The “Additive Manufacturing & Component Reliability” sector of our “Micro & Nano Systems” division, based in Neuchâtel, Switzerland is looking for an
Expert in Additive Manufacturing Process Engineering
Your mission will be to innovate and develop laser powder-bed fusion (LPBF) process for a fine detailed resolution of complex geometries systems for industrial applications.
Process innovation and development of end-to-end manufacturing process for complex parts involving high accuracy for additive manufacturing laser-based technique
Develop and improve LPBF process parameters targeting the highest accuracy, in particular for the AM of parts including complex geometries with additional functions
Work cooperatively and effectively with design engineers: participate to the design and anticipate manufacturing issues. Propose smart ideas for the implementation of parts on build plates to reach minimum defects. Prepare high quality build jobs
Develop and execute internal R&D topics that align with CSEM’s AM roadmap and advance the team’s technical capabilities
Expand and optimize post-process treatments and surface finishing
Understand business and technology needs and develop technology AM-based solutions for pursuit in new project opportunities
Write clear, and accurate technical proposals and reports that capture the project requirements and deliverables
Provide strategic input into the AM technical roadmap
Setup, operate, and perform daily maintenance on LPBF equipment and assure training of new team members
PhD in Mechanical Engineering or Materials Science or equivalent
At least 5 years of post-PhD work experience with the powder-based additive manufacturing process development
Proven knowledge of working with different type of metal-based materials.
Strong experience with AM-related software (Magics, nTopology, etc.) and CAD software (Solidworks 2020 preferred) and familiar with programming languages such as Python and MATLAB
Ability to run Design of Experiment (DoE) on process parameter development
Hands-on experience on post treatment methods for 3D printed parts, such as heat treatment, HIP, surface finishing
Self-management, organized and disciplined in control and quality issues
Out of the box thinking and innovative
Strong communication skills: ability to communicate with a diverse community of technical and non-technical stakeholders
Open-minded attitude and well-developed team-spirit
