Molding in Value and Performance via Powder Metallurgy
The objective of every design effort is to achieve efficient fit, form and function. The chief advantage of powder metallurgy in reaching this goal is derived from its economical and efficient shape-forming capabilities. Appreciating the powder metallurgy process and its shape-forming and mechanical performance capabilities opens the door to wide range of successful component design applications.
Presented by James R. Dale, Vice President of Member and Industry Relations, Metal Powder Industries Federation

Connecting Manufacturing & Design
With the right approach to interoperability, and a communication standard tailored to the environment, the manufacturing technology industry can mirror the success of the information technology industry, where common, open industry standards are used to design hardware and software that enable different manufacturers' products to work with each other. This presentation will explore the ways in which MTConnect, an open, royalty-free communication standard, can bring end-to-end interoperability to the manufacturing environment.
Presented by Dave Edstrom, President and Chairman of the Board, MTConnect Institute

Micro Machining Ultra Precision Dust-Speck-Size Parts and Features
Medical, aerospace, energy, and electronics markets require tinier, less invasive, and/or space-saving micro devices. The tiniest parts in an assembly are often the ones that enable the device's primary function, but are also the components most likely to pose manufacturing, handling, and assembly challenges. These products require customized, integrated, and automated solutions to ensure their success out of the gate. This presentation provides an overview of the advances in micro machining and assembly technology relating to these micro devices.
Presented by Donna Bibber, Micro Engineering Expert, Micro Engineering Solutions, LLC
2:30 PM – 3:00 PM EDT (11:30 AM – 12:00 AM PDT)
Waterjet Cutting Systems—Pumps, Pressures and Applications
Waterjet cutting is the world's fastest growing manufacturing technology. Learn about the types of pumps that are at the heart of this technology—how they operate, their relative capabilities and limitations, their range of pressure output and how to select the right pump for your waterjet cutting application.

The Green Side of Cryogenic Processing
Metal tempering techniques have long been employed to extend the useful life of tools and parts through the realignment of molecular structures. This presentation explains how using ultra-low temperatures in a computer-controlled process can produce dramatic results in abrasive wear resistance, tensile strength and durability. By extending the life of metal tools and parts, the carbon footprint of any business can be reduced.
