Do you love to design the next generation of high-tech equipment? To be involved in a design from the first concept until the final dimensioning, implementing both industry standards and your own ideas? We are looking for a creative mechanical design engineer with an eye for detail that wants to take up this challenge.

As a design engineer you will design the next generations of Archimedes Drives, detail concept design from the R&D engineers, analyze tolerance stacks, execute basic FEA, create drawings for production, and conceptualize test machine parts. For the commercial Archimedes Drive designs, it will be your responsibility to combine the latest knowledge within IMSystems and industry to synthesize a drive that will fit all the customers’ requirements. You will be responsible from quick draft, till the final design with every detail well substantiated and calculated. Production drawings, assembly guides and documentation you create, are of the highest quality, without any ambiguity.

For the R&D within IMSystems, you will support the team with detailing of new prototypes and finalization of the production documentation. For the performance testing of the drive prototypes, you will conceptualize, and design new test machines, mountings, and other parts required for prototyping and testing.

The core tasks in short:

  • Translate requirements into concepts.
  • Create finalized and manufacturable mechanical designs.
