PDS Tech Inc Electromechanical Engineer in Sarasota, Florida
PDS Tech Inc. is seeking a Electromechanical Engineer, in Sarasota, FL.
Electromechanical Engineers are in charge of electric component design conducting a combination of electrical and mechanical engineering. Electromechanical Engineers carry the principles of electrical and mechanical engineering to the role.
The electric components designed in our distribution business line consists of circuit breakers, contactors, switches and auxiliary contacts for a range of current from 0.1 Amp to 600 Amp and for a range of voltage from 5V to 1200 V. While our components are designed for aerospace industry they are used in a wide range of applications such as, but not limited to, military vehicles, oil and gas mining, heavy duty construction equipment, farm equipment and both military and commercial aerospace applications.
Essential Duties and Responsibilities:
The primary responsibilities of an Electromechanical engineer include designing, developing and maintaining electric components by focusing on safety, cost, reliability, sustainability and quality.
Implicated in a project from the conceptual idea and detail of the design to testing, qualification and industrialization for full rate production.
Conduct specifications and requirements based design activities.
Produce analysis and justification in order to develop and justify conformity of design to requirements.
These analysis include:
Mechanical stress analysis
Heat dissipation and heat transfer analysis
Modeling of parts deformation due to thermal effect
Voltage drop analysis
Modeling of latch/unlatch mechanism
Modeling of opening/closing time and dynamic of motion
Magnetic field modeling
Mechanical stack-up analysis
Selection of coating and plating for metallic parts
Wear allowance analysis
Modeling of friction and tribology between parts
Produce experimental technology validation plan
Produce component verification plan
Produce component endurance test plan
