Mechanical Design Engineer

We, a high-tech machine manufacturer based in Aalter, specialise in the design, production and commissioning of printing machines using the pad printing process. We also supply all accessories, including inks, printing plates and printing pads.

Our customers are global players in the fields of pharma, food, medical devices, but also cosmetics, toys and automotive.

We are proud of our status as Siemens OEM partner from the very beginning.

Everyone @PI does their bit to achieve our goals. Customer satisfaction requires commitment from everyone and the will to want to accelerate that last metre. “Teamwork makes the dream work” could be our slogan.

Printing machine


As part of the team, you will help design the high-tech printing machines.

We design modular and unit-wise, usually starting from previous designs, either as an idea or as a ready-to-use unit.

The design takes into account customer requirements, which can be very specific.

Use of standard available components and manufacturability of parts are also important design parameters.

As a design engineer, you will also draw up an assembly plan including the necessary calibration steps.

Knowledge of electrical wiring is a must. Knowledge of machine controls is a plus, not a must.

Our quality requirements are high. After all, the machines we make print with accuracies better than 0.1 mm.

Today it concerns a machine for an Indian customer active in pharma, tomorrow a machine for a Finnish customer active in Medical Devices. This is a very varied job in a high-tech environment for customers who are often world leaders in their field!

You are in direct contact with internal production, assembly and project management.

Naturally, we offer a competitive salary.
