Job Description:

The Role:

Collaborate with Product Design, Simulation, and ProcessEngineering, to establish High Pressure Die Casting tooling requirements,creating fully detailed 3D CAD tooling design models for die fabrication by toolingsuppliers.


  • Develop 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.
  • Innovate 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.
  • Mechanical design experience. 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.
  • 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.
