In an increasingly global and competitive world of automotive manufacturing, engineers need to accurately model and predict manufacturing reality years before any production starts. Cosma Assembly Technology helps our customers achieve world-class manufacturing by using the latest technologies to design and validate automotive assembly processes and concepts. Our customers include some of the largest Magna production facilities around the globe. Cosma Assembly Technology is located in Brampton, Ontario, and is a division of Magna International. Our business is engineering, but our greatest asset is the people who will drive the business forward. Our capabilities include 3D process design & simulation, 3D ergonomics analysis, fixture design, off-line programming, discrete event simulation, and the continuous improvement of existing assembly applications.
The Design Simulation Engineer develops design solutions based on expected performance, manufacturability, assembly and serviceability. Communicates with external suppliers to give direction on tool design intent and drawing package deliverables as per customer specifications. Creates detailed robot simulations to OLP level and prepares supporting documentation.
