Troy, N.Y.-based Hudson Valley Community College is building a $14.5-million, 37,000-sq.-ft. advanced manufacturing center to train CNC machinists, toolmakers, CNC programmers, and industrial maintenance personnel. The Gene F. Haas Center for Advanced Manufacturing Skills (CAMS) is expected to be completed this May and open in September.
It’s amazing what you can learn at a trade show. Editor in Chief Alan Rooks was reminded of this at the recent EASTEC show. He reflected on his visit with Joe Stanford, vice president, engineering and applications support for Applied Measurement Solutions LLC, Bristol, Conn., the largest metrology distributor for The L.S. Starrett Co., Athol, Mass.
There is a lot of promise in the coming adoption of Model-Based Definition (MBD) in industry. MBD is the practice of attaching useful information to a 3D CAD model, such as tolerances or material properties. This should be especially good news for manufacturing engineers.
Suppliers of metrology equipment are working towards making measurements easier, allowing greater use throughout the manufacturing process.
3DMEDNET, publisher of the journal 3D Printing in Medicine, produced a webinar with useful information for anyone in the throes of setting up and running an in-hospital 3D printing service.
LEO Lane, a Tel Aviv, Israel-based software company, is positioning itself as a resource for manufacturers to get more consistent results from 3D printing.
Simulation in manufacturing is becoming much more pervasive. Advanced visualizations are used everywhere, from machining on shop-floor CNCs to offline CAD/CAM programming of NC equipment.
My first experience with additive manufacturing was 10 years ago when I managed a project to develop a 3D-printed, remotely piloted aircraft. Within this program, a 3D-printed parts producer, that mainly printed prototypes at the time, collaborated with a university and an aerospace systems manufacturer.
Aerospace is an incredibly exacting industry. Everything from design to manufacturing to maintenance must go exactly as planned to keep planes flying safely, and even when they do, mistakes can happen, leading to tragedy.
