Design Chain Associates will present a 2 ½ hour web-based training session on how REACH will impact manufacturers who sell into Europe. The training will be held live on December 16 at 8:30 Pacific time for North America, and at 5:00 Pacific time (December 17, locally) for Asia.
The training session will cover:

Substance disclosure - current and future requirements for you and your supply chain
Customer and consumer demands - what information you must provide to your business customers; what can be asked for by “consumers”; how and when you should respond
Substance authorization and restriction - the process and potential impact to product design and manufacturing
Enforcement - near-term article targets
Actions and business process changes - what your company should be doing now and for the future
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
