IKOR - Real vs Virtual

Nowadays technology enables us to create complete product developments without the need to manufacture any physical prototypes. By using only virtual (digital) prototypes that can be used for analysis and simulation (FEA, CFD), we can reduce development times and improve and optimise the quality and cost of the products that we develop. Nevertheless, we like […]

“Oh no, not I! I will survive! Oh, as long as I know how to love I know I’ll stay alive! And I’ve got all my life to live. And I’ve got all my love to give. And I’ll survive. I will survive! I will survive! July and just like that it’s here again. Summer […]

IKOR_salud

In a previous post, we were talking about the importance of standardising and normalising the requirements which apply to this sector. Among other things, it involves keeping a technical file which contains all the information pertaining to the product, including a record of the tests that it has passed. In this post, we’re going to […]

IKOR_DMAIC CYCLE

In previous posts, we have provided a brief introduction to the DMAIC cycle as a tool for improving processes. D. Define; M. Measure; A. Analyse; I. Improve and C. Control In this post, we will be talking about the last stage – CONTROL. “Apparently we´ve been able to improve by applying the previous stages, so […]

IKOR_ STAR-UP

There is no doubt that the Start-up phenomenon is seeing a lot of coverage in the Spanish media, logical if we analyse the potential of so many young unemployed and their extensive education. The alternative of self-employment is consolidating itself as a way to channel their eagerness to work, and their fresh ideas attract the […]

IKOR_ Additive Manufacturing

In previous posts we looked at what additive manufacturing is, we wondered if it would be the next industrial revolution and we reviewed the day to day of 3D printing. We pointed out that 3D printing is particularly suited to high-value or small-volume products. Also to produce complex geometries or products that require customisation. Likewise, […]

IKOR_Lean Start_up

The classic way in which a product, service or business is developed within a company that already has a functional core business has a well defined and very familiar sequence: Strategic thinking at management level in which it is decided that this new product, service or business is a potential blue ocean. Detailed market study […]

“You must understand what Culture means to us. Culture is our pride. Culture is our sacrifices. Culture is our noblest symbol of excellence. Culture is a tribute to the democratic philosophy. Culture is our aspiration and our name. Culture is the essence of Greekness…” These words were spoken 30 years ago at the Oxford Union. […]

IKOR_Medical

Yes, I admit it: after a few trips to Shuzou , I have a Rolexx on my wrist and go for a walk in my NAIKE training shoes. And yet I would never take BAIYER painkillers and would not trust a defibrillator hanging on the wall of my gym manufactured by SIEMEMS. There are things […]

IKOR ISO MEDICAL

As we told you in a previous post in IKOR we have been fully involved in the process of ISO 13485 certification. Today we can say that we got it!!! Both IKOR as our design and development center IKOR Technology Centre have been certified with ISO 13485, thus becoming the first Spanish EMS to receive […]

Ikor- Navidad

These last words of 2015 to wish you Merry Christmas and a shining 2016! FELIZ HAPPY 2016!

IKOR_Bluetooth

Bluetooth is a wireless technology created by Ericsson in 1994 that operates on the 2.4GHz ISM band. Initially, Bluetooth was presented as a peer-to-peer wireless alternative to replace cable-based communications. Today, Bluetooth is the most used technology for exchanging data between nearby equipment (PAN, or Personal Area Network: 1m-30m) wirelessly. The “Bluetooth Special Interest Group” […]

IKOR_3DPrinting

Since the beginning of the additive manufacturing boom, we have all heard that NASA has sent a 3D printer into space, that skulls have been reconstructed in patients with severe injuries, and that they are now working with human tissue … But 3D printers are now established in the daily activities of businesses, including Ikor, […]

IKOR Results

You probably already know the story about the student who gave this answer. When he saw his teacher’s angry expression, he explained that he didn’t know whether he had wanted an accurate or fast reply. This quandary is something we face regularly: Should we do things well or finish them quickly? I’m sure I can […]

BoundarySCAN_IKOR

The “Boundary-Scan” testing system, also known as “JTAG” , is a testing technique in electronic systems for integrated circuits or chips (microprocessors, microcontrollers, memories, chipsets,etc.) To do this, they must be compatible with this system in order to be able to verify their electrical interconnects which, due to their encapsulated format, are not physically accessible […]

IKOR normas medioambientales

In the field of electronic assembly there have always been regulations of one sort or another that have affected both the materials and processes that we use for manufacturing. From the classics, such as IEC, UNE, EN, DIN, ISO, IPC, which govern aspects ranging from functionality, robustness and criteria for the acceptability of assemblies to […]

IKOR_SPI_Technology

If we are wondering which process has the biggest room for improvement in the automatic component assembly process (SMT), the answer without a doubt is the screen printing or solder paste application process. It is known that this solder paste printing process produces more defects than any other process within the automatic SMD component assembly […]

IKOR_INDUSTRIA 4.0

The concept of industry 4.0 is now in vogue, as a cursory glance around the internet will tell you. In this period of economic slowdown, every country wants to climb onto the industry 4.0 bandwagon as they see it as a catalyst and something that can spark the recovery of industry. In Germany, the “Industry […]
