What is “Solecon”?
Ever since Takaha Kiko started an online store for solenoids, we have received many customer reports from our hobbyist/inventors about their interesting creations and products made with sophisticated mechanical technology.
So, we thought we’ve got to have a contest!
Everybody knows about motors but not so much about solenoids!
“Solenoid? What’s that?” is the question we get from people all the time!
Solenoid manufacturer Takaha Kiko therefore decided to host “Solecon” in order to showcase the wonders of this little-known mechanical driver: the solenoid.
