Cleveland Seminar Schedule


2017 AmCon Cleveland Seminars

Tuesday, September 19th

9:00am – 10:00am
Power of Persuasion
Video Presentation by Robert Cialdini

Call it persuading, negotiating or convincing. Ethical influence is the foundation of successful leadership, management, sales, and customer service. Robert Cialdini has spent his career systematically studying the psychology of influence. In this video, he reveals what lies at the heart of his findings: the six principles of influence that form the basis of effective, persuasive appeals. These principles-reciprocation, scarcity, authority, commitment, liking, and consensus-may seem like the jargon of social scientists, but Cialdini brings them to life. In this dynamic presentation, Dr. Cialdini provides clear step-by-step examples of behaviors that you can put to use daily to increase your influence. You will learn why you say yes to some offers, simply based on the way they are presented. And you’ll learn how to defend against offers that you’re really not interested in, no matter how effectively they’re presented. This free presentation is a $95 value, but it could save you thousands. Attend this Free Negotiating Skills presentation then visit the AmCon exhibits and apply what you’ve learned on the show floor.

Cold Heading Basics & Opportunities
William Tunison, WCS Industries   www.wcsindustries.com
Cold Heading 101
The BasicsWhere to start and what to consider

You say tomato I say tomahto: Cold Heading or Cold Forming as it is sometimes referred are both the same operation and is based on the process that produces parts at room temperature by forging the material past its elastic limits using a progression of dies. Cold Heading typically results in a much higher material yield, higher run rates and superior material properties compared to machining.

This seminar and discussion will cover how Cold Heading works and the benefits of Cold Heading.

Topics will include:

  • Overview of Cold Heading
  • Why Cold Forming
  • Material for Cold Heading
  • Metal Forming Process
  • Do’s and Don’ts of Cold Heading
  • Design Parameters, Constraints and Tolerances
  • Changing a Feature to Save Cost
  • Die Progression
  • Machined vs. Cold Headed Parts (examples)
  • Cost considerations machined parts vs. Cold Headed (examples)
  • Secondary Operations
  • Examples of Different Cold Heading Operations
  • Cold Heading Tooling and Costs
  • Wrap up and discussion

 

11:30am-12:30pm

2:00-3:00
What is Rotational Molding
Tom Fish & Patricia Robinson, LT Molding Solutions   www.ltmolding.com

Rotational Molding, also called rotomolding or rotocast, is a thermoplastic process for producing hollow parts by placing powder or liquid resin into a hollow mold and then rotating that tool bi-axially in an oven until the resin melts and coats the inside of the mold cavity.
