About this vacancy

For ASML in Veldhoven, YER is recruiting a Mechatronics Design Engineer.

Job description

Within ASML the sector Development & Engineering is responsible for the specification and the design of the ASML products. The department Mechatronics Systems Development is responsible for specification, design, integration, qualification and industrialisation of the mechatronics sub-systems and components which are fitted into the end products. The main focus is on nanometer-accuracy positioning of high speed components. Control engineering, dynamics, actuator design, position measurement systems and material handling are part of this department’s main competences.

In this job you contribute to the design of the system’s dynamic architecture or a passive or active vibration control module. This is done by specification, design, technical budget analysis, critical component selection, integration and test planning and test execution of system components or modules, with the emphasis on dynamics, signal analysis and functional Integration and troubleshoot. The dynamic architecture together with the active or passive vibration isolation is one of the pillars that determine the machines performance.

The holder of the position reports to the group leader of a group within the MSD department and is operational within multidisciplinary projects.

Work in multidisciplinary project teams, aimed at design of the system’s dynamic architecture/vibration control module with the following responsibilities:

  • Optimising design using predictive modelling techniques
  • Architectural design and perform trade-offs between mechanical, electronic and software solutions
  • Technical budget analysis
  • Selection of critical components and technologies
  • Supporting development of critical components and processes in the supply chain
  • Integration and test planning of the system/module
  • Documentation of system/module specifications, design, and test analysis results
