Description: 
  • Develop and continuously improve manufacturing, test and calibration equipment for image sensor, endoscope, laser, and LED optical systems.
  • Work closely with new product development engineers and test software engineers to understand requirements, develop robust, reliable, and reproducible camera/sensor test and calibration equipment.
  • Work closely with NPI process development engineers to understand requirements and develop robust and reliable manufacturing process equipment.
  • Development and improve efficiency of “mid-volume” manufacturing, test and calibration processes including:
    • Design, specify, prototype, document, procure, assemble, qualify, implement, and improve test equipment components and equipment.
    • Test flow development.
  • Documentation to include generating equipment specifications, validation protocols, assembly instructions, preventative maintenance, and calibration (PMC) in additional to CAD component and assembly drawings.
  • Analyze, debug and root cause measurement accuracy, reliability, repeatability, and reproducibility equipment issues.
  • Determine measurement system accuracy through application of metrology methods
  • Improve test and calibration process and procedures to improve quality, yield, and throughput of new products.
  • Develop and maintain compliance with the quality system.
  • Evaluate and select suppliers for mechanical and electrical equipment components/subsystems. Help resolve supplier quality issues.
  • Provide product development engineers with Design for Manufacturability and Design for Reliability input to ensure consistency/commonality among hardware and standard part selections across product/sub-assembly lines.
