THE R.M. HOFFMAN DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT PROCESS FOR THE MOTION CONTROL INDUSTRY WHITE PAPER
Culminating a year of blogging, R.M. Hoffman has assembled a guide to the company's value-added design and development process. The guide unites six discrete steps or phases into an illustrated discourse to assist new customers seeking custom or semi custom motion solutions to difficult engineering problems.
The guide's six sections cover discovery; design; adaptation; prototype creation; validation; and production of the motion control hardware. Spanning 11 pages with color illustrations and infographics, R.M. Hoffman Company’s Value-Added Design and Development Process for the Motion Control Industry is being distributed free as a PDF document.
Tom Hoffman, CEO and President, said "With experience spanning several decades, we've refined our approach to custom and semi-custom motion solutions. Our well-lubricated process is fully explored in this guide, which encourages new customers to bring us their tough motion problems. We are good at solving them and this guide shows how we work. The examples are brief mini case studies of keen interest."

SJSU’s Tammy Nguyen Brings Social Skills, Gains Pragmatic Experience
For several months, R.M. Hoffman has benefited from the internship of Tammy Nguyen, a remarkable San Jose State University student who recently graduated with a Communications Studies Bachelor of the Arts degree. Tammy’s marketing internship has focused on the basics of marketing communications in our digitally-driven Internet era.
My own experience in the world of Silicon Valley technology companies led to our internship program. Internships are valuable for both the student and the company. It was a good day at R.M. Hoffman when Tammy applied for the internship.
Tammy melded her skills with our growing reliance on the Internet for marketing and sales. And sales are going up. By every measure – and in academic grading– Tammy earns a 4.0 in her job. At this writing, Tammy is continuing into the summer, and continues to be an important part of the R.M. Hoffman team.
To showcase her achievements, we suggested that Tammy document her experience in a totally appropriate way: with a self-edited YouTube interview. We think you’ll enjoy it. Take a look (~ 2.5 minutes). As Tammy says with emphasis, “I’ve learned a lot.” We have, too, Tammy, and we are grateful:
