A USB hub is a device that expands a single Universal Serial Bus (USB) port into several in order to have more ports available to connect devices to a host system. USB hubs are often built into equipment such as computer cases, monitors, keyboards or any other similar device. If such a device has many USB ports it usually stems from one or two internal USB hubs because in other case each port would need its own independent USB circuitry.… Read More »TECOS DESIGNS NEW HOUSING FOR USB HUB’s

In the last weeks and months, the activities of the partnership have focused on the elaboration of the learning content for the SAMANTHA training course. Highly informative texts were created for the AM-oriented modules as well as for the transversal learning content. In the future training course, those text documents can be used as a downloadable resource for supporting the learning process. But developments will not stop at that level. At the moment we are in the middle of enriching… Read More »The Training Course is Taking Shape!
The concept of T-shaped skills based on the insights of IO1 was placed in the centre of our vision as those abilities of the workforce in the Toolmaking and Habitat sectors are strongly needed. The vertical bar on the T represents the depth of related skills and expertise in a single field, whereas the horizontal bar is the ability to collaborate across disciplines with experts in other areas and to apply knowledge in areas of expertise other than one’s own.… Read More »State of Art IO2

These studies refer to the world of design and industrial engineering, in which through continuous research, experts in these fields try to give green solutions to pollute our planet less. In the context of addivie manufacturing, it is necessary to highlight the… Read More »Circular Economy and Additive manufacturing
In Germany, the first 3D-printed residential house is currently being built in the North Rhine-Westphalian town of Beckum. Its construction is being funded with €200,000 and its completion is planned for March 2021. The project uses a new type of portal printer, the BOD2, which can be operated by just two people with software assistance. A print head moves on three axes on a permanently installed metal frame and is monitored by a camera. A special nozzle precisely applies a… Read More »A 3D printed house!
