Mechanical Design Engineer
Primary duty is to design mechanical frames, assemblies, and details for custom manufacturing assembly machines. The design engineer will be provided specifications for a machine and its purpose. Working with other engineering departments (controls and software primarily), the mechanical design engineer will produce a mechanical bill of materials along with a complete drawing set for that machine. Working with program management, purchasing, and build departments during the design and commissioning phases of a machine.
-- be responsible for the design and commissioning of mechanical assemblies and sub-systems.
-- evaluate and choose mechanical components as requested by a customer and as appropriate for specific machine designs.
-- design and detail tooling, frames, and weldments using raw materials as a source (tool steel, aluminum, etc).
-- design mechanical assemblies that incorporate purchased components such as air cylinders, proximity switches, rails and bearings, spindles and motors, and other commercial off-the-shelf elements.
-- produce detail drawings that permit the machine’s necessary components to be purchased and raw materials to be machined and assembled.
-- update all mechanical drawings as red-line changes become necessary during the commissioning and debug phases of a machine.
-- assist in the commissioning and debug of machines.
-- learn new assembly processes (using pre-prepared documentation) and design mechanical assemblies and details to accomplish these processes to the customer’s satisfaction.
-- work closely with other engineers to solve machine design and debug problems (including non-mechanical issues).
