Job description
Position Description
Capable of leading the controls design and programming of a large, custom, automatic assembly machine project from concept to acceptance. Responsible for controls activities including the direction of controls engineers, electrical engineers, controls software designers and robot programmers assigned to the team. Interfaces directly with Project Managers and is capable of communicating directly with the customer. Has decision:making authority for issues related to the concept, design, programming, debug, and qualification of the equipment. Accountable for reviewing the budget, and schedule to determine feasibility; then stays within the project milestone requirements.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities

:Participate in initial equipment conceptual development and carefully balance product specifications, process requirements, layout complexity, cost, and lead:time limits.
:Architect, write, and debug PLC ladder logic with an emphasis on generating code that is organized, structured, documented, maintainable and reusable. PLC code will interact with subsystems such as motion systems, robots, machine vision, advanced metrology systems, Manufacturing Execution System (MES), and 3rd party equipment.
(ANSI/RIA15.06/OSHA compliant) control reliable safety systems for safeguarding robots, gantries, conveyors, and other high volume manufacturing equipment.
:Generate aesthetically simple HMI screens for complex machinery while providing sufficient feedback for troubleshooting.
:Select and size electrical and electromechanical components such as servos.
:Interfaces with Mechanical Engineering team; attends design reviews, provides feedback on control interfaces, makes estimates of the timing and performance
:Create machine interactions with plant:wide Manufacturing Execution System (MES) to communicate product acceptability, machine status, and process variables.
:Characterize and validate automated processes using a data driven statistical approach such as Capacity test, Capability test (Gage Repeatability and Reproducibility test, Cpk, etc),
:Assists with training and evaluating controls engineering team members

Skills and Experience

:Advanced proficiency programming industrial equipment:
:Ladder logic PLCs (Allen Bradley RSLogix 5000 or Siemens S7/TIA Portal)
:Human Machine Interface (HMI / GUI : AB Panelview or Ignition)
:Field bus Networks (AB DeviceNet, Ethernet IP, Profinet, Safety rated field bus networks)
:Serial communication (RS:232) between PLCs and instruments
:Ethernet communications between machine PLCs and database systems
:Demonstrated excellence in programming multi:station PLCs. Must have a well:defined methodology for maintaining code structure and organization. Ability to program state machines for complex processes which involve multi:station parallel processing, pick and place automation, data acquisition, and PID control. Proven ability to design fault:tolerant systems with error handling and recovery.
:Proficiency programming variable frequency drives
:Exposure to a wide variety of production machinery, industrial sensors, and equipment (LVDT and pressure transducers, dispense systems, temperature controllers, DC nutrunner torque controllers, current and power meters, etc)
:Experience programming Cartesian, SCARA and Articulated robots (Fanuc, Denso, ABB)
:Experience with Vision systems (Cognex, Keyence, Fanuc)
:Proficiency with process integration and electromechanical / mechatronic systems
:In depth knowledge of Electrical Standards (NFPA79, National Electric code, UL508A).
:In depth knowledge of Safety standards (ANSI/RIA15.06, OSHA).
:Experience creating technical specifications for automated manufacturing equipment is highly desired
:Knowledge of production quality metrics is a plus

:BS/MS Electrical Engineering (or equivalent : Majors in: Controls and Co
