junior FEM Engineer

(motion simulation platforms)

The company

This fast growing, high-tech company specialises in the development and build of simulation platforms for various applications. Located in Noord-Holland, their best known products are the motion systems used in flight training simulators. They also supply simulators for railroad and helicopter flight training and the entertainment sector. Thanks to their extended experience in the fields of motion systems, hardware platforms and control loaders, they understand simulator requirements in every aspect.

All simulator platforms are designed and assembled in their in-house workshop, while the high precision parts are produced by partners and subcontractors. This company is one of the very few Dutch specialists when it comes to motion simulation and control force simulation, translating into high demand for their services.

The job

Soon after your introduction you join ongoing projects. You learn every technical detail: how to install them, how they work and much, much more. Before a new system goes into production it is thoroughly tested in CAD and in real life.

Your job is to make sure that the mechanical parts developed by the design department are strong and durable enough. The company is active in multiple industries and each industry has different criteria and norms. The FEM department ensures these requirements are met.

You will work on:

  • Optimization of mechanical parts components and assemblies for motion systems.
  • Using dedicated software, set up and calculate simulations of both the individual components to entire products.
  • Report findings according to international standards.
  • Design experiments on new components.
  • Provide technical assistance to design team at the start of projects.

The great thing about this job is the practical use of your designs. What you see on your screen will actually be produced!
