One of a kind
Goss Contiweb specializes in the development, production, sales and service of splicers and dryers for web offset presses. To 25-year-old René van Wijlick, the company is one of a kind: "I work with very interesting machines and techniques," he states. "It is my job to make sure that these machines are properly connected to the press and that they function in good order. Still a trainee service engineer, I travel with experienced colleagues. They teach me a lot when we are at a customer’s site.” For René, the main reason to enter the ranks and files of TMC Field Services…Read more...
The TMC's Orange Crunchers rounded another milestone. For the first time their no-named robot was equipped with a dual gripper. This gripper allows them to actually pick and cut an orange, cruch the two halves, and serve a glass freshly squeeze juice. The video gives evidence of this - simple but complex - achievement. It is still work in progress and it needs fine-tuning but for now the robot does what is has to do: finds and cuts oranges and produces juice. The team is quickly moving on to the next milestones fore the HTS fair on 7th and 8th…Read more...

PIZZA SESSION – RASPBERRY PI
Jan 1 1970
A Raspberry Pi is a small but full featured, €35,00 computer that you can use as a home entertainment- and as a home automation-system.

I also have plans to replace my thermostat, perhaps I’ll add a nice touchscreen with which I can also control the audio system. In this pizza-session I’ll discuss possibilities and fun projects.…Read more...
