Kevin Johnson of ILF Visits DMC for the Week
During this past week, DMC had the opportunity to work with Kevin Johnson of ILF Technologies at the DMC office. ILF, located in Romeoville, IL, produces web finishing products for the printing and converting industries.
The machine we are currently working on is a new Sheeter which runs on Siemens' SIMOTION platform. Kevin is intimately familiar with the functionality of the existing Sheeters and he has solid knowledge of the existing code base.
In order to be most efficient and provide the most cost-effective solution for ILF, Kevin and I worked side by side to add the required new features and improve the organization, reusability, stability, troubleshooting features, and ultimately the performance of their existing Sheeter code.
Ken Brey (DMC) also joined us for a day and we had a great time putting our old trigonometry and geometry skills to use to come up with a system of equations for the velocity of a scissor lift. Some of us even took up Frank on his dare to eat chocolate-covered grasshoppers It was exciting for us to give Kevin an inside look at the daily activities at the DMC office.
The week was a success and we look forward to continuing our relationship with ILF!
