This edition of Mikroniek aims to honour the memory of Wim van der Hoek with articles about designs in his vein and reflections that build on his ideas. Wim van der Hoek was the first to emphasise the dynamics of mechanisms as a source of positional errors in high-speed production machinery. He developed a simple design tool by means of which the positional error – due to the dynamics cams and the backlash – could be estimated in the drawing office. Click here for a first impression.
