Cross check colleague’s technical drawings to ensure they comply with company standards and samples
Contributing to design reviews where required
Use Solidworks software to produce models and drawings
Maintaining, where necessary, existing design information using software packages
Provide engineering support and technical guidance as and when required.
Refining 3D models in the product range
Follow company processes and procedures
Mechanical Engineering background: ONC/HNC/HND in mechanical engineering is preferred
Strong understanding of manufacturing processes including casting, forging, machining, and metal fabrication
Excellent 2D and 3D design skills with experience of Solidworks
Experience of using a CMM, Faro Arm or similar
Understanding and interpretation of engineering and drawing standards.
Understanding of pumps and rotating equipment
Experience in the use of FEA would be an advantage
Ability to work on multiple projects concurrently
