Renishaw’s Encoder Products Division (EPD) designs and supplies cutting-edge position feedback technology to the world’s precision measurement, automation, and manufacturing industries. It is highly likely that something you own contains a part or device that was manufactured with the help of one of Renishaw’s encoder products.
EPD is made up of engineers, scientists and technicians all working together to produce market leading products for sale around the world. We start with cutting edge optical, algorithm and circuit design, developing our own ASICs and sensors where required; we then use innovative mechanical engineering to turn our core technology into a range of desirable products for our broad customer base. One of the key challenges for EPD is matching the precision requirements of our build processes to the need to build repeatable quality products by the hundreds of thousands. To do this we work closely with the Manufacturing Services Division (MSD) to develop manufacturing and assembly processes and software that perform reliably and repeatedly to accuracies of a few microns. We are constantly looking to embrace innovations in the industry that give us increased quality, repeatability and traceability while reducing product cost.
We aim to do all of this while maintaining our excellent reputation for quality, delivery and customer service.
The successful candidate will be responsible for the design and development of cutting edge metrology products. They will work with multi-disciplinary teams of scientists and engineers to take innovative concepts through to volume production. This will involve (but not be limited to) the use of various techniques such as 3D CAD, FEA, data analysis and performance testing.
The successful applicant will have strong interpersonal and communication skills, with the ability to work both alone and as part of a multi disciplinary team. They will take a logical and innovative approach to solving problems. Additionally, they will be a self starter in uncertain situations, well organised and have the ability to work on several projects concurrently.
