Engineers are invited to ASME International Gas Turbine's Gas Turbine Users Symposium (GTUS) at the 2004 Power-Gen International conference in Orlando. The conference, being held (Nov. 30 to Dec. 2) will deliver training and information to engineers and other professionals who operate and maintain industrial gas turbines and aero-engine systems. In addition, four pre-conference workshops are being offered on such subjects as Gas Turbine Fundamentals, Gas Turbine Pollutant Emissions Fundamentals, and Gas Turbine Repair and Metallurgy Techniques.

More and more robots are becoming more autonomous all the time. Now Lockheed Martin has completed a demo mission with two completely autonomous robotic vehicles performing resupply, reconnaissance, surveillance, and target acquisition.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
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.
