Automation & Control: Gluing process
Prodrive technologies is a developer and manufacturer of world-class electronics. It comprises over 1300 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.
To be able to produce these amounts of products Prodrive Technologies invests in flexible and smart automations that are developed in-house. One of our ongoing projects is focusing on automation of the process where glue is applied to strengthen components on PCBAs which are exposed to an application environment with high loads of shock and vibration.
This internship assignment will focus on the automation for gluing process. Within Prodrive Technologies there already are some robot solutions which are dispensing fully automatically, however none of these transports a PCBA in-line with other machines. In this assignment you are responsible for the design of integrating a PCBA line through a robot solution.
- Pre-study document (literature study) of the state of the art to explore possible solutions.
- Design of chosen solutions.
- 2D/3D drawings of the design.
- Dependent on duration internship: Test setup to verify the feasibility of the solution.
Important note: all our graduation assignments are dependent on time. Please see them as an example of the many great things you can do at Prodrive Technologies. If you have the same passion for technology as we do, we always have an assignment for you!
