Cutlery Industry

All my efforts in this area were done in cooperation with my master and Ph.D. student Gabriel Afonso. He was certainly the brightest and one of the most dedicated persons I had the opportunity to guide. We have designed and built several systems together for the Cutlery Industry and planed to do several others… since he suddenly passed away (August 2012), I just didn’t had the courage or the motivation to work in this area again.
