“Meet. Create. Share.” – Under this motto, the around 50 members of Schaffenburg e.V., founded in 2014, get together regularly in their clubhouse, “Space”, to work on technical, manual and creative projects. But the club’s engagement is not limited to that – the hands-on Schaffenburg members are also active in the Repair Café in Aschaffenburg and offer a variety of workshops for adults, teenagers and children. As of very recently, the club can now call on 15 new Ersa soldering stations – five i-CON PICO und ten RDS 80. “Schaffenburg e.V. is a genuine maker space for people with a passion for technology, in which creative ideas can be realised, among other things through the use of soldering tools. We are delighted to support this project,” said Hansjürgen Bolg.

 

The Sales Director for Tools, Rework & Inspection Systems at Ersa GmbH travelled especially to Aschaffenburg in October, together with Key Account Manager Katharina Fertig, to hand over the 15 soldering stations. This also gave the Ersa visitors an opportunity for a guided tour through the Schaffenburg premises – which the club just moved into in January 2018 – and of course the i-CON PICO stations were tested right away. The first major stress test for all the stations ensued shortly afterwards with a soldering workshop for children aged seven to eleven, in which clothes pegs with colourful blinking LEDs and batteries were assembled. Ersa wishes the creative minds in Schaffenburg e.V. lots of fun with the soldering stations and a wealth of bright ideas and positive results!

 

Make + Create with Ersa Tools

On September 11, the “Creapolis Makerspace” opened in the director´s villa of the old slaughterhouse in Coburg. After the official part at noon, the premises were open all day long for the numerous visitors. The outdoor area was inviting with live jazz, food trucks and a bar.

Like the Creapolis project, Makerspace wants to promote the transfer of knowledge between the Coburg University of Applied Sciences and the region. As an open workshop, it encourages as large an audience as possible to realise their own ideas, fiddle with them or simply try something out. Introductory workshops are planned as well as events for advanced students and experts in close cooperation with the study courses Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Integrated Product Design. Thanks to extensive equipment, everything from DIY projects to pre-production prototypes can be implemented and tested in a creative environment. There is also a wood workshop, laser cutter, 3D printing, CNC milling, video cutting, sewing machine – and an electronics workshop. With the generous support of Ersa, the company was able to equip it with professional soldering stations and tools that are also suitable for ambitious projects. The solder fume extraction with flexible arms guarantees a healthy climate even for longer work. In addition, Ersa provided six compact soldering stations that can be used for in-house workshops as well as for mobile work. This means that the makerspace also has mobile equipment with which one can go on tour. The Creapolis team would like to thank Ersa for the generous support and the great equipment!
