As a Design and Development Engineer, you will be involved in a wide range of design activities which will enhance and develop our product offering.
Your day-to-day activities will include 3D solid modelling using SolidWorks 2013, designing castings, forgings, pressings and fabrications.
Undertaking design calculations for load distribution and stresses using MS Excel, you will produce finite element analysis of 3D models and produce manufacturing drawings.
You will design test rigs and undertake product testing using a 1,000 kN test machine. Following this, you will prepare test reports including graphs and test data.
Additionally, you will collate prices into product costings, prepare product specifications, formulate answers to technical questions and produce illustrations and technical data for the Marketing Team.
A proven track record of developing new industrial products for manufacturing companies operating in the commercial sector
Experience of 3D modelling and producing engineering drawings using SolidWorks 3D and/or FEA
An HND or equivalent qualification in an engineering-related discipline
As a Design and Development Engineer, you'll be highly enthusiastic, proactive and innovative.
Creative and free-thinking, you must also be a focused team player with a hands-on approach and an articulate, friendly nature.
Experience of all aspects of design projects from concept through prototype test and evaluation to final production tooling and finished product would be beneficial to your application.
A degree would also be advantageous.
