As a production automation engineer, you are responsible for the further optimisation, improvement and efficiency of the production lines. The work is very diverse and every day is different. You might walk around the factory to see where there’s potential and the next moment you are consulting other departments about a new process to be developed. Or you work with ABB robots, which are programmed with RobotStudio, and find out how we can apply the newest techniques, such as cobots, vision and AGVs. Sharp as you are, you are our troubleshooter for complex malfunctions or when your colleagues from the Technical Department are unable to help.
