Experience so far.

Let’s starts to tell you that we are open to sharing knowledge therefore we support the “Knowledge Sharing Centre” initiative. What I like the most during this project is combining the different knowledge areas.
We like to have a technical performance model that shows the representation of several gearwheel shapes. Ask us about the technology and we are on board, ask us for design and we quit. Yes we know what we like to see. We can give guidance to a technical intern but when it comes to a design process we cannot get the best out of it.

With the strategy of the Knowledge Sharing Centre you combine expertise by proper collaboration.

Of course we had quite some ideas how our setup might look like, but the concept what was presented was far beyond our expectations.

In practice the combination of simple explanation with complex gears. A setup that can use in many situations. A cool appearance for the young people and technical diversity for an technician. On to the next step. We are looking forward.

Why a Knowledge Sharing Centre?

Things are running rather smoothly in the high tech manufacturing industry. Even so, this is no guarantee for the future. Collaboration based on knowledge sharing will brings us the new future.

The KSC is the connector between companies from the design and manufacturing industry, which bundles knowledge in an accessible way to achieve joint growth and collaborations on a trusted basis.
