Technieksucces was established to increase awareness of technology among young people. Technieksucces focuses on primary schools on Goeree-Overflakkee. The technique lessons are given in groups 3 to 8. A learning line is used in which similar assignments are repeated in the various groups. These lessons differ in difficulty and degree of independent investigation.

Lego Mindstorms is used to teach the pupils about programming. First, children build a robot, after which it has to carry out all kinds of missions. The last mission is to programme the robot in such a way that it can follow a specific route. A brand new Lego Mindstorms set has been available since October. With this set, pupils can build five different models of robots. The creations can be controlled with the Mindstorm Robot Inventor app. With the app, children can learn to code and complete challenges.

Technieksucces and tbp electronics regularly work together. A number of tbp employees have given guest lectures on technology. To support Technieksucces, tbp electronics recently offered the new Lego Mindstorms robot to Technieksucces. We wish participating students lots of success and fun with this set.

Sirius Medical, a MedTech startup, announced that it has received CE mark approval for Sirius Pintuition. With its debut product, Sirius provides an affordable and easy-to-use alternative to traditional surgical localization systems that rely on anchor wires or radioactive seeds. Sirius aims to revolutionize the way tumors are localized during surgery.

The certification, which indicates conformity with the European health and safety standards, paves the way for Sirius’ commercial launch in September 2020. The first Sirius Pintuition systems are currently in production and will be implemented in hospitals in the Netherlands, the UK, and several other European countries later this year. The USA will follow in 2021.

“We are pleased to have achieved this important milestone with the help and input of many physicians and engineers,” said Hubert Martens, CEO of Sirius Medical. “We are very excited to make our costefficient localization system for soft tissue tumors available to hospitals in Europe. This is great news for surgeons and radiologists as our system provides them with more freedom to apply their skills and deliver the best possible outcome for patients.”

Tumor localization
With the rapid improvement of breast cancer diagnostics over the past decades, surgeons are facing increasingly challenging procedures as they must localize ever smaller and earlier-stage tumors. Until now, surgeons have been using metal anchor wires or radioactive seeds to localize tumors and soft tissue.

“These methods are far from ideal,” said Sirius CEO Martens. “Wire localization is not pleasant for patients and poses logistical challenges because of the required presence of a radiologist on the day of surgery. And many hospitals refrain from using radioactive seeds because of the related safety protocols and their impact on efficiency.”

Sirius provides surgical oncologists with a highly precise, easy-to-use, and affordable solution that contributes to an improved hospital workflow. The Sirius Pintuition seed can be placed up to 180 days before the surgery to mark a target within soft tissue*. During surgery, the Sirius Pintuition Probe provides highly accurate, real-time feedback and directional guidance to the marked tissue. The probe is reusable and compatible with metal instruments that are commonly used during surgery.

About Sirius Medical
With its roots in the Netherlands Cancer Institute, Sirius Medical was born to make things better. The Sirius Pintuition system was developed by and for surgeons addressing a clear clinical need with a solution that simply makes sense. Our mission is to improve health for cancer patients by delivering unsurpassed, yet affordable solutions that enable precise and efficient surgical removal of tumors. Please visit www.sirius-medical.com.

*Please refer to the product instructions for use.

For more information please contact: Jan Willem Beijer, Marketing and Sales jan.willem.beijer@sirius-medical.com

To realize this beautiful Pintuition product, Sirius Medical Systems, 3T and tbp electronics have collaborated intensively and very well. This project fits perfectly with 3T and tbp electronics. Many facets occur in this apparently small product. It is a mix of mechanical parts, cable and electronics. And the potting is also a meticulous activity. tbp electronics has worked closely with the designers from the very beginning. The necessary improvements have been made to make the medical product Pintuition optimally manufacturable.

tbp electronics in de versnelling voor beademingsapparatuur

Sinds de Corona-uitbraak in Nederland levert tbp electronics in versneld tempo cruciale onderdelen aan opdrachtgevers in de medische sector. Dit geldt onder meer voor de beademingsmodules van DEMCON macawi respiratory systems voor ziekenhuizen.

