Job Description

The design engineer is responsible for component and system level design for flat panel in-line glass vacuum deposition systems. The design engineer will source and design component and system level solutions to market defined performance requirements. This position requires a self driven, creative individual with the ability and experience to organize and drive a large engineering project with a large degree of design independence. Working with a dedicated team of electrical, software, and applications engineers, the design engineer will develop the mechanical solutions that result in technical and market leadership for new capital equipment. The position is for new system design on aggressive schedules, but may also include some design improvement projects on existing equipment.

SUMMARY OF RESPONSIBILITIES: • Design and develop large in-line coating equipment for thin film vacuum applications. • Work with internal and external design resources to generate new designs and identify or develop improvements to existing design. • Generate detail and assembly drawings and BOMs using SolidWorks • Generate and maintain a project schedule including both individual and mechanical designers supporting design project. • Interface with sales, marketing, and customers to develop designs that meet customer’s needs and expectations. Provide sales and customer resource support for new design opportunities, and for validation of design performance. • Interface with manufacturing to develop cost-effective processes such as welding, sheet metal forming, machining. • Complete Engineering Change Orders (for new and changes), including verifying prints and bills of material • Define and perform tests to verify designs

• Experience in all phases of vacuum glass coaters, preferably at elevated temperatures. • Experience with handling large glass substrates. • Familiarity with implementing various vacuum deposition processes (sputtering and thermal). • Mechanical design using 3D CAD (SolidWorks highly preferred) • Previous experience with SAP or similar MRP software • Microsoft Office and Microsoft Project EDUCATIONAL/EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENTS: Indicate the minimum experience and education (or equivalent) required to perform job. • BS in Mechanical Engineering or related degree. • 10+ years capital equipment design experience, preferably in the area of vacuum systems, or Automation
