Technical Product Designer specialising in mechanical and plant engineering

Technical product designers specialising in mechanical and plant engineering draft and design components, modules or entire plants according to customers' specifications. They work in cooperation with the development department and use CAD systems to produce detailed models, e.g. for the modernisation of machine tools. In this context, they comply with the relevant standards and enter the dimensions appropriate for production. They take electrotechnical components into account and select suitable standard parts and materials which satisfy the requirements in question. They implement change proposals, e.g. from non-conformity or test reports, within the design. They ensure that developments can be implemented in an economically efficient manner. Moreover, they also create assembly plans and parts lists for the production department. They update product documentation, manage the various development versions and create data backups.
