Design Principles for Precision Mechatronics
The precision mechatronics community has a long history of continuous updates on DDP (“Des Duivels Prentenboek”) content by Wim van der Hoek and his ‘heritage keepers’. It is considered relevant to prolong this process with new examples from the field of precision mechatronics, incl. opto-mechanics, electro-mechanics and material science.
In the coming year(s), we write a book and a website containing examples of precision mechatronics elements. DSPE members can contribute by writing clear examples to be freely used. Company and designer can be mentioned. Examples should no be complete systems.
The website with cases will be released soon. For now, the page is protected.
