We are especially looking for topics within the following areas:
Automatization
Quality control
Use of real time data in RM process
Artificial Intelligence in RM products?
We will also arrange the  Speaker's Corner for presenting news.

Swell exercisig Jester 1200x797       The man who brought the sit-on-top kayak to market has started a new brand: Swell Watercraft. The result is the among the best-designed sit-on-top kayaks on the market. The first thing I noticed about the Scupper 14 was the array of points of organization. Hatches, bungees, fishing rod holders, and gear tracks abound. The second thing I noticed is that the boat is heavy. As a former competitive paddler, hull speed triumphs over all else for me. That means lightweight composite layups. Every time I’m around a rotomolded plastic boat, I’m shocked by its weight. Probably more so with the extremely well-outfitted Scupper 14.
