Mechanical Design Engineer
Design custom machinery to enhance manufacturing operations for specific customer applications. The engineer will address unique problems, utilize SolidWorks to design necessary machinery, specify manufacturing steps, select purchased components, oversee construction, conduct system tests, troubleshoot issues, and ensure proper installation at the customer's site.
Systems often incorporate frame structures, motors, pumps, shafts, bearings, hydraulics, pneumatics, electro-mechanical sensors, electrical panels, wiring, and enclosures. Complex computer controls and programming developed in-house will be utilized to manage the customer's process. Mechanical engineers will collaborate with Electrical and Controls Engineering team members to seamlessly integrate the entire system.
Engineers will oversee projects from design to fabrication, assembly, testing, and installation. A solid background in machine design, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, strength of materials, material science, kinematics, and dynamics is required.
Practical hands-on experience in building or repairing machinery, such as farm equipment, automobiles, motorcycles, or similar, will demonstrate practical knowledge and understanding of mechanical and electrical systems, as well as creative problem-solving skills.
Our team of experienced design engineers fosters a collaborative atmosphere for idea generation, problem-solving, and feedback within the design group. As a result, entry-level designers quickly gain the knowledge necessary for success.
