Job Description

Job ID: 37593

Our client in Camarillo, California is seeking a Design Engineer - SolidWorks



Looking for experience in mechanical parts and designing mechanisms or mechanical assemblies.Should have experience SolidWorks in design of metal and composite components that fit together, need to understand the complications of designing parts that fit together. How to use geometric tolerances to assure this. Any experience with connectors would be a huge bonus. 

Uses creativity and the discipline of engineering that applies principles of physics and science mechanics specifically towards the design of a moving mechanical system. The designer will design devices to transform input forces and movement into a desired set of output forces and movement through the use of combined components such as gears and gear trains, belt and chain drives, cam and follower mechanisms, and linkages as well as friction devices such as brakes and clutches, and structural components such as the frame, fasteners, bearings, springs, lubricants and seals, as well as a variety of specialized machine elements such as splines, pins and keys. 
o Work as a member of an integrated, interdisciplinary product team to develop solutions for various projects and applications. 
o Apply knowledge of mechanical engineering and scientific principles to develop, design, analyze, test, and validate solutions for complex electro-mechanical systems and parts. 
o Design mechanical mechanisms and products based on set of given and derived requirements. 
o Develop complex mechanical and/or electro-mechanical mechanisms including designs, drawings, performance predictions and verification requirements and support briefings to management team. 
o Oversee fabrication/testing of concept designs and assist with development of test protocols. 
o Perform related analysis (simple FEA) and classical hand calculations to determine if design meets functional / performance specifications and optimization of design. 
o Modify designs based upon cost and manufacturing capabilities. 
o Work with structural analysis to verify loads and stresses before fabrication. 
o Hold design reviews and presentations among peers to gain design feedback. 
o Assure system and product quality by designing testing methods and fixtures; testing finished- product and system capabilities; confirming fabrication, assembly, and installation processes. 
o Responsible for completing Project Summaries, Action Items, Test Requirements, Release Orders, Change Orders, 3-D Models, and Part Drawings.
