President Stratonics, Inc. founded 1992 with expertise in IR sensing and process control of metal additive manufacturing and more generally, advanced materials processing. Recognized leaders in sensor development and integration with a range of metal AM processes. Won Navy SBIR project to develop multi-sensor/model-based controls for additive manufacturing. SBIR partners include Penn State Univ/ARL and Edison Welding Institute. Founding member of NAMII, now called America Makes, Ohio based non-profit to promote industrial uses of additive manufacturing. Won first round project from America Makes, teaming with Penn State and Carnegie Mellon U, furthering sensor transition into additional AM technologies.
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
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.
