The Opto-mechanical Design Engineer role provides an opportunity to work with a highly cross-functional group of scientists and engineers to contribute towards next generation products in the field of ophthalmic imaging. The candidate will lead mechanical and opto-mechanical aspects of the sub-systems design in new product development as well as sustaining engineering projects. Strong verbal and written communications skills are essential, and you must be able to multitask and work effectively at all levels in a fluid environment.
Design of machined, sheet-metal, die casting and injection molding parts.
Design of tooling for sub-assemblies and calibration and alignment of the opto-mechanical systems.
Design of opto-mechanical components to meet performance requirements.
Work with optical, systems and electrical engineers to define module-level requirement specification, find the engineering solution, plan and test against requirements.
Support designs with hand calculations and analysis, as required.
Support reliability-related test and design transfer to production team. Attention to detail is required to identify potential technical risks.
Mounting and testing of mechanical modules. Assemble and check fit of design during prototype and pre-release.
Small mechanism design experience, gears, belts, bearings, motor, and others.
Use Pro/E Creo and Windchill PLM for design and documentation.
Working with other Engineers and designers, design and detail mechanical systems and assemblies.
Maintain some top-level assemblies throughout the design, documentation and release to manufacturing process
Education: BS Degree in Mechanical Engineering, MS is a plus or equivalent experience.
Experience: Strong background in mechanical design (5+ years).
Strong skills in 3D modeling of sub-systems in new product design. This includes part and assembly modeling, detail drawing, tools design for assembly.
High level of attention to detail is critical.
Experience with opto-mechanical systems.
Experience with Windchill PLM is a plus.
Experience in materials selection, materials properties and surface finishes.
Experience with reliability-related issues.
Ability to take on unscheduled or newly scheduled tasks as needed.
A self-motivated team player who is adaptable and comfortable working in a dynamic, high-paced environment.
