FPT Motorenforschung AG in Arbon has around 250 highly qualified employees working with commitment and acknowledged success. As the main innovation center for FPT Industrial, the site is involved in developing FPT Industrials’ future powertrain solutions (not only in electrified powertrains, hybrids and fuel cells, but also novel engines concepts and alternative fuels) and is therefore at the forefront of a transition towards a future of alternative propulsion systems.
eDrives – Mechanical Engineer
As a member of the Electric Drives Team in the Electrified Powertrain Engineering division of FPT Industrial, you will be part of a highly skilled team driven to design and engineer best-in-class electric machines and power electronics for FPT Industrial electrified powertrain product portfolio. You will design, develop and integrate high performance and high density electric machines into hybrid and full electric powertrains. You will work in a collaborative team environment. You will be contributing to the development of advanced concepts as well as their implementation for application to on-road vehicles and non-road applications.
Working in a multidisciplinary team, develop and deliver best-in-class electric machines mechanical designs and solutions for FPT Industrial electrified powertrain product portfolio for hybrid and full electric powertrains
Perform design analysis using modelling and simulation techniques
Develop tools, methods, algorithms to efficiently create new designs and predict component performance
Connect the organization to the latest technology developments and trends in industry in terms of materials, processes and topologies. Also monitoring market and competitors’ product portfolio.
Study, invent, and implement new electric machine mechanical technologies to meet our product lines requirement but also in competition to the state of art solutions in the market.
Continuously evaluate new technologies and validate existing designs to develop the most power dense, efficient, low cost, and reliable electric motors
Technical liaison with system and subsystem suppliers in electric machines field.
Supplier management when and where necessary
Plan and supervise test series on rig (components), bench and vehicle (total system)
Communicate results and make presentations that describe analysis and solutions
Collaborate closely with various internal departments / laboratories and universities
Specify component technical requirements (State of Requirements) and evaluate supplier technical proposals (Sourcing and technical reviews)
Define, manage and supervise supplier and internal component development and validation activities: drawings and technical documentation release, virtual simulation, design and installation FMEA, test plans (DVP)
Support problem solving and troubleshooting activities
You have a university / engineering school degree in mechanical engineering, several years of experience in a similar role. PhD profiles preferred.
A good understanding of system and component interactions for traction/propulsion eDrives
Expertise in Electric Motors for Automotive Applications, On/Off road vehicles from design to manufacturing.
5 to 7+ years of experience:
Mechanical Design, Simulation and Analysis based on Analytical models or Numerical/FEA tools and of electric machines and CAE experience,
Prototyping and testing
You have good English and German (preferred) skills (spoken and written), Italian skills would be an asset
You are a highly motivated self-starter and team-player with very good communication skills
Strong knowledge and understanding of electric machine physics, modelling, and technologies
Deep understanding in mechanics, dynamics, thermal analysis and material proprieties highly preferred
Knowledge of modelling and design tools (CAD, FEM/FEA) for mechanical design and static and dynamic structural analysis for virtual validation. Example of tools : NX/CREO or similar CAD, Mechanical Analysis: ANSYS Suite, ABAQUS, ….
Base knowledge of Design Standards and materials specification and proprieties
Knowledge on fatigue analysis and mechanical wearing and ageing processes of electrical motor in general but more in details for electric motor for traction/propulsion.
Experience with FMEA, DVP
Good understanding of manufacturing processes for electrical motors and the key challenges.
Proficient coding skills with preference for MATLAB experience
Self-motivated with the ability to manage multiple tasks
