My Matching Experience:
For 15 years as Mechanical Designer, my responsibilities were and still are to:
o Develop detailed design drawings and related specifications of mechanical equipment, according to engineering sketches design proposal specifications
o Analyze engineering sketches, specifications and related data drawings to define design factors, like size, shape and arrangement of parts
o Sketch rough layout of machine computes angles, weights, surface areas, dimensions, radii, clearances, tolerances, leverages and location of holes
o Compute magnitude, direction, and point of application of tension, compression, and bending forces, and develops geometric shape of machine parts to accommodate operating loads
o Draft detailed multiview drawings of machine and subassemblies, including specifications for gear ratios, bearing loads, and direction of moving parts, using engineering data standard references
o Modify machine design to correct operating deficiencies or to reduce production problems
o May measure machine parts during production to make sure compliance with design specifications, using precision measuring instruments
o May specialize in design specialized, customized equipment, machines, structures or machine tools.
o Design molds, tools, dies, jigs, or fixtures for use in manufacturing processes.
o May use computer-assisted design/drafting equipment software to develop designs.
