Technical Product Designer (m/f/d) – Mechanical and Plant Engineering


You have always loved tinkering, developing and constructing things, you are looking at technical drawings and you are excited when your designs come to life? Then try yourself and your passion as a creative creator at our transformers of the future.

You will learn to design and construct components, assemblies or complete plants after customers wishes. You normally complete detailed design plans on the computer using 2D and 3D-CAD systems in cooperation with the Engineering Department, for example for redesign or modernization of machine tools.

In their drawings, Technical Product Designers (m/f/d) specializing in mechanical and plant engineering ensure that these can be implemented taking account of the quality standards and in an economically efficient manner. Furthermore, you will draw up assembly plans and part lists together with spare parts lists for production. You will update product documentations, manage the various development versions and create data backups.
