  • Have interactions with suppliers on product design, produce-ability, product quality and cost;
  • Work on a diversity of components in the MR Scanner. In this role as Mechanical Engineer you are responsible for the design, realization (schematics, drawings), integration and (electro-mechanical) test of sub-systems, components or modules on the basis of design specifications in accordance with the functional specifications.

Key areas of responsibility:

  • Work in multidisciplinary project teams;
  • Overall ownership in making the changes happen;
  • Specialist in DfX, e.g. design for product cost, warranty, instability, reliability;
  • Breakdown of specifications into detailed specifications;
  • Document development efforts for the (electro)mechanical subsystem, component or module, including requirements, specifications, plans, reviews, test procedures, and test reports as input in the planning process of the project;
