Plan to attend The IIC 2018 Conferences to gain deeper insights into new manufacturing technologies and ideas!

About the topic 

Precision actuators have evolved from the old pneumatic technology of the 1950s to the modern smart actuator of the 21st century. The new electronic actuators are programmable in velocity, position, and force and give real-time feedback as work is being performed. This combination can be used to perform quality checks of critical parts inline during the manufacturing process. Capping, leak test, screw-driving, switch/button testing, die bonding, thread checking, measurement, and many more applications have seen leaps in the quality of goods produced and reduced manufacturing costs. This session will discuss examples from electronics, packaging, and especially automotive, where a prominent airbag manufacturer, using old technology, resulted in customer injuries and recalls while another airbag manufacturer, using smart electronic actuators, continued production without issue.

Registration is now open, so check out the IMTS 2018 website for more information.
