With the ever-increasing variety of latching products on the market today, engineers who design enclosures have lots to learn. And now they have a place to get some schooling. DIRAK Inc. has opened a new training center in Chantilly, VA. The center features an application gallery, live demos, design classes with DIRAK's technical experts, and a resource library. Some of the programs focus on applying the company's "intelligent" electronic latches. For more information, visit http://rbi.ims.ca/3849-526.
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.
