Technology evenings

At the last technology evening, Marita van den Bergh from Proconics spoke about “An introduction to SIL and common misconceptions”. As always, at these meetings, bring your technical concerns, bring colleagues and friends, and come for a cocktail of friendships, business alliances and like-minded people united by the desire to be the best in the world of automation, instrumentation, measurement and control. Visitors are always welcome.

Training days

Thank you to everyone who attended our two days of training and to the following companies who made it happen: E+H, Rascals, DesSoft, Aerosud, Ai2SA and KPMG. On that note, also a special thank you to NLA for hosting us.

Golf day

The branch once again welcomed its national patrons and other guests at the annual golf day on 15 August, hosted this year at the Centurion Country Club. Teams included those from Afrilek, ATTS, Barnard Inc, ifm electronic, Iritron, Kagano, Levivi, Loadtech, Pepperl+Fuchs, Phoenix Contact, Proconics, Rodecon, Shorrock Automation, Siemens, Thenga Holding and Vega. The gold sponsor for the event was Proconics who’s one team also came second in terms of scoring. Loadtech was third overall, while first place went to ATTS. The committee is appreciative of the companies who supported the event and, from the feedback received, it sounds like participants enjoyed the event and had fun.
