About this opportunity

CarnaudMetalbox Engineering – Permanent – NPD Mechanical Design Engineer

Your work environment: Shipley, West Yorkshire

Role Overview

Do you have what it takes to join a vibrant progressive NPD Mechanical Design Team? Do you have the interest to design cutting edge technology, capable of forming and finishing beverage cans up to 3,400 cans per minute? Are you looking to progress your career with continuous improvement and innovation? Do you have the specific set of skills to do this, if so, please read on…

We are excited to recruit into the team an experienced user of CAD systems to generate models and drawings. In the role you will generate assembly and component detailed drawings from CAD models, co-ordinate with production engineering to optimise assembly/component Design for Manufacture (DFM) and co-ordinate with quality department to define incoming inspection requirements to verify component quality.

Role Criteria

Generating design concepts for solutions to specific functional requirement and documenting design concept assumptions, design trade-offs, and calculations within the project design file, you will use Failure Mode Effect and Analysis (FMEA) techniques to identify technical risks.

Preparing and presenting technical reports for project gate reviews and contributing to planning design activities with the project manager, you will capture project technical risks and issues throughout the project lifecycle; proving technical support to the publications department in creation of product manuals, build books, and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).

Knowledge & Skills

At CMBe our engineers are experienced and highly trained, many coming through from our Apprenticeship Scheme. This ensures consistency in standards, build quality and passion to produce world leading products.

With a formal technical qualification to degree level (or equivalent) in a mechanical engineering discipline, we need someone with knowledge of geometric dimensioning and tolerance principles and standards, machining methods and techniques, material properties and standards, and Technical knowledge of hydraulic, pneumatic, and lubrication systems.

Here is what our Mechanical Design Office Manager had to say about this fantastic opportunity to join CMBE:

“It’s only a can! - “This is what my friends say when I tell them where I work and what I do for a living. The truth is it’s not just a can it’s how the can is actually manufactured…….. It’s about the fantastic engineering and science behind every machine we make in order to produce a beverage can. In-depth research, design, calculations and analysis such as simulation, FEA, and material science are commonplace as project requirements are linked and validated. Our machines run up to 3,400 cans per minute which means we need to be “at the top of our game” with designs, tools and development. As an NPD Mechanical Design team, we take our role very seriously, working together, looking at all aspects of the project and taking pride in personal continuous improvement, whether it be in academia or further training on relevant day to day tools.”
