Ask me a question!

As a Robotics Engineer, your challenge and responsibility are to prepare and translate the customers required functional specifications of the robot and peripheral equipment into concrete robot control programs, within the time frame and quality requirements. You will have full responsibility on the robot part or in projects. This means: 

  • Implementing the offline program that has been supplied by the Simulation Engineer;
  • Simulate whether all requirements are met;
  • Execute preparatory tasks for the transfer/training of our customers;
  • Working closely with your colleagues from Controls, Simulation, and Production;
  • Commissioning and functional testing of the machine at our location in the Netherlands and at customer locations;
  • Optimisation of the cycle time.

This will be your day

7:30 After a cup of coffee and discussing the weekend, you get to work! You have the freedom to execute your work and will start with your own planning. You will determine the priorities for this week.
11:00 You dive back into your project. It is time for commissioning and testing the machine.
13:00 After lunch break were you had a walk or lunch with your colleagues. You have a weekly project meeting. All the leads of the project team will share their status and what they need for the coming week.
15:00 Your colleagues are stuck in a project and ask for your expertise. You are naturally acting as an advisor and are already looking forward to fix this challenge together!
16:15 Time flies! You are going to finalize the day and lock your laptop. With a satisfied feeling you go back to home.
