Achtergrond opdracht

Are you passionate about precision mechanisms and development of high-tech machines? Making optimal choices between disciplines for a good performance at acceptable cost? Get in touch with us!

Mechanical Engineer

You will add value to our products by developing and engineering units and components in a multidisciplinary environment.

What will be your job like as Mechanical Engineer?

In our product development projects at R&D you are responsible and focusing on mechanical topics like mediahandling systems, high precision frames, linear and rotational drive systems, printheads, ink fixation units, and more.

Together with the stakeholders (Manufacturing, Service, Purchasing, Quality Assurance) you specify and agree on requirements based on project demands. This is your input together with the designers and architects to come up with technical designs and concepts that meet these objectives, properly balancing time, quality, functionality, and costs (QFTC).

Within the project you collaborate with colleagues from other disciplines. You review your ideas and jointly develop smart creative solutions that meet the overall project objectives. You test and review your model based design(s) by building prototypes to proof the feasibility of the routes you have identified.

In this role there are plenty of opportunities to further develop yourself, e.g. to lead mechanical engineer, mechanical designer, etc.

A good example.

Design adaption cooling unit with integrated paper transport system.

The assignment is the construction of a modular cooling unit with integrated paper transport functionality. Together with a functional designer in Heat Flow and a functional designer in Media Handling you will work on this multifunctional unit to meet all the requirements. It is a good example of working in a multi-disciplinary environment with mechanics, electronics, software and physics.


since our machines are printing more ink/m^2 than before, paper must be transported very carefully without damaging the print. Currently we are on a search for the ideal papertransport that does not charge electrical (otherwise it will stick), leaves no traces on the print, has a low friction coefficient. A team of a designer and a mechanical engineer are working together to get the best possible solution.

Your key responsibilities are:

  • Designing mechanical components and units in NX CAD/CAE
  • Specify, realize and verify the mechanical design requirements
  • Units and parts documentation (Drawings, Instructions, Requirements, etc.)
  • Tolerance decompositions in units
  • Reviews with vendors
  • Perform effectively in a multi-disciplinary team

Opdracht informatie

Please send us before the 8th of December 2021, 18.00 uur your recent CV + a cover letter for this role (both in English) together with your availability/planned vacations and all-in hourly rate VAT (BTW) excluded.
