On the Thursday of week 7, we welcomed Eva and Tim from Demcon to come to tell us about their company during lunch. Demcon is a company active in many different sectors. Among those is the High-Tech mechatronics sector. Starting with some general information about Demcon, Eva quickly grabbed our attention by having an office in Delft! Next Tim prepared a presentation about one of the projects he has been involved with. This was a project about vacuum, something not typically thought in depth a subject that is very relevant in the high-tech industry but something that does not receive a lot of attention during our master’s program. After learning about the basics and the challenges of engineering with and in a vacuum Tim described the project. Afterward, we could see and play with various parts from the project they had brought before we were all kicked out of the lecture hall by the next lecture.
