Research and Development Robotics Engineer

CCS (Lummus) is a leading provider of automated material handling and industrial automation solutions to customers around the country.  Our company is built on four key principles – Cooperation, Responsibility, Communication and Quality.  These principles are embedded in everything we do, and drive us to help our customers transform their operations.

Headquartered in Frederick, MD, we provide a full range of equipment, controls and software that helps customers address all aspects of their material handling and industrial automation needs. We serve a wide variety of customers in the distribution, e-commerce, fulfillment, mail/parcel and government sectors.  Our focus is always on the customer, and we take great pride in helping our customers realize their material handling goals. 


The Research and Development (R&D) Robotics Engineer is part of a matrixed team responsible for full product lifecycle developing of material handling robotic solutions including conception, designing, testing, and building robots, robotic cells and end of arm tooling that is safe, high quality and reliable. Their designs are economical to manufacture, purchase and maintain. These engineers use computer-aided design, drafting and computer-aided manufacturing (CADD/CAM) systems to design systems and create programs for ABB, Fanuc, Motoman and Kuka robots. The Robotics engineer will work cross functionally, in a matrixed environment, to understand customers’ needs and then produce customized solutions. In addition, robotics engineers are responsible for developing cost proposals, efficiency studies, and quality control reports. Robotics Engineers who have a successful history of creating material handling solutions using emerging technology for the E-Commerce, Warehousing or Postal industries are highly encouraged to apply.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities
Design, program, install and maintain robotic material handling solutions, including end-of-arm tooling, that integrates with robust conveyor systems, sorting devices and other peripherals, such as welders or controllers.
Plan automated robotic systems that increase production volume or precision in high-throughput operations, such as automated sorting, moving or stacking of materials.
Analyze, evaluate, and document robotic projects.
Install, calibrate, operate, document, and aid in robot maintenance.
Conduct research on emerging robotic technology to create new material handling solution offering and improve customer capabilities.
Review or approve designs, calculations, or cost estimates.
Write algorithms or programming code for ad hoc robotic applications.
Process or interpret signals or sensor data.
Conduct research into the feasibility, design, operation, or performance of robotic mechanisms, components, or systems, such as planetary rovers, multiple mobile robots, reconfigurable robots, or man-machine interactions.
