CAD/CAM Technical Designer

CAD/CAM Technical Designers use their extensive software knowledge to produce complex projects involving 2D images (surface modeling) and 3D images (solid modeling). They analyze a problem using their mathematical and engineering backgrounds to come up with a creative solution. CAD/CAM Technical Designers work closely with Tool and Die and Engineering teams on a variety of tooling projects

Additional Work Competency:

  • Computer-Aided Machining
  • Precision Machining (Use of hand tools, layout, inspection, lathe, surface grinding, manual milling, CNC milling, EDM
  • Precision Die Making


Electro-Mechanical Technician

Mechatronics have a combined skill set: operate, test, maintain, or adjust automated electromechanical equipment.

Work Competency:

  • Handle mechanical and electrical tasks and are highly involved with maintaining automated equipment and state-of-the-art machinery
  • Mechatronics technicians apply their engineering knowledge to solve technical problems and maintain automated mechanical equipment
  • Install, inspect, troubleshoot and repair electrical, electronic and mechanical components


Plastic-Extrusion Process Technician

Plastic-Extrusion Process Technicians start up extrusion lines until profile quality standards are met.

Work Competency:

  • Requires specialized knowledge of materials, set up, start up, monitoring, specific tooling and equipment
  • Troubleshooting tasks are demanding and include preventing defects, dealing with inconsistent material, changing parameters, faulty equipment, and human error
  • Technicians ensure extrusion lines, auxiliary equipment and connected automated systems are set to regulation parameters, meet quality standards and production goals
  • Technicians provide feedback on extrusion tooling, assist process engineering, dial in tooling for optimal run time and quality, and apply all aspects of scientific extruding.


Tool and Die Maker

Tool and Die Makers work with computer-controlled machinery and mechanical equipment to cut, shape and finish tools, instruments and metal parts to precision levels

Work Competency:

  • Reading blueprints, sketches, specifications, or Computer-Aided Design (CAD) or Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) files for making tools and dies
  • Compute and verify dimensions, sizes, shapes, and tolerances of workpieces
  • Set up, operate, and disassemble conventional, manual, and computer numeric controlled (CNC) machine tools
  • File, grind and adjust parts so they fit together properly
  • Inspect completed tooling to ensure they meet specifications
  • Bench work and polish the surfaces of tools and dies
