Description of the job
Airbus Safran Launchers (Les Mureaux) is looking for an intern for a six-month placement.
Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, has been identified by Airbus Safran Launchers as one of the most promising technologies.
The additive manufacturing resources available Les Mureaux site include a wire placing machine which was installed in 2016.
The principle of this technology, more widely known by the acronym "WAAM", is to lay metal wire in an ongoing way. The wire is melted using a high intensity electric arc and poured in a liquid state.
This process is similar to the standard processes of arc welding such as MIG, TIG or even Plasma but in order to build parts layer by layer.
You will, during your internship, be under the responsibility of the engineer in charge of developing this innovative process.
This internship will be available from 1st February 2017 (subject to a certain degree of flexibility).
