Over deze vacature

In this role are primarily responsible for translation of X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) and X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) application requirements into tube specifications. You work with the engineering team developing analytical systems and with external customers.


This function is within R & D department of Supply Centre Eindhoven. Together with a team of highly qualified engineers, you will develop new generations of X-Ray tubes and high-grade components for analytic X-Ray equipment.

Within the development team, you will have a variety of design and validation tasks but your primary responsibility will be thermal and thermo-mechanical design of X-Ray tubes. Based on customer requirements together with the System Architect and other Development Engineers you will propose technical concepts and validate them using Finite Element Modelling and experimental tests.

You will work closely with Mechanical Engineers to make correct implementation of your design in CAD ensuring compliance with design rules. Together with the Test Engineer you define a test plan, review the results and make product design changes as necessary. Finally, working closely with factory Process Engineers you facilitate smooth transfer of the product to production
