    Description :

    We are seeking experienced machine designers to design and assist in building high-quality precision industrial machinery. Designers depending on the level of experience must be able to concept solutions for nesting customer parts while integrating the necessary tooling that is required for each application. Applications can range from clinching, piercing, pressing, skiving, crimping, marking, bending and forming. The design will entail the whole machine which also includes piping/tubing/wiring layouts. This requires working with our Controls Engineers by giving them the requirements on how the machine should function and then taking the feed back from the Controls group and incorporating it into the design. The Designers, depending on experience, must have the good mechanical aptitude on how to assemble and disassemble tooling and machines. The Designer will be involved in all steps of the program from initial concept through build and debug. Even though it is not required, we encourage our designers to participate in the assembly process and to interact with the customer during the design, design approval and buy off phase of the project. Designers, if they would like, can also travel to visit customers for design reviews and installation support.
