2017 Salt Lake City Seminar Schedule

Tuesday, October 17th


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.


Featured Seminar on the Future of Manufacturing
10:15am – 11:15 am
Additive Manufacturing: The Future of Manufacturing Applications & Trends
Robert Smith, CEO of Qualified Rapid Products

This presentation will cover introduction of industrial 3D printing, current advantages and limits of the technology, case studies and comments on emerging trends.

Robert has over 20 years’ experience in additive manufacturing and product development and a master’s degree in mechanical engineering.

11:30am – 12:30pm
The Smartest All-In-One 3D Sensors on the Planet
Bryant Parker, In-Position Technologies 

•            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 to provide feedback for assembly and quality control processes, ensuring quality products. 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 resolution, these sensors are used in applications  from inspecting automotive parts, to mapping road geometry, to mechanical inspections of electronic devices and circuit boards. This class will provide an overview of software interface, common applications,and 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.


12:45pm – 1:45pm

Cybersecurity for Manufacturers
Vic Berger, CEO & Principal Consultant
Opsis Technologies/Utah MEP
Understanding the U.S. Government Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) contract requirements, for information security protection, through NIST (SP) 800-171

The U.S. Government is taking extreme efforts to protect its information systems and data from cyberattacks. Many of these attacks come from nation-state hackers, criminal syndicates, and political or ideologically driven zealots bent on the destruction of the U.S. Government. One of the most significant threats to the government is indirect vulnerabilities and the breach potential created through sub-contracted ownership, control, and access of sensitive information by government contractors and sub-contracts. This session will address the Risk and Exposure to the U.S. Government, and the government’s mandate to address contract risk: NIST (Special Publication) 800-171 – Protecting Controlled Unclassified Information in Nonfederal Information Systems and Organizations.

Vic is the CEO and principal consultant for Opsis Technologies Group, a Service Disabled, Veteran Owned Small Business. Vic has over 25 years of experience in information security and specializes in Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) with customers in all levels of government, fortune 500 companies, and small businesses nationwide. He has held over 40 different security certifications and is a regular speaker, author, and resource for information security conferences, publications, and forums.


11:30am – 12:30pm
Next Generation Collaborative Robotics
Christian Hunter, In-Position Technologies

•            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 used to be a difficult process requiring years of experience.  This seminar provides you an overview of collaborative robots and how they can easily be applied in your facility.  You will learn the types of tasks most suited for robotic automation and the basic steps for implementation.  If you prefer to use automation integrators, this seminar will give you the vocabulary to define what you want and the questions to ask to create a successful project. All material will be demonstrated using an actual 6-axis industrial robot to maximize your learning experience with additional “hands-on” time where you apply what you have learned.

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.


Why Lighting Control Systems, How and When To Use Them
Kim Dixon, DD Lighting Sales

In most factories, warehouses, and offices, lighting is a major piece of the power consumption in the facility. Technologies in LED lighting and lighting controls systems are no longer the future. They are here and have advance to the level that makes them not only practical but an absolute necessity in todays power hungry environments. In this seminar Mr. Dixon will talk about the benefits of installing LED Efficient lighting systems and further controlling those and other systems using Touche’s lighting control systems. Mr. Dixon will discuss incentives and typical pay back periods as well as national and state code requirements for new and existing facilities. We will review case studies for the General Motors installation in 2015 and Sweetwater installation in 2014.
