Facilitated by local IET member, Gianni Cessel, a group of engineers recently visited the Hewlett Packard site in Sant Cugat, Barcelona.
The tour began with a brief introduction to the site, moving on to see the demonstration centre where most of the large format printers are housed. Gianni and his colleague, Andrew Frost, gave an insight into the intended market for the printers, explaining the technology and engineering applications behind them. Later, the group learnt more about the site activities and the technology in general, and the evening ended with an opportunity to network with fellow engineers, where discussions ranged from future activities to professional registration for engineers. All attendees thoroughly enjoyed the visit and the group are now focusing on potential events for the future.
