Methods for increased CNC Machining Performance


Methods for increased CNC Machining Performance


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 mostly based on two groups: Development and Operations. The Development department is oriented at developing first-class 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.


Many methods, strategies are used within Prodrive Technologies to create fast and reliable CNC machining programs. These methods vary from high-end measuring equipment to measure cutting tool characteristics, custom database structures to efficiently store machining knowledge, to the most advanced CAM software with integrated cutting force simulation.
You will research which of these methods or innovations has the most potential for further improvement or which new method can be implemented. Whatever has the most potential or fits your skillset best to improve will be the center of your graduate assignment. Finally, as a proof of concept, you will use your improved method/process/tool to improve or create CNC machining programs. If proven successfully your solution will directly be implemented in our current production facilities.


  • Pre-study document (literature study) of possible solutions.
  • Design of chosen solutions.
  • Implementation of chosen solutions.
  • Testing of chosen solutions.

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!

Benefits as a student

Next to the benefits which are true for every Prodriver that are listed below, some special benefits must be highlighted for students. First of all you will be treated as a real Prodriver. Your opinion and ideas will be heard and treated as full. Next to this you will get the chance to work with colleagues with a very high level of knowledge in their field and get the chance to use our world class lab and production facilities for your graduation assignment.
