2018 Seattle (Bellevue) Seminar Schedule

2018 Bellevue Seminar Schedule

Monday, February 19

9:00am – 10:00am
Design for Additive Manufacturing
Tomeo Wise, FATHOM                             

With the rapid advancement and propagation of additive manufacturing technologies, the need to understand and plan for how best to leverage these processes becomes more important every day. This includes not only understanding how the specific processes work, but changing the way parts are designed and embracing the expanding freedom of complexity afforded by the shifting manufacturing paradigm.
In this session, we will look at the current state of additive manufacturing and how it is being implemented today. We will also be exploring the need to change the way we approach design to utilize the full advantages of additive manufacturing.

Digital Manufacturing – 3D Printing & Scanning
Shane Stahl/Tom Goulet/Luke Davis, Hawk Ridge Systems

We will be discussing new technology from HP and MarkForged in the additive manufacturing space. This equipment is transforming the way we design and manufacture parts.  We will also discuss the new equipment coming- full color thermoplastics and Metal 3D Printing.


Getting the Most from Your Visit to an EMC Testing Laboratory
Randy Clark, CKC Laboratories, Inc

EMC Basics: The physics of EMC.

– Targeted towards complete newcomers to EMC, i.e. you don’t have to be an electrical engineer
– A general introduction to the topic of EMC
– General EMC design principles
– Technical and non-technical solutions
– Recommendations for your trip to the lab

The Greatest Risk To Your Company Is Your Own People
Jim Bachaud, CEO, Stratocent Technologies

To protect our businesses, we install locks on the doors, security cameras, perform background checks on new candidates, maybe even hire security guards. But how do we deal with critical company and customer data? We hand our employees an email account, make them read an acceptable use policy and hope they behave themselves. Then, they open an email from “IT” that tells them to verify their login credentials and the next thing you know, someone has full access to the data on your network. Lets talk for a bit about cyber security and the single largest threat to business today.


Precision Aluminum Castings Utilizing Rapid Prototype Tooling Process
Larry Pentz/Robert Delvalle, Pentz Cast Solutions

Real Castings Real Fast – Rapid Prototyping with Aluminum Castings by Pentz Cast Solutions

Tuesday, February 20th

9:00am to 10:00am
Layers of Successful 3D Printers
Taylor Gonzales, Quest Integration

You have invested in your FDM printer, now make sure that you are getting the most out of your investment. Learn how to avoid common 3D printing pitfalls and reach the peak of your printer’s capabilities. We will tackle the 20% of settings causing 80% of your issues. Make sure you avoid reprinting and save money on materials. This is a non-brand specific 3D printer presentation.

10:15am to 11:15am
Industrial CT Scanning – Reduce Costs & Accelerate Production
Anthony Talbert, Delphi Precision Imaging

. Brief overview of basics of Industrial CT – high resolution of inside features
. Use cases for today’s engineers – product development, testing, quality control, failure analysis, reverse engineering
. How to implement into development, design and/or manufacturing process
. Data review of sample parts with overview of executable software
. Q & A

Changing the way you Research and Develop, Formulate, and Manufacture through Mixing
Ned Buckingham, FlakTek Inc.

We believe problem solving and formulating should be simple and reliable, and trust that partnerships are the best way to provide those solutions. We do that by utilizing the SpeedMixer Technology, which is a bladeless, non-invasive mixing technology that eliminates air bubbles as it mixes and homogenizes. It can

be used to mix colloids, fluids, powders, pastes, creams, grease, resins, inks, paints, silicone mixtures, and more. The mixing process is fast and repeatable, with no cleanup or risk of material contamination. The SpeedMixer has revolutionized applications and industries including cosmetics, aerospace, medical device, consumer care, raw materials, paints and inks, pharmaceutical, sealants, coatings, biological, oil and gas, and nanotechnology.



Aluminum V-Process Castings                                                                           
Harmony Castings

This seminar will cover V-Process aluminum casting technology and its advantages, pattern-making techniques and CNC machining of castings. Fundamental casting design and cost drivers for both prototype and production casting and machining requirements will be discussed. Applications to medical, automotive, instrumentation, computer, electronics, optics, and communications will be reviewed. All attendees will be given a “Design Considerations and Technical Data for V-Process Castings” guidebook.



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.
