About us

FixChip is the sister company of PaletteCAD.nl BV.

Tom Smeets, the inventor of FixChip, has 40 years of experience in mechanical woodworking.

At the age of 16, he began working as a mechanical woodworker, moving on to project management from where he began working on production process automation.

In mid 2000, he was instrumental in revolutionizing the window industry by being the first to automate window production on a CNC machine from the project management phase.
