Find your challenging tech internship

Matthijs (age 24):

I studied mechanical engineering. In my last year, I chose to graduate at Lan.

 

What I liked most about the tech internship? The assignment was addressed as a real project, including design review meetings and advice from a project manager. However, the best part was that we designed, ordered, built and tested everything ourselves in just 5 months. We learned a lot by realising the whole project process from start to completion. And it was a success too!

With three other students, we got a great internship assignment: develop a loading unit to test products at actual speed in our machines.

 

Two of us were involved in software development and together with another student, I worked on the mechanical part.

The importance of this assignment?

Until then, machines at Lan were always tested at a lower speed by placing products by hand on the supply conveyor before the line was connected to a filler machine. With our loading unit the capacity went up to 70 pouches per track per minute. The benefit: we are now able to test more realistically and solve possible errors earlier in the process. All of this thanks to the effort and commitment of four interns! And three of us are still working at Lan.
