Testing the XT/NXT machines
“Being part of the ASML Testing Department means I am providing specialist support to the volume production team and implementing structural changes to the system to improve performance. This includes routinely performing repair and maintenance of the well-known XT/NXT machines, subsystems, and components, as well as calibration, alignment, and qualification of critical and sensitive components. Furthermore, I prepare the machine and subsystems for shipment. When contact with the first line support is requested and unavailable, I automatically become the main contact for the production team.” In September 2013, almost one year ago, Artur Lanczkowski got in contact with the account…Read more...

“I got in contact with TMC through an old colleague who works for TMC. He told me about his positive experiences,” employeneur René Nass says. “I was looking for a new work environment, but in fact, I was really skeptical towards employments agencies. Now, a year and a half later my skepticism has been replaced by enthusiasm! I am really committed to the concept of Employeneurship and experience that employeneurs are at the core of everything we do.” René works as a contract agent at Rijkswaterstaat for the southern part of The Netherlands (locations: Den Bosch and Roermond). “I work…Read more...
FMX314; Fortimedix’ single-site surgery solution
“Within laparoscopic surgery, also known as minimally invasive surgery, removing a gallbladder is usually a very risky surgical procedure as it could lead to serious herniation,” Employeneur Frank Nijsten states. “At Fortimedix Surgical, we developed the first and only 15 millimeter single-site surgery solution, called the FMX314, which consists of triangulating instruments and an access port with four holes in the device to insert the instruments in the abdomen. Using this single-site surgery solution, the number of incisions, the chance of herniation, and abdominal wall trauma will be minimized. Moreover, the FMX314 offers surgeons the ability to comfortably perform single-site…Read more...
TMC: Tijdelijke kennismedewerkers verkorten doorlooptijden projecten
Is het 'inhuren' van externe medewerkers voor Onderzoek, Ontwikkeling en Engineering een goede keuze? Joeri Voets van TMC is duidelijk: "Ja, want het verkort de doorlooptijd van projecten" ENGINEERINGNET.NL - De trend naar een flexibele 'personeelsschil' binnen bedrijven heeft zich al decennia geleden ingezet. Dat beperkte zich in eerste instantie tot laaggeschoolde arbeidskrachten, maar breidde zich later uit naar hoogopgeleiden in andere bedrijfsonderdelen. Zeker gedurende de afgelopen 10 jaar is daar ook Onderzoek & Ontwikkeling & Engineering – R,D&E - bijgekomen, gekenmerkt door een hoog (academisch) opleidingsniveau van de arbeidskrachten. Hoe kijkt een belangrijke marktpartij als TMC Group aan tegen…Read more...
Prototype Sustainable Refrigerator Trailer at the EU-PVSEC

The European PV Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition is the largest solar related conference in Europe with more than 3000 participants from over 70 countries performing around 1600 presentations. TMC in collaboration with THT, VALX, TRS, SCX Solar and HAN studied and developed a refrigerator trailer where the power generation is provided by a battery pack which by itself is charged by the braking energy and solar panels. The prototype has been driving on the road for the past half year. These…Read more...
Finance meets technology: financieringsvormen voor hernieuwbare energietechnologie

Test Foundations Training
Nov 12 2014
The training explains the fundamentals of testing, where the broad field of testing is addressed and a major role for test design techniques. The training is given by a ISTQB certified tester with a strong technical background in the high tech industry. The training increases the test knowledge of the software test community, but more and more is adapted by other disciplines as well. Also for non-testers it gives a good background and basic understanding on testing. Since the key of learning is to bring it into practice, the training includes a mentoring session on the job by the trainer…Read more...
