"Thanks to this cooperation, all users as well as our participating companies have two strong partners at their side with distinctive specialist knowledge and many years of technical know-how," says Dr. Stephan Hasse, Managing Director of Foundry Technologies & Engineering GmbH (FT&E) and editor of the online Foundry Lexicon.
“Foundry technology with all its different facets must be seen and experienced directly. Technical terms become more understandable and easier to understand when explanatory texts and moving images interact directly. From now on, our users and partners will benefit greatly from the interaction of the two portals. They are based on the expertise and many years of experience of the two cooperation partners. The synergetic concept simply has enormous potential for the user ", explains Dr. Sebastian Tewes, Foundry-Skills Editor and Owner.
