Plastics engineer

Plastics engineers are responsible for the entire manufacturing procedure in plastic goods production. They take charge of material preparation and precise adjustment of the machines and facilities and ensure that production runs smoothly.

Plastics engineers prepare the raw materials and control and monitor the machines that are used to mix and preform the compounds and elements of the plastic material required. They check the condition of the plastic material and, using various means of measurement, determine whether all of the necessary properties are correct.
