Mark your calendars one year in advance. The Japan Fluid Power System Society (JFPS) will be hosting the 6th JFPS International Symposium on Fluid Power November 7-10, 2005 in Tsukuba, Japan. Co-sponsored by the Fluid Power Net International (FPNI), the symposium will address such fluid power developments as water hydraulics and functional fluids, as well as presentations of research, applications, and case studies. For more information on the symposium, go to http://rbi.ims.ca/3857-517.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
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.
