Introduce yourself

I am Jelle Jelsma and come from Sint Nicolaasga. I am a student of HBO mechanical engineering at the NHL Hogeschool in Leeuwarden. At the moment I am graduating from the rigging designer. The Graduation project I do in the Projects department is about standardizing and developing lifting yokes.

The assignment consists of two parts, a standardization part and a development part. When standardizing I am trying to set up a series of lifting yokes that are sold a lot. The reason for the standardization is that cheaper a lifting beam can be offered to the customer. With the development Part I am trying to invent a way to turn large crane beams around their shaft, this must be done so that the jib can be properly welded during the welding process.

For me, the bag is a nice and fun company to close my school period. The atmosphere within the company is pleasant and everyone is willing to help me with my assignment and that gives a good feeling.

There is always something moving at Bijlsma
