Mechanical Design Engineer

Mechanical design involves selection of the specific conductor configuration, calculations of conductor sag and stress from ice and wind loads, conductor movements caused by wind, insulator mechanical strength, and selection of conductor hardware, such as insulator assemblies, hanger brackets, suspension clamps, spacers, and spacer dampers.

Job Responsibilities

  • Study plans for upcoming generation of engine models, and develop strategies for improving upon current models
  • Design products using CAD, and consult with engineering and manufacturing teammates to ensure that designs are feasible
  • Develop and build prototypes and run tests to measure their level of function
  • Record and evaluate testing data, altering designs as necessary to bring them to safety, performance and efficiency standards
  • Consult with fabrication teams during product manufacturing, advising them on design specifications and providing physical assistance when required
  • Research competitor products quarterly and collaborate with product development team to generate ideas for making our products the best ones on the market
  • Calculate cost estimates for final product designs, and release reports to supervisors, incorporating costs of labor, material, delivery and overhead
  • Attend weekly team meetings to provide progress reports, obtain updates on colleagues’ progress, strategize on steps for following week and acquire information about projected emerging product lines
