Baseball and Life

I have been managing my son’s baseball teams since he was 3 years old. He is 17 now, and this will be our last season together. When I see him on the field, I feel so much pride in knowing what a great kid he was; teenager he is; and man he will someday be. 

As coaches, we have always recognized the tremendous responsibilities that are inherent to coaching a team sport. The things we have emphasized over the years have helped shape who they are and will become.

Wineman Office Spotlight: Raleigh, NC

To help engineers develop test systems in the southeast region, Wineman launched the Raleigh, NC office in August of 2011. Since that time, the team has provided surge support to test engineering teams for ongoing design efforts or created one-of-a-kind test systems from the ground up across more than 100 projects.

How can the Raleigh team help you?

Wineman Technology Hub Test Rig Featured in Automotive Testing Technology International

A custom, state-of-the-art hub test stand developed by Wineman Technology was recently featured in Automotive Testing Technology International, and  OEM Off-Highway publications. We worked with GKN Wheels & Structures – a global company that provides products and services for agriculture, construction, mining, and other off-highway industries – to increase their hub and spindle fatigue testing capabilities. The goals of the new hub test equipment were to eliminate expensive field testing, develop lighter hub castings, and speed time-to-market.

Top Two Lessons Learned from FIRST Robotics 2017 Season


I’ve been trying to find time to write a blog about my experiences with FIRST Robotics Competition since I wrote the first one last year. This is my third year working with a First Team and my first year as the head coach. I’d like to tell that I have everything figured out and that my 25+ years of experience building custom equipment, using LabVIEW and managing engineers has made team 5703 a championship-level team however, I must admit that I learn more every year than the students do. Sure, I have more experience and technical skills than they do but they certainly have me beat in terms of enthusiasm, a “can do” attitude and imagination. After a long build and competition season I’m tired and ready for a break but I can’t help but feel renewed after working with the students.

Wineman Technology CANalytics Platform Now on the LabVIEW Tools Network

We are happy to announce that Wineman Technology CANalytics software is now available on the NI LabVIEW Tools Network. The CANalytics platform provides an interface to maximize the benefits of CAN bus hardware, particularly for automotive and aerospace applications where it provides a durable network that supports communication between multiple electronic control units (ECUs). With the CANalytics LabVIEW API, engineers can save time and money by easily creating an interface to integrate with a LabVIEW application, rather than developing a completely custom GUI for every CAN application.
