Jonas designs new tools

Jonas Andersson is a product engineer and develops new tools for the factory. It’s a job that requires creativity, problem-solving skills, and a great amount of technical expertise.

In some cases, Jonas Andersson’s workday might involve discussing technical solutions with his project manager. Another day, he might work in the 3D program Solid Works to develop new foundry or cutting tools – or prepare for a business trip to Germany, where he will meet with a new client. No day is ever the same.

"We have to be able to keep a lot of balls in the air. We always have several projects going on at any given time,” explains Jonas Andersson.

How did you end up at Ljunghäll?

"I participated in a one-year high school engineering training course after enrolling in a technical program in high school. During the training, I had a ten-week internship at Ljunghäll, and after that I got a summer job here. Then I did an apprenticeship for 1.5 years, with a focus on project technology.

Jonas found this to be a good path into a technically advanced field. He was tired of school after high school and didn’t want to go through an extended engineering education program. He’s been working full-time for two years now — and is confident that there are opportunities to develop professionally within the company.

"I think it’s a great place to work, with a wonderfully friendly vibe.”

The company is growing like mad right now – and Jonas believes that the future is bright.

“Light metals is a big industry. While there won’t be as many diesel and gasoline motors in the future, there will be more and more electric motors, and that opens up an opportunity to produce parts for them. Truck manufacturers always want parts to be as light as possible, because they help minimize fuel consumption. That makes aluminum is a good choice.”
