Prodrive technologies is a developer and manufacturer of world-class mechatronic products and systems. It comprises over 1100 employees and is one of the fastest growing companies in Europe.
Our organization is based on two groups: Development and Operations. The Development department is oriented at developing first-rate electronic, mechanic and software solutions. The operations department is responsible for production, assembly, testing and life-cycle-management of electronic products and systems in the range of 1 to more than a million pieces per year.
In addition to coordinate measurement machines, CNC machined products are also measured automatically in the CNC machining centers to validate product features and react on deviations early in the process.
Because CNC programs are highly focused on short process times, the process of in-machine measuring is always a tradeoff between speed and amount of features measured. The goal of the project is to develop new measuring strategies to find the optimum between machining time and acquired measuring data to guarantee quality products in shortest machine time possible. This includes the process architecture of in-machine measuring, concept design and the actual programming of the measuring cycles. Finally, as a proof of concept, you will use your improved measuring cycles to improve or create CNC machining programs used to manufacture actual products. Your solution will be implemented in our manufacturing process. Therefor the highest quality is needed in your internship.
There are only few companies in the world of technology which stand out. Prodrive Technologies is one of them. Our company was founded in 1993 by technical professionals from the Eindhoven University of Technology. Since then every year has shown a steep growth rate due to a very successful business concept in a relatively young organization (average age 28 years). Currently the total Prodrive Technologies organization consists of 1100 highly skilled employees (900 FTE), who are motivated, focused and result oriented.
