For our client in the low volume high-tech manufacturing industry we are looking for a Mechanical Lead Engineer (large frames)
Start :April may 2017 Duration :At least 12 months (option on fixed) Location :Eindhoven Language :English (preferably Dutch)
Are you eager to further develop your mechanical expertise? To be part of the state-of-the art technology innovation? If so, then a job of Lead Engineer in Mechanics could be the perfect next step in your career.
Specify, design and test main frame constructions and service mechanisms with a team of design engineers within the restrictions imposed by technical specifications, costs and planning. The team builds very large frames with very low tolerance levels (<10um). The frames need to be this precise because they form a vacuum chamber. They are welded (eBeam) under extreme conditions to minimize thermo impact. Somebody who has a background in precision engineering would definitely fit.
Job Description: ·Translate performance specifications into design specification for main frame constructions and service mechanisms. ·Creation and validation of new concepts. ·Prepare planning for modules and sub-modules. ·Optimization of the design, with a team of designers. ·Supplier contact for design and drawing reviews on manufacturability. ·Definition and execution of final tests to verify the specifications. ·Cooperation with module integration into the complex systems.
