Mechanical Design Engineer M/F
The Mechanical Design Engineer role involves the design of integrated circuit packaging suitable for use in Time of Flight (TOF) systems. The packaging forms an integral part of the optical component integration and thermal management of the module.
It will require detailed mechanical design using CAD software (Solidworks) to explore concept designs, develop mass production designs optimized for external subcontractors manufacturing process tolerances.
The role will involve mechanical design for Time of Flight and other optical sensors, with the objective to produce well-designed modules for high volume mass production, including:
Responsible for mechanical package design for consumer electronics applications
Knowledge of FMEA lead design processes
Material and process selection
Detailed 2D drawings and 3D modelling
Finite Element Analysis for stress and thermal modelling
Co-operation with related disciplines including optical, process & product engineers
Design for high volume manufacture, assembly compatibility, tolerance analysis.
Communicate with all key internal and external stakeholders
Verifying mechanical design by simulation and characterization of parts
The role requires interactions with various stakeholders in various geographic locations, as such, the successful candidate is expected to work in various time zones and to be able to travel at short notices. Good communication skills are essential.
