QCML-WIU TechDay 2019

June 13, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

IMEC is a proud sponsor of TechDay on June 13, 2019, hosted by the Quad City Manufacturing Lab & Western Illinois University. This event will feature a variety of advanced manufacturing techniques and demonstrations, and explore how they can be utilized by industry.

Learn how Advanced Manufacturing Technologies can be incorporated in your business:

Increase productivity by incorporating Collaborative Robots and Machine Vision- Collaborative robots enable both automation of tasks (quality inspection, pick & place, assembly, packaging, and more) and side-by-side operation with employees, without the safety issues and costs of industrial robots.

Take advantage of Additive Manufacturing capabilities Use design for additive manufacturing to redesign conventional parts to minimize weight, and reduce fabrication time/cost. Combine multiple parts into fewer parts to reduce assembly costs.

Use 3D Scanning technology for Quality Assurance Implement 3D scanning technology to verify the geometric dimensions and tolerances of products to ensure quality control. 3D scanning also enables reverse engineering of components and provides data required to 3D print the part. With appropriate software the 3D scan data can be converted into a feature-based, editable solid-model.

TechDay Agenda

  • Metal Additive Manufacturing (3D Metal Printing)
    • Design for Additive Manufacturing-Topological Optimization
  • Quality Assurance
    • Robotic 3D Scanning featuring Metrolog software
    • 3D scanning and touch probe technology featuring Hexagon Metrology Romer Absolute Arm and Metrolog Software
  • Process Automation and Machine Vision Using Collaborative Robotics
  • Friction Stir Welding & Processing
  • Advanced Ceramic Processing
  • Analytical Techniques

TechDay 2019 will be hosted at Quad City Manufacturing Lab.
