History of the
company
Mr. Roland
Godbout founded in February 2002, the company Archimedes. A
range of pneumatics and hydraulics products has been
developed and it is now widely distributed throughout
America. These products target manufacturers of equipment
such has dump truck and roll off. These long-term efforts
are the basis for developement which will now accelerate the
upcoming launch of several new products.
Who was Archimedes?
Archimedes of Syracuse (287 BC – c. 212 BC) was a Greek
mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor, and
astronomer. Although few details of his life are known, he
is regarded as one of the leading scientists in classical
antiquity. Among his advances in physics are the foundations
of hydrostatics, statics and an explanation of the principle
of the lever. He is credited with designing innovative
machines, including siege engines and the screw pump that
bears his name. Modern experiments have tested claims that
Archimedes designed machines capable of lifting attacking
ships out of the water and setting ships on fire using an
array of mirrors.
Archimedes is generally considered to be the greatest
mathematician of antiquity and one of the greatest of all
time. He used the method of exhaustion to calculate the area
under the arc of a parabola with the summation of an
infinite series, and gave a remarkably accurate
approximation of pi. He also defined the spiral bearing his
name, formulae for the volumes of surfaces of revolution and
an ingenious system for expressing very large numbers
