Bachelor/master thesis or student research project

We want to grow and are looking for reinforcement for our team in Bovenden!

With wealth of ideas and passion, our employees develop and build thermal plants according to individual customer requirements. 

As a medium-sized technology company founded in Göttingen with the German locations Bovenden and Böblingen, we offer a wide range of tasks in a dynamic environment.

Topic of the thesis

"Planning, construction and operation of a test facility for the measurement of exhaust gas compositions during powder metal sintering as a function of heating gradient, atmosphere and component geometry"

Your profile

  • student (m/f/d) of materials science, process engineering, mechanical engineering or related fields of study
  • very structured and independent way of working 
  • good knowledge in the fields of measurement technology and materials engineering
  • ideally experience with waste gas analysis and thermal process materials 
  • MS-Office knowledge
  • good English skills
  • good communication and coordination skills

Goal of thesis

In sintering, a pressed component (green body) is sintered to a solid in a sintering furnace. During pressing, among other things, a pressing aid is used to reduce friction. This is thermally removed from the green compact in the first furnace step, the so-called debinding.

The heating gradient, the gas flow around the component and the component geometry are decisive factors in this process. CFD simulations are currently being carried out to better understand this process. To validate the simulation model, measurements of the exhaust gas components escaping from the sintered part as a function of time, temperature, atmosphere and component geometry are required.

In the tendered work, a test facility for heating up green parts with different temperature gradients and different atmospheres including an exhaust gas measurement is to be built and operated.

Structure of the work packages

  • introduction to the subject of powder metal sintering with special emphasis on pressing aids and powder composition
  • familiarization with the topic of exhaust gas measurement
  • planning, construction and operation of a test stand for measuring exhaust gases at different heating gradients, atmospheres and component geometries
  • evaluation of the measured data
  • presentation of the results in a suitable form

If necessary, the task can be adapted for the handling of a student research project.

Further information

  • location: Bovenden
  • start: immediately
  • duration: at least 3 months
