What does the role involve?
As intern in our department you will be part of the insert tools development team of business unit diamond, the team responsible for core drills, wall saws and cutting, grinding and slitting equipment. You’ll work closely with our experts to develop materials for use in diamond segments, which perform the cutting of materials such as reinforced concrete.
Your key responsibilities will be working self-dependently on subsets of larger development projects that drive the technology for the next generation of materials to be used in diamond saw blades and core bits. The tasks will necessitate collaboration with a number of internal teams including development, research, testing engineering and production. Your work will require a sound knowledge of materials science and mechanical testing as well as some interest in hands-on testing of construction tools and the respective inserts.
