This is a Contract position in Los Angeles, CA posted March 28, 2021.

Industry leading Aerospace castings and mechanical components manufacturer has immediate need for Mechanical Engineer / Dimensional Engineer. Will be assigned to New Product Development engineering team or Production Engineering team working cooperatively with manufacturing to develop robust processes and tooling to support the company’s growth in the industrial and aerospace investment casting markets. Individuals identified as dimensional will be exposed to the latest tooling concepts using modeling software.

Problem solving, the concepts, and tools of problem solving are essential to the job. Engineers will be required to: identify/define problems, perform root cause analysis, and implement solutions to problems that affect yield, rework, and overall quality of the product using a standardized approach (PDCA, Six-Sigma…). Knowledge and application of statistics. Occasionally take a leadership role in resolving cross-functional problems.


  • Responsible for control of dimensional quality of casting. Continuous improvement of process/product such that the castings meet or exceed customer expectations
  • Responsible for the construction of all dies (shrink factor analysis), ga ges, and support tooling needed to produce and inspect cores, wax patterns, and castings
  • Communicate with tooling vendors to design concepts for wax pattern die, the build of gate dies and support fixtures
  • Interface with tooling vendors and purchasing to produce a quality tool/die at a competitive price
