MAIN PLACEMENT PURPOSE:
 
We are looking for a student to support the design and development of a new high-tech machine, incorporating multiple technological innovations.  A precision machining, manufacturing and product development company by background, the role will offer a mix of everyday activities with design, testing and project management.
 
 
BACKGROUND:
 
We are a specialist engineering company, with over 50 years' experience in providing custom-built, high reliability, precision instrumentation to customers from a diverse range of global markets.

Carrying out design calculations
Designing custom and bespoke machinery
Concept designs for customers
