This exciting role is part of Eaton India Innovation Center (EIIC) within Aerospace SWEC team. He/ she will be responsible to perform the design and development electrical motors conforming to required standards and to customer specific requirements for Aerospace hydraulic systems, fuel systems, actuation systems and motion control applications. In depth experience in the Magnetic and Mechanical design of Brushless DC motor and electromechanical solenoid design is a primary requirement. Knowledge of Brushed DC Motor and AC Induction motor design is highly desirable. The candidate will be required to design motors from requirements provided by the Mechanical group, Electronics group and customer specification. Also, he will support manufacturing functions during new production development and sustaining activities of existing products as subject matter expert. Typical products include electric motors & solenoids for a variety of commercial & military aerospace actuator system applications. This is a senior role within a small highly motivated technical team supporting the larger engineering and manufacturing department in this specialist discipline. 

Your essential responsibilities:

  • Lead efforts for devising concepts, creating drawing and performing detailed analysis with respect to requirements for motors and solenoids

  • Incorporates design standards in new concepts.  Evaluate, select, and adapt criteria, techniques, and procedures to solve problems.

  • Conduct research, tests and analytical tasks to develop data for solution to problems for which precedents may be limited or not applicable

  • Practice Design for reliability, Design for Manufacture and Design for Assembly are expected, leading to practical production designs in conjunction with other disciplines within the Engineering department.

  • Produce analytical designs using recognized analysis tools (e.g. Ansys RMxprt, Maxwell 2D & 3D), accurately and efficiently to scheduled timeline.

  • Prepare and review engineering proposals, performance specifications, technical reports and papers.

  • Support manufacturing divisions with design related issues, concessions and Engineering Change Requests.

  • Understand fully most of the manufacturing process of major components, in-process validation testing and final test processes to support all phases of new product development.

  • Execute the project through entire product lifecycle as per ProLaunch process

  • Continuously manages the expectations of internal and external customers.
