Manufacturing Engineer - EOL Testing
A leading UK Lithium-Ion Battery Manufacturing Technical Centre are seeking a number of experienced Manufacturing Engineers (EOL Testing) to support their industrial R&D and scale up processes. It is quite possible that these skills don`t yet exist within the immature UK Lithium-ion Battery industry, so we are looking for "near neighbour" technologies. So if you have experience of testing of Lithium-Ion battery cells/modules/packs, or experience of electrical and electronic component EOL Testing (End of Line Testing), and you want to get into one of the fastest growing and best invested sectors in UK Manufacturing, then please apply.
Commutable from: Coventry, Warwick, Leamington Spa, Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford, Leicester, Birmingham
Salary: £ 30,000 - £ 45,000 p.a.
Suitable for: Project Engineer, Process Engineer, Lead Project Engineer, Lead Process Engineer, Manufacturing Engineer
To carry out research and testing of Battery Cells/ Modules / Pack (Pouch and Cylindrical) to support the ramp up into series productions and the associated activities, with reference to: Process Equipment Commissioning; Quality Management and Process Control.
To provide specialist technical recommendations, practical tools and design resolution advice for manufacturing and quality performance within the project, particularly on testing and verification.
To share information with colleagues and customers, and provide recommendations.
To manage research aspects of the project including contributing to academic publications, technical reports and other presentations and dissemination methods
To assist with the development and delivery of teaching and training materials to disseminate the research findings in a format that will encourage successful implementation.
To identify, operate and install suitable equipment to support the project objectives. Carrying out suitable tests to evaluate the equipment performance effect on product to push forward the boundaries of current knowledge in each topic area. Running on a campaign strategy.
To monitor and record deliverables during research and production & identify routes for achievement of quality targets.
Experience with Electrical and Electronic EOL Testing, ideally High Voltage.
The Manufacturing Engineers (EOL Testing) will have a good honours degree in a relevant subject (e.g. Mechanical Engineering, Quality Management Systems, Metrology etc.).
A willingness to carry out experimental work in a Laboratory environment.
As Manufacturing Engineers (EOL Testing) you will have a good understanding of manufacturing engineering and industrial automation (preferably Battery cell assembly processes) within high value industries e.g.: pharmaceutical, food, tobacco, automotive, nuclear.
The Manufacturing Engineers (EOL Testing) will have experience in experimental design, data analysis and interpretation specific to Battery Cell Manufacture or comparable processes
Experience of manufacturing process engineering within Battery Cell Manufacture or a relevant industrial sector at high volume
Taking R&D principals and moving to first implementation within a "real world" environments.
Experience in QMS Accreditation e.g. TS-16949, ISO-9001.
Able to effectively make process improvements and recommendations
Ability to work independently and as part of a team on research programmes
Excellent communications skills, able to present materials to a wide audience and present training as required.
Able to initiate, plan, organise, implement and deliver programmes to tight deadlines.
Excellent IT ability as well as experience with Minitab.
A significant level of product development experience within an industrial context.
Ideally you will have a knowledge of battery assembly in a production environment.
