About their graduation assignment at Lan!

Penny & Diederik about their graduation:

During our Electrical Engineering study at Avans' s-Hertogenbosch, we opted for a major Industrial Automation.

 

We had no doubts about our graduation internship: we wanted to do this at Lan Handling Technologies, already known to us through, among other things, holiday work in the summer period. The most important reason? Lan’s internship assignments include all disciplines, from design to realisation and testing. So you really deliver a physical end product. Very cool to see something like this arise.

We carried out a so-called duo internship assignment in six months.

 

Together with two Mechanical Engineering students, we developed a new tray tilter stacker to dispose of remaining pouches, with improvements in the field of technology, operation, use and costs. It was important for Lan to update this module in order to maintain a competitive portfolio. Ultimately, we delivered a working prototype. With a significant cost reduction and simplified installation.

Remote support

From our internship supervisor to project managers and technicians; basically everyone was ready to help. But at the same time independent working was greatly stimulated. The outbreak of the corona virus took this even further. We worked from home for a longer period, our weekly progress meeting took place digitally. A kind of “remote support”. Fortunately, no delay. In short: happy that we graduated successfully. And that we were allowed to stay; we have been employed by Lan since the beginning of September!

  • arrow-checkmarkMaking your own choices
  • arrow-checkmarkOrganise a demo: presentation and explanation of the choices and result

A brand new building and a 'desk with a view'.

Lan Handling Technologies offers great facilities to carry out your internship or graduation assignment. For us as engineers, it is extra nice that you really see the machines that you design yourself ‘come to life’ in the production hall!

Our experience:
"We enjoyed working in a multidisciplinary team. Together with the mechanical students, we had many useful discussions; can we solve this issue with software? Or does it have to be solved mechanically? You learn a lot from that. "
