Mind-Blowing Ultrasonic ‘Printer’ Uses Lasers and High-Frequency Sound To Assemble Electronics

(Digital Trends, 6/28/17) Neurotechnology, a Lithuanian software development company, wants to rethink 3D printing using ultrasonic particle manipulation. That might sound pretty far-out and futuristic — but with that goal in mind, the company has developed a radically new kind of printer, capable of “printing” just about anything you can…

Simulating is Believing

(SME – advancedmanufacturing.org, 6/12/17) Simulation tools are making it much easier for manufacturers to optimize their processes, visualizing the entire path of production from NC metalcutting simulations through 3D design and factory-floor imaging. With today’s simulation tools, toolpath designers and manufacturing engineers can easily see exactly where NC toolpaths will…

Printed Parts Take Flight

(3D Cad World, 6/23/17) As the aerospace industry moves toward supersonic travel and other innovations, 3D printing is keeping pace. Last week, Boom Supersonic announced a partnership with 3D-printer-maker Stratasys. Meanwhile, Airbus recently debuted a mini 3D-printed aircraft. Boom will accelerate production of advanced tooling and production-grade aircraft parts using…

University of Hartford Center for Manufacturing and Metrology: Practical Aspects of Scanning Electron Microscopy

University of Hartford Center for Manufacturing and Metrology: Practical Aspects of Scanning Electron Microscopy

COURSE OVERVIEW

The scanning electron microscope has become an indispensable tool in recent years by industrial, government and academic scientists in numerous research, production and quality control applications. Manufacturers of microscopes and accessory equipment have responded to this increased demand with advanced instruments equipped with a wide range of innovative features. To obtain maximum performance from these state-of- the-art instruments, a basic theoretical and practical knowledge of SEM and associated techniques is essential. This course is designed to provide SEM operators with this basic theoretical and practical training by using integrated lectures and hands-on laboratory exercises.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Practical Aspects of Scanning Electron Microscopy: Reboot is an intensive four-day short course, providing a thorough coverage of the basic theory and practice of SEM. Lectures coordinated with supervised laboratory exercises provide students with an informed hands-on experience on contemporary SEMs equipped with modern accessories.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Practical Aspects of Scanning Electron Microscopy: Reboot is directed toward government, academic and industrial users of the SEM who are interested in learning current practical methodology in the operation of the SEM and accessory equipment. The lectures and laboratory exercises are basic and beneficial to microscopists at all levels from novice through advanced user. Due to the limited class size, participants are provided with the opportunity to acquire extensive hands-on experience with modern SEM instrumentation. A total of 15 hours of lecture and 13 hours of hands-on laboratory sessions are scheduled into the four-day course. Extensive discussion time with the experts is also available.

COURSE FEE

The course fee including cost of course materials is $2,495.
