Maarten Steinbuch on the future of robotics

‘A robot to re-attach your finger to your hand’.   This month, Deloitte calculated that in the Netherlands alone 2 to 3 million jobs could be lost to robots, and even Dutch Vice Prime Minister Asscher warned about job losses due to robots. Maarten Steinbuch (54) is professor of Control Systems Technology at the Technical University in Eindhoven (TU/e). His incredible track record puts him at the top of his field. He and his group at the TU/e are famous for, amongst other things, their work on robotics for healthcare. Not only that, they are currently World Champions in robotic…

‘Finance meets Technology’ – TMC workshop @energievakbeurs

Last Tuesday 7 October, the annual Energievakbeurs took place at the Brabanthallen in ‘s Hertogenbosch. TMC took up the challenge to organize a workshop in the framework of the Solar Event. In “Finance meets Technology” TMC brought together 4 speakers who showed how technological development of renewable energy can be financed on the one hand and how money can be earned from renewable energy on the other hand.   Dorine Putnab-Devilee of ASN Bank explained the position of a bank, and how mainstream projects can be financed. Marc Buiting of 1to3 Capital highlighted the opportunity of crowd funding for developing…

Electric Variable Transmissions: Frank Rentmeester about his project at TNO

Frank Rentmeester works as a hardware design engineer in a large project at TNO Automotive in Helmond. TNO is renowned for innovating with concrete targets. His project, Electric Variable Transmission (EVT), is a good example of TNO’s focus on useful applications EVT technology can be classified as hybrid transmissions. Normal hybrid transmissions are located between the internal combustion engine and the differential gear. They consist of one or more electric motors in combination with other standard transmission components like clutches, gears or planetary gear sets. All these parts can be replaced by the EVT, including the electric motors. Just one…

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…

Prototype Sustainable Refrigerator Trailer at the EU-PVSEC

"On Monday 22 September TMC will present the poster "Prototype Sustainable Refrigerator Trailer" at the EU-PVSEC in Amsterdam. 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…

Workshop 3D Printing, part 2

0
Nov 17 2014
That’s impossible to make! So let’s print it! In the industry 3D printing technology is already becoming a fundamental tool in prototyping. However, due to its great potential and rapid development, it is currently also competing against the conventional production methods in the ‘volume’ side of the business. 3D printing is so promising that it attracted the attention of the consumer market, where the first printers are already available for less than €1000. At some point 3D printers will become cheap enough to break-open the consumer market completely and we can only speculate on what impact this will have on…

Oct 30 2014
Geïnteresseerd in de laatste ontwikkelingen rondom het thema circulaire economie? Kom dan naar ons jaarlijkse evenement ‘InnovatiekrachtNL’, dat zal plaatsvinden op 30 oktober a.s. in het Drijvend Paviljoen te Rotterdam. We grijpen deze keer terug op het toekomstbeeld dat vorig jaar geschetst is door André Kuipers en Eppo Bruins (STW). Zij toonden ons de uitdagingen op het gebied van milieu en grondstoffen die door een groeiende wereldbevolking en welvaartsdeelname met rasse schreden op ons afkomen. We zullen moeten gaan denken en doen in termen van een “circulaire economie”. Dit jaar presenteren we u graag een aantal recente ontwikkelingen en doorbraken van…
