Geleen, 1 February 2019 - Reducing our carbon footprint starts with the energy we use. As announced before, we have switched to green energy. In the previous blog, you can read all about solar panels. But what if the solar panels do not generate enough energy to power our workshop and offices?
Our solar energy is supplemented with wind energy by the Zeebrugge windmill park to guarantee 100% green energy. But how is wind turned into energy?
A wind turbine has three blades, which are set in motion by the wind. As they rotate, the movement is turned into electricity by a generator in the nacelle. Just like when you ride your bike; the rotation is turned into energy by the dyn
Geleen, 18 January 2019 - How convenient would it be to use sunlight to heat our buildings? Or to power our lights? Maybe even power our computers and the PCB machines in our workshop?
Well, that is exactly what we do! With our new solar panels, we generate our own energy to power our offices, workshop and storage. Sunshine literally flows through our business!
Solar energy is one of the fastest growing technologies. Worldwide, more businesses and houses line their roofs with solar panels to generate their own (technically free) power. Besides the lower energy costs, the environmental impact arouses a lot of interest as solar panels reduce their environmental footprint drastically.
On the contrary to what is often thought, it's not a new technology! The first solar cell was developed in the 19th century, with an efficiency of 1%. Currently, most solar panels have a efficiency of 15-20
Solar energy and its panels are sustainable and soundless. The energy that it generates is immediately used to power our offices, workshop and storage. And if more power is generated than we need, it’ll be saved for those days the sun won’t show its face or transferred into the grid at the disposal of others. A solar panel has a lifespan of 30 to 40 years and barely needs maintenance. The maximu
Geleen 3 September 2018 – By now most of you know what printed circuit boards are, how they look and what they are used for. But there are still many things you probably didn’t know. Therefore, here are some fun and cool facts about printed circuit boards.
1. Why are printed circuit boards green?
As you probably would have noticed almost every pcb has that distinctive green collor. But why? Why green and not blue, or red? Well the green that you see is the colour of the soldermask showing through the upper glass layer.
But is there a specific reason printed circuit boards are green? The short answer is no. There isn’t a specific reason why pcb’s are green. One theory states, that the green has to do with the standard used by the American military, and use of it spread from there. While another theory suggests that green could have been the colour of the original solder mask resin, use
Geleen 20 July 2018 – In the blog with a new direction comes a new facility we spoke about our new premises. This new premises does not only offer place for new offices but for a completely new fully equipped workshop as well.
What is new.
The new location provides our mechanics with a more spacious and well equipped workshop. With more room to manoeuvre and test machines the work environment is improved. Furthermore, the efficiency is changed for the better as all the materials used for refurbishment are better structured and can be located more easily. With this more spacious workshop our employees are capable of setting up industrial machine lines up to 20 meters in length. The same building provides the employees with new facilities like restrooms, a new canteen and a new dressing room with lockers

Geleen, 9 November 2017 - Due to technical innovation, the printed circuit board is being rediscovered. People all over the world try to redevelop the classic circuit board. And with a rise of small devices like mobile phones the demand for small circuit boards rise’s. This has led to numerous solutions.
In big devices like computers the circuit board is rigged, when the device is compact like a small camera or a mobile phone the circuit board must be flexible. It needs to fold to fit inside. This is where the flexible circuit boards comes in.
Flexible circuit boards are so thin employable their nickname is origami circuitry. At the core of the board is
