"Suddenly the electricity went out all over AWL."

Hardware engineer AWL

The first time that I walked into AWL, tests with a couple of robots were just being conducted. I saw the sparks from the welding and how much electricity and power were involved and I was immediately impressed. I just finished my two-year traineeship at AWL and recently started as a junior hardware engineer. During my traineeship I have been able to work in several departments. What I really enjoyed was hardware engineering. The high power levels involved in welding make the hardware engineering more challenging, because you have to make more calculations and really put your brains to work. What I think is a real benefit here is that you actually see the final product on the shop floor. You also learn a lot from that, because you still try to see how you can do it better next time. When I was only briefly here, we once conducted a test on a spot welder that we had built for a customer. We already knew before the tests that the power would be very high. Step by step we increased the power, until suddenly the electricity went out all over AWL! There were a lot of people who were busy reinstating everything. We’re talking about 1500 amps here. If you consider that a house has 16 amps on one group, then you can imagine how much power that must have been.
