Mechanical Development Engineer
Thermodynamic design of heat pump modules and proper integration on Tumble Dryers and Wash&Dryers platforms
Mechanical engineers work on a new project or current production improvements from the initial brief, through the design and development stage, to the testing of one or more prototypes, right through to final manufacture and implementation
A Typical Day
Thermodynamic design/selection of heat pump components, focusing on performance, cost and quality, according to platforms targets and constraints (technical specifications, feasibility, functionality, manufacturability, reliability)
Analysis of innovative technical solutions with suppliers, laboratories, factories and other functions involved
Create and validate mechanical system/module/components taking care of its design and development (technical specification, functionality, reliability, manufacturability, safety, quality, cost etc.)
Drive the execution of mechanical development project/activities
Support test manual definition for components/modules
Develop designs & system and validate through calculation / simulation modelling (CAE, MBD) and prototype/experimental testing
Participate in system/module/components definition and its reviews, ensuring standardization & modularization approach
Support Thermodynamic Laboratories (internal ones and external partners) on test methodology definition and data post-processing of new solutions
Participate in supplier evaluation and selection
Monitor and commission changes to plant and systems (PLM, …) and support part/product approval
Supply all technical input for product literature, BOM, labels, technical manuals, etc.
Support technical leader on project deliveries / documentation / planning / protos
Ensure strong relationship with all functions in the organization
Drive proper external networking
The function as technical leader can be assigned in agreement with the employee
The function of a GDM can be assigned, depending on seniority
