Description of the job
Start date: 1st July 2019
Duration: 12 Months
The internship will support current Additive Manufacturing (AM) research and technology within the Airbus Central Research and Technology (CR&T) team.
CR&T research disruptive AM technologies to support ‘generation-after-next’ products in all Airbus business unit divisions – from civil aircraft and helicopters to defence and space. The team also supports the AM tech qualification through expertise gained through previous research into the relevant technology.
Tasks & accountabilities
The research covers all aspects of the AM value chain:
Design for AM – 3D solid modelling part and build design
Materials characterization and development – e.g. high performance titanium, aluminium, steel and inconel.
AM process characterization, simulation and development,
Post processing technologies – inspection, heat treatments and surface improvement
The internship will be based in the new Airbus Wing Integration Centre state of the art facility opened in June 2018. The placement will involve hands on practical AM experience within the facility alongside theoretical research to support to the AM Tech qualification activities and upstream additive manufacturing technology and applications. Examples of the upstream opportunities are the use of multi material additive manufacturing and exploitation of the design and manufacturing freedom offered by AM to create unique performance meta materials that were previously not possible via conventional manufacturing methods.
This job requires an awareness of any potential compliance risks and a commitment to act with integrity, as the foundation for the Company’s success, reputation and sustainable growth.
You must be an undergraduate for the full duration of the placement, studying towards a degree in the following:
Manufacturing Engineering (Aerospace a preference but not essential)
