Mechanical Design Engineer
We are a company based in the west Midlands, Wolverhampton who is actively seeking an experienced design engineer to join our company. Our company specialises in surface treatment process lines, for special process treatments on aerospace and automotive industries. Each process line is designed bespoke at our head office in Wolverhampton, where we utilise 2D Auto Cad and 3D Solid works. We manufacture tank lines, LEV systems, walkways and steel structures, pipework systems etc.
We require an experienced design engineer who has good knowledge on engineering principles and has worked in a robust and demanding engineering environment. We would require the successful engineer to work with a team of experienced engineers, however have the ability to work alone on a specific project.
SFE are actively looking for an experienced design engineer who has specific knowledge and experience with designing surface treatment process lines for the metal finishing industry as a whole but primarily having served in the aerospace industry. SFE design, manufacture and site install surface treatment plant for anodising, chemical etching, chemical cleaning, passivation, pickling for aero structures and aero engines.
The process lines vary from manual hoist operated equipment to PLC controlled automatic transporter operated equipment. Each plant varies in design; hence the design engineer must understand the many principals involved in designing bespoke surface treatment plant.
The engineer must be proficient and experienced in all aspects of mechanical design when working with steel and thermoplastic materials. Other areas of expertise required are as follows:
AutoCAD 2D software
Solidworks 3D Software or Similar
Overhead automatic transporter design
Manual and or semi-automatic transporter system design
Cross transfer design
Process tank design
Pipework systems design for Steel and Plastic pipework
Fume extraction systems design inc. Fume scrubber, extraction ducting, fan systems
Civil works design
Heating systems design and calculations
Cooling systems design and calculations
Project Management & Co-ordination
Communication skills are imperative, you will be asked to visit client sites for kick off meetings and will be required to hold technical discussions on the process plant design as and when required.
As part of the role the engineer will be required to project manage the process plant installation. This will require regular visits to site, coordination with other contractors I.e. control systems contractors, building contractors and SFE site personnel. The site locations could be anywhere in the world, so some overseas travel will be necessary.
The engineer will be required to work a standard 40hr week. Weekend working may be required and hours outside of the standard working week may be required based on the project demands, we require the engineer to be flexible and accommodating to this.
Remuneration / Package
A comprehensive package will be offered to the candidate which fits all requirements.
