Job Summary/Purpose

As a Mechanical Engineer, you will be a key member of an interdisciplinary team formed to innovate, design and install robotic automation solutions. Automation solutions concepted will include a full range of mechanisms, motion control, pneumatics, end-of-arm tooling for turn-key cells to be installed at our four North American foundry operations. Cross functional experience and work will be encouraged for development! Work will be performed in a newly opened warehouse space dedicated to automation machinery development. It is planned to be an engineering playground for equipment design and development.

We pride ourselves in our results-oriented culture of innovation and we offer a number of career focused benefits for the employee:

  • Challenging, creative work environment in a dedicated innovation center
  • Access to tools / controls / equipment focused on 6 axis robot cell & tool development
  • The candidate will have the opportunity to work under the supervision world-class cross functional team of engineers.
  • Flexible work schedule
  • Competitive benefits package

PRINCIPLE ACCOUNTABILITIES

Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Lead mechanical design work to develop new and innovative robotic automation cells.
  • Apply theoretical knowledge of design and mechanical engineering principals to design electro-mechanical systems related to mechanical function, structural analysis, aesthetic design, etc. Develop general arrangements, space studies, as necessary.
  • Perform hands-on work with mechanical components and systems. Personally, or collaboratively perform construction and test of prototypes or proof of concept models.
  • Execute design iterations to create reliable and long-life products
  • Translate machine design compliance, design requirements, and machine safety as required per project
  • Direct the preparation of design drawings and specifications, and perform required project management tasks focused on fabrication of designs & concepts.

JOB KNOWLEDGE/SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE
