Intern or thesis student- influence of different direct fastening tool designs on nail fastening quality (38761) Start early 2017 for 6 months
Powder-Actuated Direct Fastening is one of the most advanced methods in the global construction industry to attach parts to a base material. Here dedicated tools are used to drive hardened steel nails into concrete or steel. Recent tests have shown that the design of these tool and in particular the kinetics of the driving piston significantly influence the fastening quality. In the scope of this internship two existing Hilt tools with fundamentally different designs shall be examined to derive recommendations for future tool developments.
We provide leading-edge tools, technologies, software and services for the global construction sector. We have a proud heritage, built over 75 years, and a worldwide reputation for pioneering products and first-rate service.
Innovation is our lifeblood, and we create around 30 new products each year. With some 23,000 people in more than 120 countries, we’re a great place for you to showcase your talent as you learn, grow and carve-out your career.
As intern in our department you’ll be part of an interdisciplinary Development team with direct contact to colleagues in other departments like Testing or Numerical Simulation. You’ll work closely with our experts to develop recommendations on how to optimize Direct Fastening tools in terms of fastening quality.
Your key responsibilities will be to capture knowledge already existing in the organization, update/extend the data based on theoretical analyzes and derive hypotheses explaining varying fastening qualities. Subsequently you will modify the investigated tools under the guidance of our testing experts to validate these hypotheses. Based on the results you will derive recommendations for future tool developments.
We’ll give you the tools you need to excel in your internship, including one-to-one coaching. You’ll enjoy a rare combination of autonomy and camaraderie, as you’ll manage your own project while being part of a friendly team.
You’ll not just be another pair of hands but a fully integrated team member with lots of self-responsibility. From there, we’ll trust you to do whatever it takes to deliver outstanding results. Go the extra mile and we’ll reward you with strategic development discussions and career opportunities.
We’ll support you even before you start with us through relocation and integration support. With the international interns community at Hilti you’ll never be bored. Further, the snow-draped mountains, crystal-clear lakes and marvelous landscapes in the Happy Valley invite for lots of outdoor activities.
We have an excellent mix of people, which we believe makes for a more vibrant, more innovative, more productive team. So, if you have no knowledge of construction, that’s fine with us. We’re more interested in your ability, commitment and drive to succeed.
We take our time to get to know you. As part of your recruitment process, you’ll get to talk to your internship coach as well as your HR Manager who both can answer some of your burning questions.
