When it comes to programming PLCs and designing electrical systems for high speed automated equipment, you have this thing nailed.

You have been programming PLCs for a long time, and you can make a machine do almost anything. From complex assembly processes to material handling, robots, grippers, complicated sorting procedures, sensors, motion controllers and beyond, you have this covered.

Along with this your schematics are detailed. Concise and accurate. To top it off, your customers love working with you as you take each project from concept to successful installation.

Even though you sort of like your job, truth be told, every day you find yourself wishing you were on a new product development team as you are growing tired of working on variations of the same old stuff every day. In a perfect world you would be regularly challenged to push the technology envelope as you help to create new and innovative automated machinery and processes.

3. Select and integrate hardware and software components such as material handling systems, machining applications, assembly procedures, robots, grippers, load cells, motion controllers, sensors, safety systems, vision systems, lasers, etc.

4. Debug and commission software programs during systems integration phase and then at the customer's site during installation (as needed).

5. Travel up to 25 percent to support your amazing projects.

6. Provide technical direction to Junior Engineers, Electrical Technicians, and Machine Builders as needed.
