Intern or thesis student - Numerical Simulation of Cold Forming Process
What's the role?
Numerical simulation plays an important role for innovative fastening products development. The simulation of cold forming processes of fastening elements is a challenging topic. Your role in the project is to simulate the cold forming process and analyze the material flow and tool stresses.
Start date is flexible to the student's availability (ideally from Mar/Apr 2021), duration for at least 6 months.
Who is Hilti?
If you’re new to the industry, you might not have heard of us. We provide leading-edge tools, technologies, software and services for the global construction sector. We have a proud heritage, built over 75 years, and a worldwide reputation for pioneering products and exceptional service.

What does the role involve?
As intern in our department you’ll be part of the project on development of innovative fastening elements.
You’ll work closely with our experts to develop suitable simulation models to be able to simulate the cold forming process of fastening elements and to use them for parameter study with the aim of optimizing the design of fastening elements as well as the required
cold forming tools.
Your key responsibilities will be to give simulation support on development of innovative fastening elements, which includes the simulation model development, the parameter study, and to give suggestions on innovative cold forming tool design.
What do we offer?
Show us what you’re made of and we’ll offer you opportunities to move around the business – to work abroad, experience different job functions and tackle different markets. It’s a great way to find the right match for your ambitions and achieve the exciting career you’re after.
