PLC for international projects
The Netherlands, Germany, Hungary and Japan: four countries with quit different cultures and habits of their residents, which reflect in their ways of working in technology. Something programmable logic controller (PLC) engineer Lefranc Loupias experiences every day. Since July 2014 Lefranc is working on several international projects at CSi Packaging Industries (an independent division of CSi) that fully focuses on innovative solutions for the packaging industry. Besides his work at the CSi Packaging office, Lefranc is traveling a lot for CSi to install and test packaging machines and to train operators. A challenging job that leads to interesting and high…Read more...
Co-simulation in high-tech Engineering
In today’s high-tech engineering multi-disciplinary systems are developed, consisting of sub-systems and components that need to work flawless together. The working of these sub-systems and components needs to be tested and this cannot be realized by using just one simulation tool. Here co-simulation offers us the right solution. Co-simulation is a simulation method that allows individual sub-systems and components to exchange information in a co-operating manner and by using several simultaneous ongoing simulation tools the working of the multi-disciplinary system is simulated and tested. By using co-simulation, we get a realistic and reliable outcome of how the multi-disciplinary systems will…Read more...
Tellisys: More Loading Volume
Especially aiming at more efficiency in intermodal container transport, TelliSys presents a prototype of a trailer-supporter combination with an ultra-low position of the fifth wheel that leads to 20% more loading volume. This enables the intermodal container transport business to cut down on fuel expenses and CO2 emission per ton/kilometer significantly. TelliSys is a cooperation of IMA of RWTH University of Aken, the European Intermodal Association, DAF, GEFCO, Goodyear, WECON and WESOB. TelliSys’ target is to realize the transport of containers of an inner height of 3 meters. In these containers, 3 so-called ‘meter-tanks’ can be piled, providing loading volumes…Read more...
Joeri Voets: “Foster fundamental research”
“Foster fundamental research”, the title of an interview in Technisch Weekblad in which Joeri Voets (TMC) discusses the role of fundamental research in attracting new science students. He furthermore argues that achievements by researchers and engineers in general should become more visible and valued.

Guustaaf Savenije CTO at VDL-ETG
For Guustaaf Savenije CTO it is absolutely clear: "Innovations in the high-tech industry result from in-depth cooperation." To him the application of a systems’ approach is key to create new types of customer value. It is well known that all of the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) try to take more responsibility for their customers and create additional value. This raises issues like the control over the total cost of ownership and the management the life cycle of their products. In Savenije's view this inflicts the delegation of more functionality from the OEM to their suppliers. "This delegation" he states, "can…Read more...
