Role DescriptionAs a Mechanical Engineer you drive concept creation and decision making and translate the chosen concept into an integrated mechanical construction. You design and validate the construction of a module of an appliance and further detail the parts in 3D and 2D towards final technical product Documentation. You work on product development from concept to detailed design in a team consisting of mechanical engineers, function engineers, application research, process engineers, electronic engineers etc
ResponsibilitiesAs a Mechanical Engineer in the ME Team you will be responsible for: • Creating one or more alternatives for a module construction • Driving concept creation and decision making. • Module owner • Proof that your construction fulfills the function(s) and requirements under all load cases (calculation, simulation, tolerance analysis, proto’s + testing) • Detail 3D and 2D files incorporating Design for Manufacturing and Design for Assembly requirements and archiving in C PLM system (Windchill) • Planning and realizing your own work and manage the interfaces with other modules/parts • Re-use of existing knowledge (known concepts) • Document your choices and proof in a Design History File (evidence document)
Requirements• You have an education on Bachelor (HBO) level in Mechanical Engineering (Wtb) / Industrial Product Design (IPO) with minimal 5 years of experience as a mechanical engineer in designing mass produced Consumer Products • You are familiar with design and manufacturing of mechanical constructions in plastic and metal; experience with high precision metal constructions and drive mechanisms is a plus. • Specific Experience: knowledge in specific competence area (eg. watertight appliances, UI, M&F) is a plus. • You have the ability to proof construction concepts by calculation, simulation and/or prototypes • You are familiar with state-of-the-art development techniques and CAD. You have knowledge of the design of mechanical constructions in plastic and/or metal and preferably you are familiar with the manufacturability aspects (mould/tooling design), analysis (strength, stiffness) and drive mechanisms; • You have expert skill level in CAD NX 10 • You have experience in working in (international) multi-disciplinary projects, preferably in Business to Consumer; • You show drive and are quality driven. Experience with Design for Six Sigma is a plus; • The ability to balance innovation and practical realization; • You are able to think on conceptual level but are also hands-on. • Determination in decision making and independence; • You are ambitious, have leadership skills and are a team player. • Showing good coordination, communication skills (writing and presentation in both Dutch and English)
