Hydrogen energy is one of the key factors for a sustainable future. The use of innovative fiber-reinforced
thermoplastics enables the production of pressure vessels for hydrogen storage, which at the same time
have a high lightweight potential and recyclability. In order to increase the productivity and quality of
pressure vessel manufacturing, a measuring methodology has to be developed in this thesis that enables
a precise characterization of the manufacturing process.

Your tasks

  • Research of the latest material testing for fiber reinforced plastics and pressure vessels
  • Development of metrological methodology to characterize the manufacturing process of pressure
    vessels, especially in the dome area
  • Programming for method-specific robot control (offline programming) and data processing

Our requirements

  • You are studying production, automatization technologies, material science or a comparable field
    of study
  • You have experience in fiber-reinforced plastics, CAM software and programming
  • An independent and precise manner of working
  • Good language skills in English

Your benefits

  • Ideal conditions for practical experience alongside your studies
  • Pioneering work in an exciting topic area of production technology
  • Excellent equipment of machines and devices
  • Cooperation in a committed and collegial team
  • Flexible working hours

Notice: You can write your project work or thesis with us immediately and in direct cooperation with
the Chair of Machine Tools. According to the guidelines of the RWTH Aachen University, the internship
is preferably to be completed at a manufacturing company and can only take place with us in
exceptional cases.

We look forward to receiving your application
