ELECTRICAL DESIGN ENGINEER
Do you have extensive factory machine control experience? Titan is an engineering company and an established market leader in providing custom electrical and hydraulic test systems along with specialized assembly machines and systems. Our customers include Caterpillar, John Deere, CNH, Eaton, Danfoss and AGCO. We are focused on Fluid Power, Powertrain, and Vehicle Manufacturing in Off highway (Ag/Construction) and Aerospace industries. We are particularly skilled in data acquisition and machine controls. The test systems involve production testing of various vehicle electronics, construction equipment, forestry equipment, and agricultural tractors. Titan also builds test benches used for production testing of hydraulic components, e.g. valves, pumps, motors, cylinders, etc. Titan assembly machines and systems involve assembly and test of power train assemblies, e.g. transmissions, gear boxes, axles, clutches, etc.
POSITION REPORTS TO: Systems Engineering Manager
GENERAL RESPONSIBILITY: Develop electrical controls and data acquisition circuits for custom hydraulic test stands and automated assembly machines. These custom machine controls consist of a variety of control components including PC-based machines with National Instrument’s data acquisition hardware and/or PLC platforms.
Typical machine systems comprise of human-machine interface (HMI) touchscreens, data acquisition hardware, analog inputs and outputs, digital inputs and outputs, frequency signals, 3-phase motor controls including variable frequency drives (VFD) and servos, DC power supplies, NEMA control enclosures, etc. Standard electrical machine control components may include hydraulic and/or pneumatic directional control valves, electro-mechanical servo presses, flow meters, pressure transducers, linear position and torque transducers, proximity sensors, network communications, relays, pushbuttons, and other components.
The Design Engineer would be part of a project team. The project team in its largest form will consist of a project manager, design engineers (mechanical, electrical, and hydraulic), a software engineer, and machine assemblers (fabrication, electrical, and hydraulic/mechanical).
DETAILED RESPONSIBILITIES and REQUIRED SKILLS:
PEOPLE SKILLS: Must be able to work effectively within a project team and take direction from the project manager and/or lead design engineer. Must be able to work closely with and give direction to electricians and machine assemblers. Be able to interface effectively and professionally with customer personnel, subcontractors, and component suppliers.
EDUCATION: Prefer a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering but will consider an Associate Degree in Electrical Controls Design with appropriate experience and aptitude.
EXPERIENCE: Must have a minimum of three (3) years experience in designing test stand control and data acquisition systems and/or custom industrial machine controls.
Titan designs and builds custom test machines primarily for Off Highway Vehicle manufacturers and hydraulic component suppliers. Our key customers included Eaton, Caterpillar, John Deere, CNH, Danfoss, and Agco. We are focused on test and measurement data acquisition and analysis.
