Mechanical Design Engineer


Job Description:

This position offers a great opportunity to work within a talented robotics engineering team who are working to automate physical processes that require sensing and judgement through the use of robotics and machine vision.

This position offers flexibility in home/on site working.

What you will be doing as a Mechanical Design Engineer…

  • Drive new concepts and innovations;
  • Setting up and processing data in a CAD environment in an iterative process;
  • Design of highly reliable mechanical components and subsystems taking into account manufacturability, cost, weight etc;
  • Use of analytical tools to drive and substantiate design decisions;
  • Selecting, working with and managing manufacturers and suppliers;
  • Ensuring schedules are met and both project and technical risks are mitigated;
  • Accountable for the quality and timely delivery of own work, ensuring that designs achieve product requirements.
  • Supporting the transition of designs into manufacture
  • Designing products comprised of both commercial off-the-shelf and bespoke components, using varying manufacturing techniques, taking an additive first approach, and using conventional manufacturing methods only when additive isn't suitable (for example machining, casting, extrusion, injection moulding)

  • The ability to work within a team on multiple projects, to prioritise tasks and to manage own time;
  • Self-motivated, team player, flexible and willing to learn
  • Used to working in a fast paced, changing, professional environment

Bonus points if you have...

  • Experience using additive manufacturing and rapid prototyping techniques
  • Practical FEA experience
  • Creation of Operating or Maintenance manuals.
  • Experience drafting to BS8888 with the use of GD&T
  • A good understanding of component selection
  • Knowledge in mechatronics
  • Background within solid mechanics, statics, fracture and fatigue
