Why Work for Us?

More than five decades ago, Kollmorgen developed the direct drive technology that enables some of today’s most remarkably innovative machines.

We helped engineers build the first self-contained artificial heart. Our end-to-end onsite engineering resulted in China’s first air-jet loom for manufacturing, and we’ve been a pioneer in hybrid motor technology for transportation for two decades.

We work together to win together.

Bakusou kyoudai lets go! -This Japanese racing manga-cartoon was probably my biggest childhood influence. I got crazy about RC-cars, building my own from component level to compete with friends.

AGVs, although not directly suitable for the racing-track, bring that childhood fun back! The open “garage-lab-style” environment here is like the “Bakusou kyoudai pitstop”. Kollmorgen gives you a lot of flexibility with a focus on creativity and openness.

I came across Kollmorgen's AGVs on a site while working for an RGV company. Considering the “Made in China 2025 plan” with its heavy focus on intelligent automation, I gained a huge interest in working for Kollmorgen.

My job is to fit our solutions at customer sites through engineering, support, on-site training, and troubleshooting. It involves a lot of travel and meeting new people.

When I was young, and our household appliances had problems, my father always asked me to help him repair them. This had a deep impact on me that led to a strong interest in machinery.  Because of this, I choose Mechanical Engineering and Automation as my major. I like to learn and prefer to apply what I have learned. My work is never boring.  I am fortunate to have the opportunity to work in a team where I am continuously involved in both research and the development of new ideas. Life is a journey and Kollmorgen gives me the platform to continuously develop.

As an application engineer, I need to help customers solve technical problems, often by myself. However, I am never alone when dealing with a customer. I know that no matter where I am, my colleagues at Kollmorgen will do their best to support me. I act as a communication link between China and Sweden. In this role, it is important for me to clearly explain the Chinese customer’s needs to my Swedish colleagues. This is a very important part of my work. Although there are cultural differences between China and Sweden, my colleagues in Sweden are very professional. They take pride in ensuring that they understand the Chinese market and customer needs. This requires a deep knowledge of our customer’s products and customization requirements. 

At present, we are in a phase of rapid development with a big focus on the automation industry. I am confident that Kollmorgen’s products and technology are well suited for the challenges that the Chinese market has to offer. I believe Kollmorgen has a very bright future in the Chinese market.

As a teenager my French teacher asked me to write a letter to “my-future-self”. Years later, after a couple of years doing non-tech jobs, I found this letter. I didn’t remember that I had written, “Engineer” as my future occupation but, in hindsight, the fact that I’ve memorized the number of Pi to 400 decimals probably says a lot!

My main responsibility is to understand our client’s needs and prioritize the implementation of different stages and projects. It’s both technical and creative at the same time. You have to think beyond the current technology and try to foresee the future. To be on this journey with likeminded and supportive people is really great!
