A 16-hour, two-day seminar at the Milwaukee School of Engineering is planned for Nov. 8-9 to shed light on electromagnetics and electromagnetic devices. The Analysis of Magnetic Actuators and Sensors Seminar will enable attendees to leave the seminar knowing how to identify different types of magnetic actuators and sensors; analyze simple actuators and sensors with the reluctance method; and analyze simple and complex actuators and sensors with finite element analysis (FEA) software on personal computers. The seminar also includes two lab sessions. For more info, go to http://rbi.ims.ca/3857-516.
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.
