Tool Engineering is a career field that specializes in designing custom mechanical solutions to support manufacturing, assembly, machine tools, inspection, and test throughout the product lifecycle. Tooling Engineers are the subject matter experts who provide innovative fixturing, gages, automation and machine design solutions. - The use of these items provides a consistent, safe, ergonomic means to assemble, lift, and transport production hardware. - Tool Engineers use computer aided design technology to generate 3-dimensional models and technical drawing packages. Tool Engineers are responsible for all aspects of designing, documentation, procuring and integrating assembly Tooling into a highly complex manufacturing environment. Tool Engineers oversee projects from development to implementation and strive to incorporate safe, ergonomic, error-proofed, and innovative solutions into the factory.
