Manufacturing Expo will take place at the Indiana Convention Center
(Indianapolis, IN, U.S.) on Sept. 20-22, 2004 and has been expanded
to include those vendors who offer components or services to provide
manufacturers with the option of “outsourcing” some of the
components used in their products. The exhibit hall will continue to
incorporate the process equipment and materials used in manufacturing
motors, transformers, and other electrical devices.
The technical conference
will feature 22 sessions incorporating new presentations on subjects
such as armature and coil manufacturing, fuel cell applications,
ultracapacitors, industrial motors and drives, transformer design, sensor
technology, and energy considerations. In addition, there are 11 short
courses on a variety of subjects such as brushless PM motors and motor
performance, fuel cell applications, and armature manufacturing.
other groups are holding concurrent activities. The Institute of Electrical/Electronic
Engineers (IEEE) is holding its International
Symposium on Electrical Insulation (ISEI) on Sept. 19-21, 2004 at the
Indiana Center. The IEEE-ISEI Conference will feature more than 175 presentations
on new developments in insulation materials and applications.
to this, the Association of International Motion Engineers is offering
courses on Basics of Motion Control and Electric Motors and
Drives. The Small Motors & Motion Association (SMMA) is presenting
a short course on the design of PM d.c. motors.
The Electrical Manufacturing
Expo is organized by the Electrical Manufacturing & Coil
Winding Association (EMCWA), a not-for-profit voluntary organization
dedicated to the furtherance of the conception, research, design, manufacturing,
and use of electrical products. Proceeds from the annual conference and
trade show have provided more than U.S. $1.6 million in engineering scholarships
to universities across the U.S.
You may ask why you should attend trade
shows in today’s information
age when material on most products is available on the Internet. We at
EMCWA believe that trade shows offer the opportunity to interface directly
with potential vendors. It is the one place to see a variety of suppliers
and speak to the product experts.
The central location of Indianapolis,
one of the least-expensive U.S. cities for air travel, offers an ideal
venue for this event. To find
