Project Assistant Jakob Unger Completes Familiarization Internship at Josef Friedrich Stair

Our new project assistant Jakob Unger completed an internship at long-time Compass Software user Josef Friedrich Treppenbau GmbH in Germany to make himself more familiar with the stair building business.

Jakob was able to get a comprehensive look into the stair building process, during his two-week internship in July. The goal was to accompany one stair from drawing to assembly. This was accomplished with the production of a classic wood staircase with stringers.

Jakob had the opportunity to assist during different stages of production. He was able to gain experience in the milling of standard parts (treads, risers, stringers) as well as special parts (treads with bullnose profile, posts, and balusters) on the CNC machine. Furthermore, he loaded plates onto the machine, position the vacuum cups, and helped with the cleaning and maintenance of the CNC.

After the CNC, the parts were processed further. Small blemishes had to be removed and some drillings had to be placed by hand. The parts were prepared for surface treatment and Jakob was able to assist in the assembly of some of the parts already, for example putting special posts into place. Once, everything fit well, all parts were ready for the final assembly.

Jakob is thrilled about his new knowledge and experiences after completing the internship. The time he spent at Stair Friedrich gave him an excellent opportunity to familiarize himself with the stair building process and the handling of the different materials. The training was friendly and professional. Questions were answered competently, and he had many opportunities to work independently. The collected basic knowledge and the further training at Compass Software will ensure that Jakob will soon have a comprehensive knowledge of the wood building industry. We would like to thank Josef Friedrich Treppenbau GmbH for making this internship possible and we are looking forward to future collaborations.
