Advancement of Additive Manufacture Capability
This is an exciting opportunity to join the mechanical engineering team, working on a project investigating additive manufacturing (AM) and whether it is a worthwhile investment for Tait. AM, also known as 3D printing, is a transformative approach to industrial production that enables the creation of lighter, stronger parts and systems. 3D printing has been in use at Tait for some time, however the capability of the available technology has advanced beyond what we currently use it for. The overall goal of your project will therefore be to answer the question; are we better to continue to maintain minimal internal capabilities and rely on external services for AM, or should we invest in improving our internal capability? As well as being fully integrated into the mechanical team and supported by senior engineers, you will work together with our production and customisation teams to identify where AM could provide benefits to current projects. The outcome will be to produce a report that captures the current state with respect to AM at Tait, compared with externally available capabilities and usage, which also covers near-future technology expectations. Ideally, you'll already have an understanding of an interest in Additive Manufacturing, however as well as the technical knowledge, we are interested in someone who can put forward a solid business case, taking into account the return on investment and other considerations for building internal capability vs external capability. You will be expected to work with external vendors and consult with industry experts, so relationship building skills and the expertise to gather data and draw meaningful conclusions are also beneficial.
