Attendees of National Manufacturing Week can visit numerous conference sessions on a variety of tracks. In the Design Engineering track, the more than 45 courses and workshops offered include "Product Reliability Engineering and Management," and "Living with WEEE/RoHS and Global Environmental Regulations," among many others.
In "Manufacturing: the Future," an analysis of the health and prosperity of manufacturing industries will be demonstrated by studying trends revealed among Fortune 1000 manufacturing enterprises and smaller, "goods producing" operations, and will discuss the possible future manufacturing strategies for both large and small enterprises.
The "Design of Experiments" workshop will demonstrate the "sweet spots" of design variables and teach attendees how to structure a range of experiments, from quickly organized, simple plans to the more complex ones focused on minimizing experimental effort.
Participants will have the opportunity to suggest questions in advance of the event. Go to www.nationalmanufacturingweek.com.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
