Mechaniel Engineering Intern

Salary Unpaid

Flowplan is offering an IoT solution for remote water management, specifically for Industrial kitchen appliances and coffee machines.

In order to measure consumption, we are currently using an off the shelf flowmeter. In order to improve the solution, we want to develop our own flowmeter, with several new implementations. In order to do this, we need a skilled mechanical engineering student for developing and testing our new flowmeter. You will test competing products, 3d-model, 3d-print, test and document.

The existing solution comes with an off-the-shelf flowmeter. In order to improve the product, we want to develop our own flowmeter with added functionality.


Your work

You will help develop our own water turbine flowmeter. The existing flowmeter consists of a plastic housing with an internal impeller that generates pulses as water flows.

You will start by testing different existing flowmeters, talk to our customers about improvements and extra features, e.g. added sensors.

After researching, you will conceptualize the new flowmeter, CAD-model it, 3d print it and make improvements until we reach a design that makes sense.

Your work will include:

  • User testing

  • Mechanics

  • Fluid dynamics

  • Embedded electronics

  • Product testing

  • Conceptualization

  • CAD-modelling

  • Rapid prototyping

  • Testing

  • Product specification

  • DFM

  • Mold design (in collaboration with external companies)

Your background

You are an engineering student from e.g. Mechanical, Design & Innovation, Process and Innovation, Integrated Design or similar.

You are experienced with CAD, design for manufacturing and rapid prototyping.


The internship is intended for ~4-5 months, but if you have something else in mind, let us know!

Working at

Flowplan is changing maintenance in the HoReCa and Cffice industry. We have all tried it, Monday morning and the coffee machine is broken once again. It sucks for you, but it sucks even more for the service provider who has an all-inclusive service agreement. Every time it breaks, they need to hurry out and repair it, free of charge, which means technicians spend half their day driving, and the service departments lose money. Instead of repairing, we want to change maintenance and do it predictive instead. If maintenance is done correctly, the majority of break-downs could be avoided, you would have your coffee and the service providers would actually make a profit on the service business. We have developed a complete IoT solution that collects all consumption data on everything from ice machines to steam ovens to coffee machines, and we use AI to predict and plan when the service providers should maintain the machines. We are a start-up, but we are already established on the market, and companies are becoming more and more aware we exist. Next step is scaling.
