The company is present in over 30 countries on 5 continents, has over 60 manufacturing units, 7 R&D centres together employing 11,000 people.
The Flow Control division of Vesuvius is dedicated to the development, engineering, assembly and commissioning of refractory products and flow control equipment, including mechanical devices, hydraulics, automation and robotics, for in particular the steel manufacturing industry. These products and services play a crucial role in making these high-tech applications safe for people to work, reducing the environmental footprint, driving operational excellence while enhancing the customer’s product quality.

Carry out Projects and TSR engineering design work supporting the Project Manager. The main duty is to do the engineering work required to adapt our standard product onto the customer specific application. 

Design product developments and custom designs when required into specific customer installation projects. The Design Engineer is responsible for the conception, detail engineering including manufacturing prints (in coordination with designers in the home and remote engineering sites), product testing and validation and product documentation build up and maintenance.

Main accountabilities :

  • Responsible for mechanical, hydraulic and other media design work in respect to the technical specifications and project planned delivery mile stones. Model and simulate the robot functions and trajectories fit for the application using the Creo and KUKA SIM tools. Develop the robot devices (racks, tools,…) to adapt it to the specific application. Validate by KUKA simulation the load and reach of the robot to confirm robot size selection and define the loads applied to the supporting structures to enable relevant stability verifications.
  • Organise and follow up the drafting work of the designer (draftsmen) on home and remote sites. Responsible for drawings check, approval and official release for manufacturing. Consider manufacturing cost parameters in the design.
  • Responsible of RCT mechanical project, with general view of target date, technical specifications and customer application.
