, quality requirements and manufacturing location.
They act as interface between engineering and production to ensure manufacturability of new designs and smooth production ramp up as well as support the research & development teams to produce sample manufacturing equipment, product samples and prototypes.
What your background should look like :
Plastic extrusion engineers are responsible for working within the process of developing raw material or ingredient mixtures for melting and forming into plastic, working with melted materials to create plastic objects, designing molds, or a combination of these processes.
Plastic extrusion engineers melt raw materials into plastic dough and then push that dough into a mold to form other products.
Some engineers design devices to enhance the melting and molding process and others experiment with blends of raw materials to make plastic products more flexible or safer for the environment.
Plastic extrusion engineers, like materials engineers, require a bachelor's degree. Those hoping to pursue this career should demonstrate an interest in math and science as well as an affinity for working with tools.
Many plastic extrusion engineers also work on creating plastic ingredient formulas to produce a desired effect. For example, melting several raw chemical additives might make the plastic more or less flexible.
The thickness and flexibility of the plastic determines what it can be made into. Engineers develop multiple formulas to make different products for each industry, such as medical equipment for the healthcare industry.
