Hey there, Justin and I attempted to figure out the spell check on this blog page and as you can all see we had some issues....We need some classes!  Bye for now, Pam and Justin

Note from Coach Harald: Not sure there's a spell checker built into the blog, however, you've a few options here: (1) you can write the text with your Microsoft Word or so, and then copy+paste into the blog or (2) You can always go back and change what you have written. Just click on the little square symbol on the left side of the title and then edit your text. I'll be happy to show you at our team meeting tomorrow....

Team Igutech visits Aesculap Spine

Aesculap-logo[Sydney N] On Friday May 28, 2010, Coach Harald took Team Igutech to Aesculap Spine in Breiningsville, PA. Our hosts: Mr Christian Gabriel (Director Marketing Orthopedics), Mr. John Love (VP of R&D at Aesculap) presented the history of Aesculap and introduced us to the staff. We learned how high-tech surgical knee, hip, and spine implants are made. During their presentation, we had the best cookies, fruit, popcorn, and drinks.

Our hosts lead us on a tour through the Aesculap building. On our first stop, we got to see a 3D design demonstration of a tadpole. They showed us how we could change the shape, length, and width of the tadpole using the Catia Software. Then we went to the test lab. At the test lab, they test the strength and durability of their spine implants. Their robot works 24 hours for six weeks and runs 5 million cycles.


Then we visited the machine shop. The first two robots we saw were the four and five axis milling machines that shape soft metal parts for their products. Then we saw the EDM machine that cuts soft and hard metal with hair fine wire. We got to put our hands in the gloves that go inside the sand blasting box. We met a really cool laser welding technician who sat in a purple chair showed us how he uses the equipment. Jackie put on his welding helmet! At the quality control lab, we saw how they project an image (magnified by 60, 100, and 200) to check the final product against the blueprint.

They explained the types of metals and plastics used then we were lucky enough to touch the products. They felt so smooth that you might think it was real cartilage. We celebrated the end of our trip with the Aesculap Skeleton!

Thanks to Aesculap and Coach Harald, it was the coolest trip ever. I was really happy we got to interact with the staff and products!
