From chess to ARTIST STUDIO: Welcome, Alex!

Our cevoTeam is growing fast and beginning of September, the software team got a new colleague.  Oleksandr Tkachenko, preferably called Alex, graduated from Admiral Makarov National University of Shipbuilding in Mykolaiv, Ukraine, with a Bachelor’s in computer science. Afterwards, he worked on various projects for multiple desktop and mobile platforms using different programming languages and frameworks, but his main technology stack is C++, Qt and Visual Studio. Before coming to Germany, he was self-employed for the last five years founding and working for a company which developed strategic computer games.

Due to his excellent C++ background, Alex’ main task as Software Engineer at Cevotec is to improve our ARTIST STUDIO software, focusing on the CAM module MOTION ARTIST in the beginning. “I love the fact that you can see with your own eyes that the software we are working on is used to produce real parts just next to our working place in the cevoLab”, answered Alex when asked why he chose Cevotec. In his free time, he plays badminton, video games and chess. Alex actually dreamed to become a chess professional when he was young. But fortunately for us, he then discovered his passion for IT, computers and programming and decided to make software development his profession. We’re happy to have such a passionate team member on board – Welcome, Alex!


About Cevotec

Munich-based automation specialist Cevotec offers one of the world’s most advanced production systems for complex fiber composites. At the intersection of composites, mechanical engineering and software, Cevotec develops production systems and software based on Fiber Patch Placement (FPP) technology: SAMBA and ARTIST STUDIO. The production systems enable the automated lay-up of carbon fiber, glass fibers, adhesive films and other technical fibers on complex 3D geometries. Manufacturers use FPP technology to produce e.g. multi-material aerostructures, composite pressure vessel reinforcements, and other high-performance components in a quality-controlled, fully automated process, which enables them to realize cost & cycle time savings of 20%-60% when switching from conventional processes to Fiber Patch Placement.
