Mechanical design engineer

Bastian Wolff,
Hauni Maschinenbau GmbH,
Hamburg (Germany)

My field of work:
As a mechanical engineer, I am responsible for many technical and organizational tasks with regard to the high-performance cigarette machine PROTOS-M8. These include working on special customer inquiries, specific construction support, and the introduction of new developments for the machine.

My work day:
I always face new challenges at Hauni. This means that my everyday work has very little routine about it. There are new and exciting tasks to complete all the time, whether they involve creating offers in response to customer inquiries, analyzing problems in the event of faults, or close cooperation with other departments, e.g. assembly or technical customer service. Our customers are the focus at all times.

What’s a typical workday like for me? After receiving a new customer request, I first create a suitable offer. This includes individual solution concepts, a cost estimate, and a specific schedule. Risk awareness and figures based on past experience play an important role in order to be able to offer our customers the best possible service. As soon as a concept has been created and has reached the order phase, I aid colleagues in its constructive implementation all the way up to integration in a test machine or support in the field.

In the event of questions from assembly or technical customer service, I work closely with colleagues from the areas in question to quickly find solutions and offer assistance. Part of this is incorporating changes into production documents. Direct contact with internal and external customers is always exciting and varied for me. It is frequently necessary to carry out different tasks in parallel, which is particularly challenging and prevents the emergence of routines.

My route to Hauni:
After studying mechanical engineering at Fachhochschule Hamburg (now HAW Hamburg (Hamburg University of Applied Sciences)), I joined Hauni directly as an engineer. That was in 2002. I had previously gained experience during internships in various small companies. I was impressed above all by the good reputation that the company enjoyed in Hamburg and the surrounding area, as well as by its size. The job opportunity in special machine construction also fitted in perfectly with my interests, which made the decision to join Hauni even easier. During the first few years, I worked in series production and order construction on an old filter attachment machine, the MAX-90E, and then on the high-performance filter attachment machine MAX-M8. I am now responsible for the PROTOS-M8 as the deputy product head.

Why Hauni?
In the twelve years that I have worked in the company, I have repeatedly had new, interesting experiences and learned new things. Hauni has enabled me and continues to enable me to develop professionally and personally. The varied projects and the opportunity to work internationally reconfirm my decision to work for Hauni year after year.
