Job Description

Mechanical Design Engineer - Test & Calibration Instruments

Due to a truly rapid growth phase, a fantastic opportunity has arisen for a design engineer to join this world leader in the design and development of Pressure Sensors and instruments.

As a Mechanical Design Engineer, you'll find yourself in a dynamic, goal-oriented environment, working with the newest and most innovative technologies in the energy industry. All of the sensors and instrument products are developed inhouse, and you'll be exposed to the whole development lifecycle, as well as getting the buzz of seeing your products manufactured and sold to our customers.

Role Summary/Purpose:

This is an amazing opportunity for an early career Mechanical Design Engineer to learn and develop into a role in the Test & Calibration Instruments Team to design complex instrumentation products and pressure controllers used in aerospace ground support equipment, metrology, process control and high volume industrial test.

Essential Responsibilities :
* Design and validation of mechanical assemblies / fixturing and enclosures to agreed customer and product specifications and project deadlines in both plastic and metal.
* Development and release of design documentation, including: Mechanical component and assembly drawings, Hydraulic and pneumatic circuit diagrams, System assembly drawings and User Manuals
* Participate in FMEA and Process Mapping activities to identify / minimize design risks and optimize design outcome.
* Assure proper documentation of technical data generated for the assigned projects and / or tasks consistent with engineering policies and procedures
* Contribute to longer-term design process improvements to drive productivity and efficiency.
