Build Large Technician


Mechanical engineering

In a nutshell


Veldhoven, Netherlands




3-7 years


High school

Job Category

Mechanical engineering




In April 2021 EXE started production of its first EXE prototypes.
The EXE will be built according to a production process where the EXE is split up into multiple Mini Machines (e.g. modular building), reducing cycle time because Mini Machines can be built and qualified in parallel.
Once qualified these Mini Machines will be internally transported to a build cabin. In these cabins each Mini Machine will become part of a full functional machine (system). This entire system is assembled, tested and qualified before being dismantled and leaving the cleanroom towards the customer.
In the future there may be a different approach taken where instead of assembling and qualifying the total EUV machine in Veldhoven, the Mini Machines will be shipped to our customers directly, after assembly and passing the Factory Acceptance Test. Final Assembly and System Qualification will then be executed in the field, at the customer site, instead of in Veldhoven.

Production starts in low volume ramping up towards 2025. Technicians will be cross trained to be able to work on multiple activities/competences. EXE will be organized as a LEAN Factory with Technicians working in a Natural team setup.

Job Mission

EXE5000 Manufacturing is responsible for the Build, Qualification, De-assemble and Install of Mini machine systems and Complete Source and Scanner systems. The complete production process of the most advanced machines takes place within this sector.

Job Description

EXE (EUV Factory) Manufacturing is responsible for the Build, Qualification, De-assemble and Install of the Mini Machines and Complete systems. The Build Large Technician assembles, adjusts, qualifies and delivers ASML Mini machines and Full Functioning machines according to agreed specifications and delivery times with the mindset to continuously improve factory processes and his/her own way of working.

Working in a new factory with a new team requires a flexible mindset, especially because volumes are low and because of the ramp up in the first years.
