Mechanical Engineering

As a mechanical engineering architect you are challenged to deliver high performance, low cost mechatronic systems concepts. From your initial idea and vision, to the final tested solution, you challenge yourself and your fellow architects to define successful concepts, models, prototypes and designs. Areas you will work on include productive, high-speed sheetfed and continuous feed media handling systems, high-precision printhead and ink handling systems, printhead positioning and motion systems.

Electrical/Electronic Engineering
As an Electrical/Electronic Architect you are responsible for the innovation and development of the dynamic behavior of hardware and electronics in our leading digital print systems. You will play a crucial role in our multidisciplinary product development teams, where you will be responsible for predicting, analyzing and optimizing imaging performance and high- speed data transport.

You will develop robust system architectures, and set up model-based designs for motion systems based on virtual prototyping.

A good example…

is the Océ VarioPrint i300, a revolution in cutsheet inkjet production printing. It has for example an ingenious paper path that uses vacuum suction to hold sheets flat on its seamless, stainless steel paper transport belt. Sheets move through the Océ VarioPrint i300, printing up to 294 letter images per minute or 8,500 sheets per hour. Along the way, a 3D camera Sentry unit inspects, detects, and rejects sheets with imperfections. The ability to draw from multiple paper sources, automatic duplexing, and in-line connectivity to finishing equipment makes it an optimal device for Transaction, TransPromo, Direct Mail, Booklets and Manuals.
