  • Support development of Weld Procedure Specifications and Procedure Qualification Records.
  • Product development, manufacturing, welding process and system improvement, sales support, and other activities related to the Additive Solutions business.
  • Supporting the creation of technical data sheets for marketing additive materials.
  • Working with customers on projects for replacing traditional component materials.
  • Primary duties to perform this job include:
  • Perform research and development of welding processes and weld metallurgy as applied to large scale metal additive manufacturing with emphasis on materials properties characterization and weld quality.
  • Communicate technical detail of various metal alloy systems including low carbon steels, high strength low allow steels, stainless steels, nickel alloys and others to internal and external customers.
  • Assist in the development of new welding consumables, welding procedures, and material properties characterization to enable additive applications.
  • Support the production of large scale metal additive parts via robotic welding systems.
  • Execute welding procedure and personnel qualifications according to various code standards to facilitate quality and performance improvements within the organization.
  • Conduct evaluations of additive feedstock product performance; develop/refine test methods and standards, as applicable, to support new and existing additive feedstocks.
  • Apply engineering and scientific principles in the design and execution of development projects. Assignments are broad in scope, requiring originality and ingenuity within the specific field of specialization. Typically works as part of a cross-functional team on projects of larger scope and greater complexity.
