Job Description

Mechanical Design Engineers

Competitive

Permanent

Wiltshire

 

Description

In this business we are encouraged to think differently, challenge convention and be unafraid to make mistakes. We are proud to be authentic, different and pioneers. We are driven by a desire to solve real problems and improve everyday lives with intuitive solutions that do more, but use less. Family owned, we are not restricted by conventional thinking; we explore, discover and learn for ourselves. Never satisfied, we believe everything can always be made better.

 

Accountabilities

The business offers a unique opportunity for a talented Research Engineer to work on the mechanical design and integration of their Digital Motors (DDMs). Joining the Technical Research Team, the successful applicant will be part of the wider Research Department based in Wiltshire, U.K. The team have been pioneers in the industry with very high speed / high power density compressor motors that are highly efficient, cost-effective and robust for more than 15 years. These motors are conceived in the UK and are manufactured at their state-of-the-art facilities in Singapore and Philippines. The team has ambitious growth plans in 2021 in order to deliver an expanding range of high-performance motors into existing and future product categories within the next few years.

 

Responsibilities;

Own the delivery of motor components which provide market-leading performance and robustly satisfy the design requirements

Use systems engineering and engineering design process techniques to efficiently generate and record design concepts and down-selection rationale, supporting architecture definition and detailed design of new motors

Generate creative and technically-sound solutions to multi-physical challenges, using your own engineering knowledge and collaborating with technical experts across all physical disciplines

Deliver motor components from early concept to proof of principle, ensuring design for manufacture and assembly (DFM and DFA)

Develop and own the master 3D CAD and engineering drawings for motor components and assemblies along with assembly fixtures and tooling

Develop innovative and novel concepts with high value IP

Understand and comply with relevant International Standards

Follow best practice and improve upon existing processes within the team where possible

 

Skills

Required;

Degree in Mechanical Engineering or other relevant engineering or scientific discipline (2:1 or higher) with a basic level of industrial experience in the design and development of mechanical and/or electro-mechanical systems

Ability to generate concepts from a blank sheet of paper

Sound understanding of physics and ability to work from first principles

Capable of performing hand calculations to provide initial design direction and confidence in simulation results

Desire to learn and gain understanding of relevant physics outside your own area of expertise, in order to suggest routes for achieving an optimised balance between different considerations

Capable of using 3D computer aided design (CAD) software packages to model components in 3D and draft engineering drawings.

Basic understanding of GD&T

Able to communicate appropriate, concise and accurate information in written and verbal formats

Able to work collaboratively within multi-disciplinary project teams

 

Desirable;

Strong knowledge of mechanical principles and mechanical design considerations for electromechanical devices

Awareness of other engineering disciplines such as aerodynamics, thermodynamics, electrical, electronic and electromagnetic systems

Awareness of power system design, including motors, transmissions and energy storage solutions

Ability to carry out basic finite element analysis with appreciation of how results can be verified through testing

Understanding of manufacturing processes and their associated limitations (e.g. moulding, stamping, forming, machining, winding, welding etc)

Experience in using any industry-standard manufacturing simulation software, especially for moulding processes

Understanding of materials science

Experience using Siemens NX, ANSYS Workbench and Siemens Teamcenter

Awareness of tolerance stack analysis

Appreciation of statistics and robust design techniques

Confident in building fixtures/jigs for assembly and testing and aware of FRACAS process

Practical “hands-on” ability, supporting technicians developing build processes and test rigs

Understanding of design verification approaches and ability to define suitable test methods

Understanding of physical failure methods and approaches to root cause analysis

Experience of making design calculation tools in MATLAB and Excel
