Stebbing Recording Centre started out as a recording studio in the mid-1940’s and since then has moved into cassette, VHS, CD and DVD replication. Their replication facilities in Ponsonby transform raw polycarbonate into the fully packaged CDs and DVDs that are available at retail outfits all over New Zealand. This field trip is an excellent opportunity to see a high-tech industrial automation facility that incorporates all areas of electrical and computer engineering.
