Maxime LEFEBVRE Mechatronic engineer - Certified LabVIEW Developer

Welcome !

My name is Maxime LEFEBVRE and I am a French mechatronic engineer based in Paris, France. I graduated in 2015 with an engineering degree from the University of Technology of Belfort-Montbéliard and I specialised in mechatronic design. As part of my job I chose to focus on the test and control systems. I am currently working as an Application Engineer at National Instruments. As a Certified LabVIEW Developer I am happy to bring my expertise through customer education or technical support.

I am always enthusiastic about discovering new areas, for example sales or marketing. Therefore I am open to any opportunity that would enable me to develop my abilities even more and to diversify my fields of expertise.

Have a pleasant visit on my website and fell free to click on any link or to contact me for more information.

Junior laboratory engineer (intern)

03/15 > 08/15 - Groupe Atlantic/Thermor, Saint-Jean-de-la-Ruelle (FR)

Design a new testbench for the homologation of electric heaters. Define laboratory's technical needs to propose a solution that would comply with the European norm. The hardware includes the selection of linear axes, brushless motors, sensors and data acquisition cards. The software was developed on LabVIEW (approx. 70 VI) to acquire the data and control the motors, thus fulfilling the requirements specified by the technicians. Validation and homologation of the new testbench by the evaluation of different test cases.

Laboratory engineer assistant (intern)

09/13 > 02/14 - C&K Components, Dole (FR)

Improvement of small metallic domes life tests. Characterisation of the mechanical properties of the domes via multiple tests : tensile tests, µhardness Vickers, etc. Proposition of pre-concepts for a crack detection system that would allow to determine domes life cycle with more precision. Determination of the best concept and development to prove its efficiency through life tests on different domes batches. Statistic analysis on MINITAB.

Automation technician (intern)

04/12 > 07/12 - Alstom Transport, Saint-Ouen (FR)

Improvement of trains automatic commands. Proposition of modifications for the closed loop PI correction and implementation of a new PI² correction. This correction deeply impacts travel times between stations and users' comfort. Modification of the digital command sent to the train to reduce the system response time. Validation of the command through multiple disruption types : ramp, step... Validation of the whole modified MATLAB model within robustness test on different cases (e.g. Lausanne metro).
