Mechanical Engineer (Halfweg)

Also known as: our drafter

What does your day look like as a Mechanical Engineer?

Mechanical Engineer

Monday morning at the office: time to join the kick-off meeting.


Your colleagues from the mechanical, electrical, software and assembly department are also present. A large tomato grower has chosen us to automate the unfolding of their foldable crates. Cool! As a Mechanical Engineer you will work on the complete mechanical design, making detailed drawings and the parts lists of this End-of-Line machine.

While on your bike to Lan Handling, you have already thought about how you can achieve a minimum of 25 crates per minute, whereby the same machine can also handle a wide variety of other crates. During the meeting you will discuss the various mechanical modules that can be reused and the modules that need to be redesigned based on the customer’s other functional specifications.

Back at your desk, you start drawing out the first submodules. That’s challenging: designing a machine that meets customer requirements and our own machine standards. In addition, you already keep in mind future standardization options and an efficient design that you can realize within the planning and budget of the project.

Time to go home? First a walk through the production hall. Here your fellow mechanics are working hard on a machine that you adapted to customer specifications a few months ago. Good to see the feedback you have received from them in practice.

How you get things moving:

And always that check: yes, we also handle this product with our machines! But, of course, that’s not all:
