As an Optics Engineer, your main task will be to develop the complete optical systems of the lamps, such as reflectors or lens(es) systems, here including also the light sources.
Design optical surfaces within optical systems using CATIA V5 and Hella CAL environment
Define correct light sources for each function within single or multifunctional lamps such as LED’s or bulbs
You have to design correctly each part within optical system from technological point of view (draft angles, parting line, radiuses, etc)
Define materials and parameters for each part within optical systems
Perform light simulations (luminous intensity, illuminance, luminance) using Hella CAL system
Through CAL simulation programs you must to ensure that the legal and customer requirements are fulfilled
Understand legal requirements for automotive lamps for different standards : ECE, SAE, CCC, etc
Give your input and have a good communication with colleagues from other technical areas especially with the ones from mechanical design and electronic design
During qualification and homologation phase of the lamps, attend and give inputs during first photometric measurements.
Analyze and compare results achieved in the simulations with the first ones from measurements.
Support and troubleshoot for series lamps from production during COP measurements
Find alternative light sources for LED’s mainly due to discontinuation of the actual ones
In order to join us, you should have experience in the development of the optical systems within automotive industry
Experience in photometric measurements and results analysis would be an advantage
You are a graduate engineer in Mechanical / Electronics or Physics Engineering
You need to be fluent in English; German would be an advantage
Take the opportunity to reveal your potential within a global, family-run company that offers you the best possible conditions for progressing in your career.
