Internship Mechanical Engineering - Dynamic analysis of Racking compartments

Since the early days of NEDCON in 1969, we have accumulated a wealth of knowledge and experience with storage systems. From manual warehouse racks and semi-automatic systems, to an integral approach for complex and automated warehouse layouts. And we use this experience to do our very best to exceed your expectations.

If it can be done, consider it done

At NEDCON, we like to get things done. It’s in our blood. If there’s something we’re good at, it’s planning and realisation. Even if the task initially seems impossible. We are always looking for a solution, new ideas or a different approach that opens up new possibilities.

This way of working distinguishes us from the rest. For nearly 50 years. Our secret lies in our commitment. To customers and projects, but also to each other and the company. A lot of colleagues have helped build NEDCON and have worked together for a long time. That creates a kind of family environment, into which new colleagues are welcomed with open arms. And where creativity, innovation, talent and quality can thrive. This way, our special corporate culture radiates into our projects.

In the logistic sector automatized pick and place operations become more and more the standard. Nedcon has provided different customers in the past with several different types of configurations. System integrators have combined automatic systems with the systems of Nedcon. There are combinations of Nedcon systems and robots that have the tendency to vibrate.

Vibrations of the racking systems might course stored products to move out of position. When this position shift occurs the automatic crane might not be able to locate the product at the last known position, resulting in an error that needs to be manually solved. This cause down-time in the warehouse which will result in loss of profit.

In 2017 a model has been developed, to study the design parameters that influence these vibrations. This model was simplistic and gave reasonable results but did not succeeded to correctly predict displacements of adjacent stored products. The next step is to add additional layers of complexity to this model so that it includes more effects and becomes a closer match to reality.

The project will (for example) consists of the following tasks;

  • Investigate the influences that cause vibrations in racking
  • Create an analytical/numerical model that reflects the physical reality
  • Perform tests in the Nedcon test facility to verify the model.
  • Report study

You will be assisted by a support group. The support group consists of representatives of disciplines like Mechanical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Production and the Installation department.
