Direct entry for mechanical engineering

Mechanical engineering – from construction and prototyping right through to production

Are you a mechanical engineer looking to further improve recognized quality in a state-of-the-art environment? As a leading innovator in drive technology, we give you the scope you desire.

Highly dynamic packed with power

A wide range of opportunities for mechanical engineers

Are you a mechanical engineer fascinated by precision, power and design? We will give the chance to develop the right mechanical components and solutions to suit every conceivable demand and field of application. The areas and tasks cover the entire spectrum of development, from product ideas to release for series production.

Gear units

Here, the development focus is on all kinds of standard gear units – worm, helical gear, bevel gear and parallel-shaft helical gear units, gear units unique to SEW, but also rotation-proof and robust planetary servo gear units, as well as stainless steel gear units equipped with acid-resistant, alkali-resistant and many other hygienic properties – in fact, all that a mechanical engineer's heart truly desires.

In gear unit development, you will use AutoCAD or SOLIDWORKS to compile engineering drawings. You will evaluate the stability and rigidity of mechanical structures and components using numerical simulations (FEM, MKS), or test the gearing, clearance, efficiency and noise levels of prototypes. You will also regularly consult with teams working in production & assembly with regard to costs and feasibility.

You can inject your special expertise into our technological expert groups for gear unit components (gearing, gaskets, lubricants) or calculation methods (FE methods, thermal analysis, acoustics).

Heavy industry

Your mechanical engineering expertise is also called for in the high-powered motion we pack into our industrial gear units. You can expect to develop customized and compact drive packages for an extremely wide range of applications, e.g. high-torque industrial gear units for the crane travel drives used in ports or powerful mixers, agitators and fans. Your expertise is also required in tunnel and road construction, where tunnel boring machines have to cut through different layers of earth, rock and materials, to continue developing our high-torque industrial gear units.

Industry 4.0

As a mechanical engineer at SEW-EURODRIVE, you can play a part in shaping the future by defining the architecture and processes for Industry 4.0-capable factories. For example, by developing concepts for urban logistics and intralogistics, designing new chassis and housing concepts, constructing load-bearing systems and integrated brake and lifting systems, or designing handling systems for mobile robots and cyber-physical production systems. It goes without saying that such a wide range of application areas offers a wealth of opportunities.

You could always perform product planning in product management, which involves observing the international markets and overseeing order and production management and material planning. Or are sales perhaps more up your street? Both office-based and field sales roles are available, including customer support, project planning and acquisition. There are also excellent opportunities for mechanical engineers in consulting. As a consulting engineer in the field of application technology, you will provide sales support and devise the best possible drive solutions for our customers' specific applications.

Besides a wide range of tasks and the chance to play a part in shaping the drive technology of tomorrow, we have much more to offer you. Personalized, flexible working models and an in-house daycare center exist to help you strike the optimum work-life balance. And our occupational health management scheme helps you stay fit and healthy. You can explore the full package of benefits that we offer employees under “ Our offer to you”.
