The Thursday Gevulde-Koek, a very tasty tradition

As a family-owned company, we like traditions. For example, the Thursday Gevulde-Koek tradition we have kept up since we were founded in 1985! A rough estimate brings that to an astounding 35.100 cookies! We asked our colleague Gerco van Diemen how he got involved.

“Our company is in the middle of the division between the metropolitan area around Leiden in the West and the protected Green-Heart region in the East. Some of my colleagues were born and raised in that beautiful area, which is, for example, famous for its Gouda cheese and stroopwafels. I’m from a small town called Zevenhoven, and my former neighbour, Pieter Koedam, got me my job at Comtest. He has been working here until his retirement in 2017. His daughter worked at the bakery in our town that makes excellent cakes and cookies, and Pieter trusted me with the task of bringing them to the office every Thursday after his retirement. No problem!”

We advise our clients to visit us on Thursdays from now on if they want to be part of this delicious tradition.

Fun fact: the man in the photo on the box has been involved since the beginning of this tasty tradition.

International pioneering and stirrer design

In the world of stirrer designs for reverberation chambers is a lot going on. In the photo, our friends from Rohde & Schwarz Singapore and Hyundai Motor Company (현대자동차) are visiting our company due to their interest in RVC stirrers. They get an introduction to our new development of sinuous stirrers, production facilities, and the reverberation chamber we made for the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven (in the photo).

Renovation and upgrades of EMC and Antenna test chambers

In this article, Senior Technical Consultant Uliana Trucchi explains what can be wrong with outdated test chambers from the 1990s or earlier. Do they still meet the current technical specifications, the latest editions of EMC test standards, and modern health and safety requirements?

Our services include maintenance and validated testing. We recommend that both are executed by authorized personnel only. Our expert teams can perform preventive maintenance on RF-shielded doors, mode-stirrer systems, and positioning equipment such as turntables. We also offer validation services to see if your EMC test chamber or RF-shielded room still functions within its intended limits and avoiding unexpected down-time or product recalls at the same time.

A shielded room can perform conducted emission and immunity EMC measurements, eliminating harmful external influences, leading to more accurate and consistent test results. Being a Faraday cage, a shielded room will not only improve test results but will also form an excellent aid in protecting information and essential hardware. Comtest can assist governments, the military, financial institutions, and large corporations in protecting what matters most in critical situations. We offer the highest quality, sensitivity, and security before, during and after working with you.
