Position Summary

The Mechanical CAD Drafter (MCD) is responsible for CAD modeling/detailed drawings for new and existing CECO compressor products and technologies. Equally important, the MCD is responsible for CAD modeling/detailed drawings for day–to–day workload to support customer orders of CECO’s existing line of products.

Position Key Accountabilities:
  • Create 3D CAD models for component(s) and assemblies using Autodesk Inventor for new product development and customer orders.
  • Generate engineering drawings and BOM’s for mechanical components and assemblies using Autodesk Inventor.
  • Generate high quality, static 3D model renderings to support sales and marketing using Autodesk Fusion 360.
  • Proficient in practice of ASME standards for drawings including: ASME Y14.5, ASME Y14.35 and ASME Y14.100.
  • Work with team of engineers to improve designs based on results of computational fluid dynamic (CFD) simulations in an iterative approach to optimize design performance using CFD.
  • Work with team of engineers to improve designs based on results of finite element analysis (FEA) to ensure mechanical integrity and optimize mechanical design.
  • Quantify CECO compressor valve efficiency and effective flow area using CECO’s in–house flow bench.
  • Source and manufacture pre–production prototypes, conduct performance & reliability tests in–house or at 3rd parties to confirm real–world performance vs simulations.
  • Create & provide written documentation for products including: bill of materials, work / assembly instructions, installation / maintenance manuals, replacement parts list, and product data sheets.
  • Proficient with Autodesk Inventor, Autodesk Vault, and AutoCAD. Knowledge of Inventor CAM and Fusion 360 are preferred.
  • Proficient with Microsoft Office software including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook.
  • Demonstrated ability to work with a broad team of engineers including managers of various engineering disciplines.
  • Creativity for new ideas without the fear of failure.
  • Ability and experience in building skills and supporting the creativity of others.
  • Motivation and initiative to implement process improvements.
Minimum Education:

Associate Degree in Computer Aided Drafting & Design from an ABET–accredited program or equivalent related experience

Minimum Experience:

Two years experience on professional CAD and drafting with design focus on reciprocating compressors preferred

Physical Requirements and Work Environment:
  • Ability to maintain composure during periods of high stress with a highly developed sense of urgency.
  • Regular onsite attendance is required.
  • Ability to multitask project related activities in the office.
  • Visual acuity to process work tasks.
  • Exert up to 20 pounds of force occasionally and/or up to 10 pounds frequently and/or up to 5 pounds constantly to move objects.
