Mechanical Project Engineer


Your mission

As a Mechanical Project Engineer, you are responsible for the mechanical design of the material handling system. Together with other disciplines such as electrical and controls you translate the sales design in a working system solution. You coordinate the design with the customer and suppliers to achieve a coordinated design. Under your direction, the layout design engineer will make the 3D model. You will coordinate with suppliers and customers regarding interfaces and building / utilities. You will draw up specifications for the production and purchase of parts. When the conveyor system is installed on-site, you support the installation team in the field with technical questions. You report directly to the Project Leader Engineering. Travel is part of the job (on average 20%).
