Electronic Archive of Technology

Electronic Archive of Technology

Once upon a time, and more precisely in the 19th and 20th centuries, technical drawings of machines and devices used to be recorded on special, unique glass plates. For this reason, unfortunately not everyone has access to them – and in our view should! What is worse, some of them are not described at all. Drawings recorded on them must be identified by specialist mechanics. An investigation is conducted in cooperation with the Association of Polish Engineers and Mechanical Technicians.

It resulted in opening of an electronic Archive of Technology. This special database is large didactic support for students and research workers. It is also a favourite place of those who are interested in science and who want to see how scientific solutions are transferred to industrial practice.
