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.
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!
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.
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.
Some humanoid walking robots are also good at running, balancing, and coordinated movements in group settings. Several of our sports robots have won regional or worldwide acclaim in the RoboCup soccer World Cup, or FIRST Robotics competitions. Others include the world's first hockey-playing robot and a trash-talking Scrabble player.
A recent example of a major CAE revamp is MSC Apex, released last month by MSC Software Corp. In a discussion with Design News, MSC executives noted that its next-generation platform is designed to substantially reduce CAE modeling and process time, “in some cases from weeks down to hours.”
The Thames Deckway would run for eight miles close to the river’s edge, rising and falling slightly with the tidal cycle. It will generate its own energy from a series of devices that will line the pathway and use a combination of sources to make the path self-sustaining.
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.
