Your challenge

Are you the enthusiastic, talented intern we’re looking for?
The challenge of this internship is to understand how to run a Finite Element Analysis tool used to simulate the Blow Molding manufacturing process so as to integrate into the part design as well as into the material selection process the constraints coming from the manufacturing process.

Your responsibilities

You will be working with a team of mechanical engineers to develop new products for Philips Avent. You will be working from an initial project description, but you have the opportunity to shape the assignment to match your development goals.

Your main activities will be:
· To work on products directly used by babies and mothers.
· Contribute to the development of future baby bottles and soothers by the mean of including the influence of the relaxation behavior into the parts’ design as well as the material selection (so mechanical properties)
· The scope of the project would be to:
o Define the type of mechanical properties needed to perform such simulations
o Define a list of companies, entities capable to characterize such properties
o Run correlation studies on existing products (baby bottles or cups)
o Investigate potential new materials / new geometries
o Described and test how to transfer the outcome of such simulation (mesh, internal stress, thermal status…) to a different Finite Element Method tool to perform structural analysis (bending, press-fit, drop tests…)
