Your assignment

General description:

We transport a lot of loose printed sheets in our highly productive printers. Ink, moisture and climate conditions can cause sheets to deform. During the verification of our machines, we want to test whether the transport of the sheets is robust enough to transport these deformed sheets. In some phases of our machine development we would like not to put ink on our sheets, so we are looking for a unit that can deform the sheets in a defined way for us. The assignment will consist of developing a unit that can deform the sheets and can be integrate into our machine,. If you are interested, creative and not afraid of a challenge, then this is an ideal assignment..
