Advanced Materials and ManufacturingThe fourth in a series, the 2014 Workshop will address the latest developments in applied advanced processing techniques. Presentations by leading researchers from academia, industry, and government will focus on applied research suitable for implementation in manufacturing within industry and government agencies. In addition, a tour of the Quad City Manufacturing Laboratory (QCML) will consist of demonstrations of advanced manufacturing processes such as laser additive manufacturing (both powder bed fusion and direct energy deposition techniques), spark plasma sintering, friction stir welding, and digital manufacturing. This workshop is open to everyone, including scientists and engineers from industry, government and academia. Members of the local and extended Quad City Manufacturing Laboratory (QCML) network are especially encouraged to attend, but it will have broad appeal to anyone who works on the topics covered. On Tuesday, September 9th, join the Illinois Manufacturing Excellence Center (IMEC), the Quad Cities Chamber and many other great local resources for the Advanced Manufacturing Workshop Reception Dinner. Vendors will showcase manufacturing-related services and engage with the manufacturing representatives from across Iowa and Illinois.
