The Power Transmission Distributors Association is holding its industry summit, October 14-16, at Disney's Contemporary Resort. This conference was designed to focus on where manufacturing and motion control/ power transmission equipment supply companies fit into their market and what separates them from their competitors. Program highlights include workshops and keynote speakers from the power transmission field. Registration is now available at the PTDA Industry Summit website: http://rbi.ims.ca/3853-528.
The new composites manufacturing innovation center is intended to be a source of grand challenges for industry, like the kind that got us to the moon under JFK. These aren't the words its new CEO Craig Blue used, but that's the idea and the vision behind the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI).
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.
