Design Engineer

Boart Longyear has been a leading provider of drilling products and services to the global minerals industry for over 125 years. As the industry’s only integrated drilling services and products provider, we combine engineering excellence, global manufacturing facilities and the most experienced drilling services group in the industry.  With engineering teams in the US, Canada, Germany, Poland and Australia Boart Longyear offers an excellent opportunity to join a global engineering team.

Due to a strong product development pipeline a fantastic opportunity is now available for an experienced Mechanical Design Engineer to join Boart Longyear’s APAC Engineering Group.

Based in Adelaide and reporting to the APAC Engineering Manager your primary functions will be to:

  • Investigate, research and execute design and development work of exploration drilling rigs and associated equipment with a strong focus on safety.
  • Provide engineering support to the operational and sales teams with regards to drilling rig modifications and improvements.
  • Research of new drilling equipment, materials and manufacturing technologies, design and drafting, product development, on site testing, and general technical product support.

Position responsibilities will include but not be limited to:  

  • Working effectively in a team environment interacting with peer engineers, operational personnel, Maintenance, Sourcing, suppliers and product line managers.
  • Develop and facilitate delivery of engineering designs for drill rigs and auxiliary equipment based on safety, benchmarked testing, best practices and new technologies.
  • Question the norm to drive continuous improvement of equipment, products and processes being used in the field.
  • Undertake engineering calculations and develop specifications necessary for the justification of designs.
  • Document designs and specifications including 3D modelling, manufacturing drawings, process specifications, DFMEA and risk assessments.
  • Work closely with and provide support to other members of the engineering team through the sharing of ideas and knowledge as required.
  • Analyse test results, prepare detailed reports and recommendation documentation.
  • Development of product & site support literature.
  • Working within project timelines & budgets.

The successful applicant will possess the following:

  • Degree in Mechanical or Mechatronic Engineering, or related discipline with at least 5 years of related work experience.
  • Experience with 3D CAD modelling, ideally using Creo and an understanding of PLM systems (Windchill).
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills that will enable effective communication with all levels of the business.
  • An understanding of drawing standards and geometric tolerancing.
  • Knowledge of materials and surface treatments.
  • Experience working to Australian and International design standards (e.g. AS1170, AS4100 AS4024)
  • Understanding of hydraulic systems, hydraulics design experience will be looked upon favourably
  • Flexibility to occasionally travel to mine sites as required (intrastate, interstate and international).

Applicants who have had previous exposure to the design of heavy equipment and have an appreciation of what automation can provide to these types of machines will be looked upon favourably.  If the above description sounds like you and you’re the type of engineer who gets a kick out of seeing your project through all stages of the design process, then this role is for you.  It’s a promise that you will see your designs, first hand, at work in the real world! As part of an established and experienced engineering team, you will be supported in all aspects of your continued technical and personal development.

With several complex projects currently in the works and more in the pipeline, it is an exciting time to join the team.
