Isochronic AG

The Swiss industrial startup company Isochronic AG is developing the next generation of continuous-motion industrial robots (CMR) capable of handling multiple parts simultaneously, thus multiplying the performance of pick & place operations in automated production lines. Many different industries with high-volume application requirements such as food packaging, electronics- and precision assembly as well as intralogistics stand to benefit from customized isochronic robot variants which Isochronic plans to build. We are currently developing first industrial applications of the new robot type which poses many interesting technical complications, including several state-of-the-art mechanical-, electrical and software engineering problems.
To increase the strength of our highly motivated team with over 40 years of experience in industry as well as research/academia, we are offering an internship position for a
Robotics Intern – Automatic Controls Engineering (m/f)
Location: Isochronic Offices, 1026 Denges (VD), Switzerland
Your assignments during an internship and possibly a subsequent master’s thesis with us:
·       You contribute to the development of the world’s first parallel-part-transfer industrial robot through engaging in the following activities:
o  Engineering and optimization of the Isochronic robot’s control system based on the EtherCAT field bus protocol.
o  Designing, implementing, and testing of control algorithms.
o  Simulating new ideas and subsequent analysis and evaluation of different motion strategies involving the robot’s numerous control axes/servo motors.
o  Realizing on-system testing to show results on real-world systems.
o  Report and present experimental results and research findings, both verbally and in writing.
o  Collaborate with our team to advance the prototype development-, assembly and system testing.
