Your responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Integration of mechanical, electronic and software functionality into a high-speed accurate and reliable production machine
  • Design and tuning of motion control systems using linear and rotating servo motors on the basis of sensor and trajectory information (feedback and feedforward tuning)
  • Modeling and optimization of dynamic properties of mechanical components in the servo loop
  • Modeling and design of the integral mechatronic system and servo axis for specified performance
  • Measurement techniques for validation and problem analysis in modules and systems
  • Occasional visits to customer sites in Asia for equipment installation and troubleshooting
  • Work in a multidisciplinary team



Your profile:

  • Bachelor or Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering, Control Engineering or Mechatronics
  • 5+ years work experience
