Mechanical Project Engineer (Halfweg)

Also known as: our masterful and ambitious Lego builder

What does your day look like?

A bit like your childhood. Remember the hours spent at home playing with Lego blocks to assemble an epic structure.


Well the position – Mechanical Project Engineer – ensures this is still possible at Lan, except it’s digital and with a bit more responsibilities. Whenever we acquire a new project, you will be responsible for the complete mechanical design of our end-of-line automation machines.

Together with the multidisciplinary project team, which consists of mechanical, electrical, software, assembly and installation specialists, you will discuss project planning. For this meeting, the total project is divided into modules that must be designed based on the functional specifications. Back on the floor, you support the other mechanical engineers and also design parts for the new machine line yourself. You critically look at possible improvements through standardisation of modules, ensure a lead time reduction and come up with product innovations.

At the end of the day you check whether your other projects are still proceeding according to plan. Yes, nice and busy! You will also meet with the project manager to provide an update for the meeting the next day.
