For the bacheler thesis, I did an internship in the construction and development department of GILDEMEISTER Drehmaschinen GmbH.
GILDEMEISTER is a household name for high quality mill-turn machines and, from what I could see, really is building some of the best machines for manufacturing available.
The task I got was to design a magazine for overlong tools. I managed to develop a magazine that could hold twice as many and longer tools than the predecessor. In hindsight it was a realy interesting and fulfilling work, but I would have liked to go deeper into its detail engineering instead of writing my thesis.
