Internships

Mechanical Engineer Intern

JOB ID – INT-01

Description
The Belka-2 Lunar Zebro rover has 7 motors; 6 for locomotion and 1 to actuate the solar panel. currently, if a leg or the solar panel needs to hold its position an electrical current needs to be applied to the motor to counteract the mechanical torque which is applied by the weight of the structure. The electrical department has requested the structures department to design a mechanical system that only allows the legs and the solar panel to rotate when torque is applied by the motor and is not allowed to rotate when torque is applied to the motor.

This requires a redesign of the power train and motor bushes. The gearbox and the housings need to be adapted in such a way that it does not affect the range of motion of the other components. The redesigned power train is meant to be integrated into the next generation of the moon rover, Belka-3.

This assignment would make a good internship because it falls into the design-build-test philosophy. A conceptual design needs to be developed based on clear design requirements set by Lunar Zebro. The manufacture of the new design needs to be planned. and the new power train design needs to be tested to prove it works.

Requirements
– 3rd+ yr student at a university of applied sciences (HBO) or at an academic university (VWO)
– Experience in CAD modelling and mechanical designs
– Eagerness to learn
– Good English communication skills

Job type
Internship

Period
6 months

Location
Delft, Netherlands
