Join ABB and work in a team that is dedicated to creating a future where innovative digital technologies allow greater access to cleaner energy.

ABB design and produce traction motors that allows us to build the perfect solution for train operators – regardless of train type, power range or geographical location. Furthermore, the portfolio covers traction motors for off-road vehicles in the e-mobility segment. Each motor is tailor-made to customer requirements and to the operation conditions of each vehicle that it powers; enabling superior efficiency, lowest energy consumption and high reliability.

A traction motor is developed trough an engineer to order process, considering number of design rules, standards and customer requirements. The active parts, stator and rotor, of an electric motor are most critical for the performance to convert electric energy to mechanical power. Design automation to create 2D drawings and 3D documentation of the active parts is considered to enable reduction of mechanical engineering hours in the projects as well increasing the quality of the product. We want to evaluate what would be the best processes and tools considering the design interfaces between electrical designer and mechanical designer, CAD/PDM software, design rules, standards and customer requirements for the product. Your task would be to map our present design process and explore options for the future.
