Graduation assignment: Cloud Engineering



Together with Voortman Steel Construction, Voortman Steel Machinery is part of the Voortman Steel Group and is one of the largest players in the international market. With international subsidiaries, the company is a globally recognized and leading supplier to the steel construction and manufacturing industry. Seeing ideas become reality; that sounds so nice, but it really happens at Voortman Steel Machinery. And then there are groundbreaking ideas. We make the most innovative machines and production lines for the steel construction and sheet metal processing industry. For customers all over the world!

But building a machine or production line is one thing, but actually running it; that is at least as important. The Software Development department lays the foundation for this. They ensure that all individual parts are controlled and work together. The daily work consists of designing, developing and testing software. It concerns high-quality software that ensures that manual actions by the end user are kept to a minimum. We move with the times and are therefore constantly looking for even better faster solutions.

Apply? What are you going to do? Where are you working on? We ask We offer Who are your colleagues?


As a graduate you are given the space to learn and develop yourself, both personally and professionally. You are really part of the team and you can expect all the support from your colleagues. You work independently and dare to show initiative. In addition, you get the freedom and you take the responsibility to organize and carry out your research according to how you like it.


Currently, tools administration is built into VACAM and tools model is shared across multiple functional domains. Tools Management is being redesigned to provide better functionalities and enhanced user experience. The Tools Management components have to be built and data migration strategy implemented.

A web application has to be created where tools can be registered. This component will be integrated into the VACAM and replace the current desktop (WinForms/WPF) specific screens and dialogs. A part of the VACAM database responsible for tools registration will be migrated to a separate store. The underlying service has to support appropriate tool claiming, so that a tool can’t be used at the same time by more than one machine. Publishing tool life related events (to be consumed by the Tools Management) is also an important aspect to be implemented (this will ensure tool state consistency).

Your colleagues speaking

Peter Lanting - Software Development

As Software Engineers, we see being implemented in house what we devise. At Voortman we actually do everything ourselves. From developing machinery, building it up to and including installation at the customer’s facility and subsequent service. We work on a tangible end product. We continue to be involved during the production process, we are keen to think collaboratively and share our knowledge whenever necessary.
