Mechanical Design Engineer

This is a new position to expand our small team of mechanical design engineers. The role will cover the following four stages of product design and development:

  • Concept Design
  • Prototype Build
  • Testing of Concept
  • Product Release

We are looking for the following attributes:

  • Self-starter
  • Capable of issue resolution and reports upward by exception rather than rule
  • Aspires to world class manufacture
  • Does not accept current state as future state
  • Team player.

The component elements of design and development include (but not limited to):

  • Creation of concept designs.
  • Risk Analysis via dFMEA, pFMEA.
  • Creation of top level product code assemblies (GA’s).
  • Ensuring designs are “design for manufacture” and cost effective.
  • “Configurable” designs that allow saleable options to be selected / de-selected that allows seamless translation to purchasing and production.
  • Completion of all piece part drawings for release to Supplier manufacture.
  • Creation of relevant sub-assemblies within the overall “GA” of the final product.
  • Ensuring Bills of Materials are 100% accurate.
  • Handover of product files to manufacturing (assembly aids, drawings etc).
  • Creating build sequences and identification of assembly CTQ’s (critical to quality).
  • Generating product build routers and check lists to ensure product meets design intent.
  • First point of contact for assembly issues to ensure issues are dealt with in a timely manner (both new and legacy product).
  • Design of be-spoke jigs and fixture.

Interfaces with:

  • Electrical Engineering – mechanical design must interface with electrical design & vice versa.
  • Software Engineering – mechanical / electrical design supports control strategy.
  • Purchasing – component designs can be sourced from existing supply chain.
  • Production – ensure designs are “production” ready for product launch.
  • Test Department – ensures legacy issues are identified and engineered out.
  • Sales Department – provides input to contract review process when required.
  • Application Lab – provides input to application enquiries when required.
  • Educated to at least HNC level.
  • Demonstrable experience in product design and development.
  • Knowledge of Autocad Inventor (2D/3D) is essential.
