As a mechanical engineer at ASML, you work as a creative problem-solver that sees your innovative ideas mature into real operational systems. You’ll design, build and test exceptionally high-performance systems.

Driving progress and innovation

The mechanical development department is responsible for developing and sustaining solutions for products, tools and equipment related to the mechanical applications of our machines. The team works with other departments such as electrical engineering, software engineering, and sourcing and procurement to continuously advance and improve new and existing designs. The systems they create can cope with environments that don’t exist anywhere else: high-speed robotics, liquid metals, high temperatures, flammable gases, vacuums, and high-power lasers.

For mechanical engineers at ASML, every day is different and filled with new challenges. They have a wide range of responsibilities such as coming up with ideas, designing parts, undertaking design reviews and testing prototypes. In addition, they implement parts into products, monitoring their performance and troubleshooting any issues that may arise. All of this requires coming up with creative solutions, out-of-the-box ideas and collaboration. From working on complex illumination optical fibers to 3D printing of modules, no two days are the same.

A look at the wafer stage

The wafer stage is one of the key modules in our lithography systems that our mechanical engineers work on.

The stage moves two wafer tables simultaneously, each holding a silicon wafer. While one wafer is being exposed to extreme ultraviolet light that contains the chip pattern to be printed, the other is measured by the machine’s metrology sensors to optimize alignment.

The wafer tables move electromagnetically, allowing frictionless acceleration up to 7g. This is where mechatronics, optics design and metrology come together to deliver the accuracy and speed needed from our lithography systems.

Working on this critical component is just one of the perks of working at ASML as a mechanical engineer – but there is so much more.
