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.

10:15am – 11:15am
The Smartest All-In-One 3D Sensors on the Planet
Seth Garrison and Joshua Schnitzer, In-Position Technologies    www.lmi3d.com

Highlights:

  • Scan, measure and control within a single device
  • Laser Line Profile and Structured-Light Snapshot Sensors
  • Using LMI Gocator Series to increase quality and throughput

Inline inspection can make a big difference in production quality and line efficiency. The LMI Gocator series has built-in measurement tools capable of providing accurate feedback to greatly improve assembly and quality control processes. With a user friendly interface, PLC connectivity, and open-source SDK, LMI sensors are easily integrated into existing systems to solve 3D measurement control challenges. With micron level resolutions, these sensors are used in applications from inspecting automotive parts and mapping road geometries, to mechanical inspections of electronic devices and circuit boards. This seminar will provide an overview of the software interface, common applications and application stories, as well as an understanding of the powerful capabilities of using laser light profilers for measurement.
In-Position Technologies combines decades of experience in Motion Control, Automation, and Robotics to provide unmatched support for factories, production centers, laboratories, and machine builders.

11:30-12:30
Operational Efficiencies with 3D Technologies (On-Site Technical Centers)
Jason Yocum & Alisa Yocum, Stax 3D.           www.stax3d.com

On-Site technical Centers can drive down total cost of doing business related to engineering-production operations. The pathway necessary to design, build, test, re-design, re-build, re-test, manufacture and get to market is very costly in terms of time, energy, money and any lost opportunities along the way. Our aim is to engage, educate, and empower companies by providing equipment, training, and opportunities to coordinate action within small to large organizations with the purpose of driving unnecessary costs out of operations.

 

12:45pm-1:45pm
Beyond Stereolithography: Functional Aluminum & Plastic Prototypes
Paul Armstrong, Armstrong Plastic Mold Corp.           www.armstrongmold.com

By marrying the new rapid prototyping modeling techniques with traditional crafts based casting and tooling approaches, it is now possible to get high quality, spec material metal and plastic prototypes in 2-3 weeks at relatively low cost. This seminar will take you from CAD concept thru finished prototype parts.

Negotiation Do’s & Don’ts
Video Presentation by Margaret Neale

Program Highlights

  • What is your biggest source of power in any negotiation?
  • How to redraw the boundaries of a negotiation in your favor.
  • How focusing on the upside improves your deal.

It’s better to receive the first offer than to give it. Honesty is the best negotiating policy. Professor Neale convincingly debunks these common beliefs as she shares the results of empirical research on negotiating strategies and the process of “mutual influence” that drives negotiation. This informative one-hour video presentation will help you get the best deal you can when negotiating with suppliers (or anyone). Find out what works and what doesn’t. This free presentation is a $95 value, but it could save you thousands. Attend this Free Negotiating video presentation then visit the AmCon exhibits and apply what you’ve learned on the show floor.

10:15am-11:15am
Next Generation Collaborative Robotics
Seth Garrison and Joshua Schnitzer, In-Position Technologies       http://www.iptech1.com

Highlights:

  • The collaborative difference:  Safety, Reliability, and Ease of Use
  • Increasing throughput without hiring more labor
  • Using robotics to maximize the ROI of your most expensive machinery

Automation in manufacturing has always been seen as a difficult process requiring years of experience.  This seminar is a conversation about collaborative robotics and how they can be applied easily in your facility.  In this seminar, you will get a feel for the types of tasks most suited for robotic automation as well as the basic steps for implementation.  If you prefer to use automation integrators, this seminar will also give you the vocabulary to define your requirements and know what questions to ask to create a successful project. All material will be demonstrated using an actual 6-axis industrial robot and autonomous vehicle to maximize your learning experience with additional “hands-on” time where you apply what you have learned.

11:30am-12:30pm
Get to know IEC61131-3 Programming Environment
John Lin – Parker Automation Group   http://www.iptech1.com

Highlights:
•             What is IEC61131-3?
•             6-languages of IEC61131-3
•             Benefits of IEC61131-3

Reducing machine startup time is critical to the success of any automation project. Using the right hardware is essential but using the right programming environment can further reduce machine startup time. IEC61131-3 programming environment can help you reduce your machine startup time. IEC61131-3 has been around and well accepted in Europe for many years. It is becoming popular in the United States. IEC61131-3 programming environment has languages to meet specific application’s needs or programmer’s preference. Many controllers being marketed as automation controllers or machine controllers require IEC61131-3 programming software.
