In today's business environment, personnel changes are being made at an unprecedented pace as companies downsize, merge, and transfer operations to all parts of the globe.

More than ever, opportunities for obtaining additional information about the manufacturing processes or new materials used in many appliance components are vital to maintaining job proficiency.

One of the major education opportunities is the Electrical Insulation Conference/Electrical Manufacturing & Coil Winding Expo, which continues to be the largest international event for the materials and process equipment used in the manufacture of electrical devices.

Organized by the Insulation and Dielectric society of IEEE, the Insulating Materials Division of NEMA, and EMCWA the event is the only conference and exhibition organized and owned by not-for-profit organizations supporting the electrical products industry.

Planning and organization for the Sept. 23-25, 2003, Exposition at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis, IN, U.S. was finalized at a meeting in mid-February of more than 60 volunteers. The various committees met to finalize arrangements, including publicity and other activities, to ensure the event's success.

Major emphasis was placed on the content of the Conference Program, including sessions on fuel cells; transformer design; magnetic applications; motor component design and manufacturing; innovations in manufacturing coils, hybrid and electric vehicle technology; adhesive applications; and product testing. There are a variety of short courses, including insulating materials and processes, and polymer chemistry for engineers. The Association of International Motion Engineers will present short courses that lead to certification as a Certified Motion Engineer.

The Industry Awards dinner, to be held on Sept. 24, 2003, will feature an address by Dean Kamen, who recently invented the Segway Human Transporter. The invention is said to improve upon the most basic form of transportation - walking - by allowing people to go farther, move more quickly, and carry more without separating them from their everyday walking environment. As founder of DEKA Research and Development in 1982, Mr. Kamen patented a fluid management system that became the core of the Baxter HomeChoice PD peritoneal dialysis machine. Mr. Kamen will receive the EIC Golden Omega Award at the dinner, which in the past, has been presented to such notables as David Packard of Hewlett-Packard, Robert Galvin of Motorola, and William Lear of the Lear jet fame.

These events provide an opportunity for those responsible for the design and manufacturing of electrical components to meet with experts from all facets of the industry with answers to product design and manufacturing problems.
