Our team of engineers is looking for an intern that will improve the camming of the carboard in our automated packaging machines.

  • Make an inventory of current camming and sensors used
  • Measure the deviations and perform analysis on these data
  • Add sensors if appropriate and adapt algorithm
  • Build and test prototype(s)

You will be using the following tools and techniques:

  • Beckhoff TwinCAT
  • C/C++
  • MS Office


  • Self starting
  • Independent
  • Creative
  • Flexible

We offer

  • Experienced supervisor
  • Opportunity to be part of the engineering team of a leading company in packaging solutions
  • Internship compensation
