Experiences of Jens aan den Boom during Internship
For my Mechatronics study, at Fontys University of Applied Sciences Eindhoven, I was looking for an internship. I preferred an internship within a company specialized in industrial automation, which interests me.
Looking in my region I quickly came across van Daal engineering. During the interview a personalized assignment was drawn up.
As part of a new production line I had to develop the control of the pallettransport. To do so, a PLC and WinCC application need to be developed, programmed and tested using TIA Portal.
The development of these applications was successful and the software is ready for commissioning. Unfortunately, the commissioning is planned after my internship is finished. Van Daal engineering is giving me the opportunity to rejoin them during the commissioning, and still be able see my software in action.
Furthermore, during my internship I visited the customer to analyze the existing production lines and a robot supplier where I experienced how software is tested in practice.
