The world’s leading trade fair for electronics development and production hosts 1.560 exhibitors from 43 countries, spread out over 88.000 m2 exhibition space. The PCB & EMS Marketplace, located in hall B3, is a must-visit for everyone who is interested in anything related to PCB or solutions for electronics manufacturing services (EMS). In short, plenty of reason to visit München!
During the fair, we would like to welcome you to our booth, located in the PCB hall B3 #485.
We would be delighted to show you our spare parts website www.vitechparts.com, and tell you all about our 300.000 parts in stock. Did you know we offer new, used ánd refurbished parts, including obsolete OEM parts?
Additionally, we’d be happy to talk to you a
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
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 maximum effi
