Robot Integrator

About Zeeko

Twenty-one years ago, Zeeko launched its range of optical polishing machines for the fabrication of high precision complex optics for telescopes, satellites and other high-end applications. As an applied Research company, it quickly became the machine of choice for many big science projects including the camera optics for the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter satellite and the primary mirrors for the massive European Extremely large Telescope. Soon it was the global leader for such applications and these successes lead the Company towards X-ray satellite optics, lithography optics and E-UV photomasks, defence optics and then to moulds for compact camera optics.

It was this last application that has inspired a new process for polishing metals, moulds, aerospace components, 3-D printed metal and plastic parts, orthopaedic implants and many other parts often for the mobile phone or automotive industries. This polishing is performed on much lower cost platforms and now for the first time Zeeko is a supplier to volume production processes where cycle time and continuity of supply and customer support are the keys to growth. And growth is certainly on the agenda with the Company growing at its fastest rate in Zeeko’s history.

This growth is leading to many new and interesting jobs with vacancies being created across the full range of disciplines in this innovative Company.  It needs researchers particularly with systems and controls experience, software engineers, process engineers and design engineers.  An entire process support team, controls engineers, robot researchers and robot integrators as well as machine build fitters with precision engineering experience – and service engineers with similar qualifications coupled with a willingness for travel.

We currently have an exciting opportunity for a Robot Integrator to join our team.  As a Robot integrator at Zeeko you will be responsible for building, setting up, and commission our robotic systems. This will include interacting with clients. The successful candidate will be capable of improving the system using critical thinking. The job will require the candidate to adapt to new technologies and challenges.


  • System automation.
  • Assembly and setup of our robotic systems.
  • Problem solving in a variety of hardware and software problems ranging from PC to mechanical alignment and wiring.
  • Documentation of customer systems and technical writing.
  • Work with Zeeko Research and Development team to improve the robotic system.
  • Perform service assignments.

Necessary skills and experience

  • Experience in system automation and relevant technologies.
  • Mechanical Fitting experience in relevant industry.
  • A basic understanding of robot principles including user frames and tool frames.
  • Industry experience in using wiring schematics.

Desirable Skills

  • Experience using FANUC Robots.
  • Experience in PLC programming and diagnostics.

Further Details

The post will be based at Zeeko’s Coalville offices in the UK. Further worldwide travel will be a feature of the post when required.

Remuneration will be very competitive, based on the candidate’s experience and qualifications.
