Get ready for a mammoth manufacturing get together. More than 2,000 top suppliers of automation technology will gather on February 11 through 13 for ATX West at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, Calif.
Vendors will show off technology for a wide range of industries. Attendees will see displays for assembly, robotics, vision inspection systems, motion control, and more. Exposition and Learning Labs take place throughout the show.
ATX West is part of a joint exhibition that includes a number of specialized shows, including: The Pacific Design and Manufacturing Show, PACK West, Electronics West, Aerocon, Plastec West, and more. ATX West attendees will have access to a total of six co-located events covering design, medical, packaging, plastics, and electronics.
Top features come free with registration. They include speed networking events (new to the 2014 show), Innovation Tours (a behind-the-scenes tour of the latest technology), and Tech Theater (educational sessions directly on the show floor). In addition, you can upgrade your admission to include the all new Learning Labs consisting of two-hour sessions covering the hottest topics in automation, robotics, design, R&D, and manufacturing.
Awesome suggestion. I have two students in the ITT Tech ET Club who would be interested in developing gadgets for the column. I've got a few concepts as well that I need to bounce off with you if your time permits.
That's a pretty awesome promo video for the show. I'm pleased to see a strong presence of robotics being utilized in the manufacturing sector. Also, its nice to know manufacturing is returning to the states to help out the state of economy. Last, having Gadget Freak winners display their cool projects provides a nice Maker touch to the show since the emphasis is on building products. Very nice promo video!
I agree. The promo video really motivates you to attend the show. It's quite impressive to see most of the exhibits displaying forms of robotic systems to aid in the automation manufacturing process in the video. Looks like a good show to attend.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
Biomedical engineering is one of the fastest growing engineering fields; from medical devices and pharmaceuticals to more cutting-edge areas like tissue, genetic, and neural engineering, US biomedical engineers (BMEs) boast salaries nearly double the annual mean wage and have faster than average job growth.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
