What to Expect

The Dimensional Engineer will work within the Metrology team under the quality group supporting every production line of Gigafactory Texas. This engineer will be reporting to the Metrology Manager and work closely with Metrology technicians. The primary focus of the role is to perform dimensional investigations as well as working with Design and Manufacturing groups to build and inspect new line's tooling.

What You'll Do

  • Design and implement automated and manual data collection processes
  • Act as the specialist in ‘applied metrology' and provide support to manufacturing and design areas in the development of appropriate measurement methods, including researching and recommending new technologies, analyzing existing measurement methods, and training as required
  • Work closely with Metrology Technicians to improve current processes and develop new methods for unique measurement challenges
  • Work with Manufacturing Engineers, Design Engineers and Quality Engineers to understand their needs and develop measurement techniques, processes and procedures which meet Tesla's requirements
  • Work closely with the Metrology Manager on continuously improving the Labs' processes, procedures, datasheets and measurement techniques
  • Provide dimensional expertise to support improvement projects (cycle time, efficiency, safety, etc)
  • Analyze and break down dimensional data to identify the source of problems (Subassembly, Tooling, Supplier part, etc)
  • Actively monitor the dimensional accuracy of the drive unit and battery product thru various measurement systems (CMM, Faro, Check fixture, Romer, Laser Tracker, 3D scanner, etc)
  • Provide day to day production support on quality concerns and develop and implement short/long term countermeasure to quality problems while maintaining operational efficiency
  • Standardize progress by developing, deploying, and training others on dimensional engineering best practices
  • Support incoming inspection correlation with various external suppliers
  • Provide expertise on GD&T best practices and closely work with Quality and Design engineer to make sure that datum scheme and tolerances are accurate for the form, fit and function of the assemblies
  • What You'll Bring

  • Bachelor's degree in Mechanical or Manufacturing Engineering
  • Minimum of 3 years of experience in quality, metrology or design engineering
  • Excellent understanding of GD&T and ability to create datum strategies that minimize tolerance stack-up in critical areas
  • Strong mechanical intuition and extensive hands-on experience modifying tooling, fixtures, etc
  • Ability to read and interpret mechanical drawings and make correction if needed
  • Experienced with CAD design software (CATIA is a must)
  • Experienced using measurement tools for root cause diagnostics (Faro arm, CMM, 3D scanner, Polyworks)
  • Strong understanding of statistics to identify critical process parameters
  • From this employer
