NX Constructor/ Engineer


Within the organization’s Research & Development the Mechanical Development Department delivers high performance, low cost mechatronic systems. From the initial idea and vision, to the final tested solution, the goal is to challenge yourself and your fellow developers to define successful concepts, models, designs and prototypes. Working areas include productive, high speed sheet-fed and continuous feed media handling systems, high-precision print head and ink handling systems, print head positioning and motion systems. For a new print product we are looking for an experienced NX Constructor/Engineer.


Able to assist with design/construction activities in the media handling function during the project. The idea is to have an experienced engineer with excellent NX CAD skills who can have a jump start. He or she will start in elaborating constructions/parts first. Preferably the engineer will be able to setup constructions independently. The candidate will work in a larger multidisciplinary team with state of the art tools and methods.

The main task is to assist a lead mechanical engineer by elaborating several units for the media handling of a new state-of-the-art, sheet-fed inkjet printer. For this, excellent NX CAD skills are required. The units have been coarsely designed by a system architect or mechanical lead engineer, and need to be further elaborated up to and including 2D documentation and ordering of parts. You will guide the building process of the unit and verify your result. Preferably you can operate as a source of information for co-workers when it comes to NX.

After being familiar with the company's way of working your goal is to become an engineer that will independently design units based on functional requirements.

  • Candidate has a BSc degree in mechanical engineering;
  • At least 5 years of work experience, preferably with mechatronics and/or precision mechanics;
  • Profound knowledge and experience with NX CAD 3D and 2D is required;
