Motor Mechanical Design

Santa Clara Valley (Cupertino), California, United States


Role Number:200266624
The Special Projects Group (SPG) is seeking a motor mechanical designer for the actuation team. This person will be responsible for all mechanical design aspects of the motor, including stator, rotor, and integration into challenging product packages. This includes working very closely with electromagnetic modeling experts to refine motor parameters to cost, package, and performance targets. Once locked, this person will be the owner of product interface analysis and definition, detailed structural and thermal analysis, test and validation activities, and delivery of the motor for system integration. Additionally, this person will use their production experience to contribute to key cost modeling development.
