We are looking for a controls engineer to work out of our Zeeland office to assist the sales engineers with small projects.  Many times customers need a vision system installed with a small robot and conveyor.  Our controls engineer will order the needed automation, build the panel with the HMI screen, PLC, and other components needed.

We them deploy the small solution to the customer site, help with startup, and train the customers how to support their new automation.

You would be working in our automation lab which has all the latest equipment for testing, including several 6 axis robots, vision systems, fiber laser markers, conveyors, HMI's and PLC's.

Some of our current projects include programming our self driving MiR robot and designing new top modules that sit on the robot, such as some conveyor to load or unload boxes in the plant.
