Co-Innovate are seeking applicants for a project manager job vacancy at Truform Laser Dies Ltd, based in Dundalk, Co. Louth, Ireland, involving a 12-month project to design and develop new tooling and project management of innovative manufacturing processes including automated die cutting, for the print and packaging industry. The ideal candidate will have experience in CAD, CNC laser cutting, CNC processing and possess craftmanship skills, with the required knowledge to help automate systems and processes to build products. The position requires a degree in mechanical engineering, manufacturing engineering or equivalent, in addition to at least 3 months of relevant experience in an engineering design or manufacturing environment, and knowledge in mechatronics.

Truform is Ireland’s leading diemaker with more than 55% share in a very specialised market. Our main market is the print and packaging industry where we supply tooling to cut boxes and cartons in Folding Carton and Corrugated box sectors. All tooling orders are bespoke and all are manufactured and delivered within 3-4 days in what is a very agile business.

The manufacturing processes are a blend between CAD, CNC laser cutting, CNC processing and craft build in the finishing stages.

Some processes are completed in parallel and some in series.

We want to bring more automation into our operation and we believe, using the CAD we have, it would be possible to harness this to drive automated systems (Robots or Cobots or XY tables) to help build our products.

This role offers an opportunity to be involved in an exciting 12-month project to design and develop new tooling and associated innovative manufacturing processes for the carton and corrugated manufacturing industry.

The successful candidate will be supported throughout the project by the Northern Ireland Technology Centre at Queen’s University and will have the opportunity to gain engineering experience in the areas of design, manufacturing, automation and robotics for manufacture and manufacturing processes.

The candidate should be able to work on own initiative once an initial project review has been done. Candidate should have strong analytical skills to consider options and develop and implement solutions with a weekly (daily initially) reporting routine with advisors
