Daniel Meurer studies electrical engineering with field automating and drive engineering at the FH Aachen. For the realization of his practice project and the following bachelor thesis he chooses the company Quality Automation. A subject was quickly found: „Resistant Auto-ID system for product tracking“. By using that system different kinds of material media of an existing plant should be marked. The marks should contain the identification numbers of the material media and should serve for the classification of the process data.

The workpiece holders are subject to difficult operating conditions like high temperatures, acids and lacquering. The job was to develop a marking system that resists such conditions. The realization should be performed exemplarily from the taking of the code to the evaluation in an SPS.. Following the colloquium taking place in the room for training course at QA the examining professor Ulrich Hoffmann (FH-Aachen) and the co-examiner Friedhelm Steffens (QA) quickly find out that the performance should be evaluated with the top grade very good (1,0). The company Quality Automation compliments Mr. Meurer on the passed exam and looks forward to a possible cooperation in case of a master thesis.
