Roles and Responsibilities
Primary role is to support automated processing machine design, assembly, commissioning and verification activities.
Take responsibility for prototype and production machine assembly, testing and verification of performance to design parameters.
Develop and improve manufacturing processes by studying product and manufacturing methods, analyzing processing machine behaviour and solving mechanical, thermal and automation problems.
Take initiative and seek machine improvement opportunities outside of the scope of original builds. Research commercial components to be integrated into machines.
Refine manufacturing processes by studying product requirements, researching and redesigning manufacturing methods and equipment, and conferring with equipment suppliers.
Improve manufacturing machine efficiency by analyzing and planning product work flow, space requirements, and equipment layout.
Prepare product and process reports by collecting, analyzing, and summarizing processing information and machine behaviour.
Analyze machine behaviour and information obtained from operators in order to diagnose and trouble-shoot equipment problems.
Provide hands-on engineering support to production and engineering
Transfer practical knowledge of the machine assembly procedures into written technical documentation.
Provide estimates of time needed to finish assigned work.
Diploma in Mechanical Engineering Technology or Bachelor of Science in Engineering.
