Job description

Your mission as an ASML Mechanical Architect is to think – conceptually and creatively. 

Because we need people who can translate extremely exotic requirements into extremely feasible mechanical designs.

Creative thinking has always been essential at ASML. We make machines that are almost unimaginably complex, and work within incredibly minute tolerances. What’s more, their complexity is increasing and their tolerance margins are vanishing. That’s why we need Mechanical Architects who can conceive a global view that answers all of these technical challenges. A view that, when detailed-out, will help realise a machine that meets all of the next wave of new requirements - and still be feasible to manufacture, transport, install and service.

The core mission of this job is to deliver mechanical/mechatronic architecture that enables the optimal functionality and cost effective engineering of new tooling.


  • Creation and investigation of mechanics/mechatronics concept design for tooling. Discuss with projects and sectors. Come up with well-considered choices, validated against system requirements.
  • Investigate manufacturability and serviceability. Creation of manufacturing and service flow leading to tooling concept. Validate with RAMS specifications.
  • Validate concept on requirements regarding transport ability and service at customer site.
  • Definition of tooling volumes. Monitor that projects stay within agreed volumes. Make use of your creativity and helicopter view to find solutions in case of conflicts.
  • Knowledge transfer to production and other relevant groups.
  • Contribute to system roadmaps.
  • Coaching and training on the job of mechanical/mechatronics engineers in the team.
  • Ensure proper competence management within the group, teaming up with the mechatronics competence within the department Development & Engineering.