Deze opdrachtgever kent momenteel een tienvoudige orderintake voor de levensreddende beademingsapparatuur die zij maken. DEMCON en tbp electronics werken al vele jaren samen, waarbij tbp de productie en levering van printed circuit board assemblies (pcba’s) voor haar rekening neemt. De verwachting is dat nieuwe aanvragen voor deze specifieke pcba’s volgen gezien de enorme vraag naar beademingsapparatuur.

supply chain management
Van groot belang is de levering van de benodigde kwaliteitscomponenten, tbp electronics vertrouwt daarbij op haar toeleveranciers en hun tijdelijke leveringen. Op die manier kunnen ook zij bijdragen aan het leveren van grote aantallen medische apparatuur – zoals de benoemde beademingsmodules - waaraan de ziekenhuizen nu zo dringend behoefte hebben.

bijdrage
Op deze wijze probeert tbp electronics de mensen in de zorg en verpleging te ondersteunen in hun missie om levens van Corona-patiënten te redden.

nieuwe productielijn operationeel

Onze nieuwe moderne productielijn draait! Deze derde opstelling op onze hoofdlocatie in Dirksland hebben wij in zeer korte tijd weten op te bouwen. Door ook onze testvoorzieningen en de voorraad componenten uit te breiden en circa twintig nieuwe medewerkers aan te nemen, bieden wij de huidige marktsituatie het hoofd. Dit ondanks de grotere vraag naar printed circuit board assemblies (pcba’s).

De twee bestaande lijnen voor proto’s en kleinere series zijn verplaatst naar onze dependance op hetzelfde bedrijventerrein. Zo hebben we ruimte gemaakt voor onze nieuwe lijn. Alle geplaatste machines zijn van het nieuwste type. Eén van de voordelen is dat we de modernste solder paste dispenser hebben. Dankzij de nieuwe 3D AOI (Automatic Optical Inspection) met nauwkeuriger camera’s kunnen we nu ook de kleinste componenten beter inspecteren! Daarbij hebben de pick-and-placemachines een hogere plaatsingssnelheid. Al het equipment in de lijn is voorzien van het nieuwe communicatieprotocol “Hermes”, geschikt voor horizontale communicatie.

Lees hier ook het persbericht van 13 september jl.

dank aan onze partners
Dankzij de grote inzet van onze medewerkers en onze equipment-leveranciers Mycronic, Partnertec, Nutek en W&S Benelux konden we onze nieuwe productielijn in slechts enkele weken neerzetten en in bedrijf nemen. De bestaande lijnen bleven tijdens alle werkzaamheden gewoon functioneren. Op het hele machinepark werken we met twee shiften. Vanwege de uitbreiding hebben we extra smart operators aangenomen.

meer testcapaciteit
Met Design for Testing maximaliseren wij de testtoegankelijkheid en testdekking van het ontwerp. De beste strategie is afhankelijk van de vereiste leveringskwaliteit, de complexiteit van het ontwerp en de gewenste investeringen in testoplossingen. De meest effectieve en efficiënte optie is de Extended Boundary Scan Testoplossing (EBST) die we zelf hebben ontwikkeld voor het automatisch opsporen van mogelijke gebreken op een pcba.

Om de EBST-capaciteit uit te breiden, hebben we drie extra basisstations geplaatst. In totaal staan er nu acht, een aanzienlijke uitbreiding dus. Ook is een flying probe-tester aan onze productielijnen toegevoegd. In totaal zijn er nu vier operationeel. De toegenomen testcapaciteit draagt bij aan een efficiëntere productie.

grotere voorraad
De voorraad componenten is bijna verdubbeld. Een groter aantal inkoop- en magazijn-medewerkers heeft mede voor deze opschaling gezorgd. De maatregel is noodzakelijk gezien de wereldwijde schaarste aan elektronica-onderdelen. De verwachting is dat die nog lange tijd zal duren.

early supplier involvement
Met early supplier involvement helpen wij opdrachtgevers hun pcba-ontwerp te perfectioneren, de beste componenten te selecteren en voor de beste teststrategie te kiezen. Dit doen wij met onze specialisten op het gebied van Design for Manufacturing (DfM) en Design for Testing (DfT). Met Design for Logistics (DfL) zorgen wij voor maximale leveringsflexibiliteit. Met Design for Cost (DfC) kunnen opdrachtgevers vertrouwen op the best value of ownership. Samen heten deze stappen Design for eXcellence (DfX).

leveringsbetrouwbaarheid
Onze early supplier involvement en onze zelf ontwikkelde EBST hebben mede geleid tot de toegenomen vraag. Dit geldt met name voor de medische sector, defensie en lucht- en ruimtevaart. Natuurlijk hebben we ook voor deze branches alle benodigde certificaten in huis.

Dankzij alle maatregelen blijven wij met de hoogste kwaliteit, beste service en maximale leveringsbetrouwbaarheid aan de toegenomen vraag naar pcba’s voldoen.
