First Belgian winner of Dutch design engineering award At the seventeenth edition of the Precision Fair, held on 15 and 16 November in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, DSPE (Dutch Society for Precision Engineering) presented the Wim van der Hoek Award, also known as the Constructors Award, to Sam Peerlinck (KU Leuven, Belgium). Out of nine nominees,

If You Can’t Stand The Heat – Get Out to Dresden

euspen (The European Society for Precision Engineering and Nanotechnology) has announced a joint conference on Thermal Issues in Machine Tools with CRC/TR 96, March 21-23 2018 in Dresden, Germany. As the scale of manufacturing gets smaller, factors that at the macro scale are of no or limited importance become critical. One such is the effect

Focus on Micro & Nano Manufacturing — Only a Few Places Left

Time is running out to register for the up-coming Special Interest Group (SIG) focussed on Micro and Nano Manufacturing, hosted by euspen at Strathclyde University. The word “dynamic” could have been invented for the area of micro and nano manufacturing. It seems as if every day there are advances in fabricating technologies and giant strides

Conference Focuses on Thermal Issues in Precision Engineering

Thermal issues have significant effects in many manufacturing scenarios, but become exacerbated and disproportionately important as the focus intensifies on precision and micro applications. Thermal issues in precision machine tools can have a great influence on machining accuracy, and thermal performance of machine tools must be improved to address this issue. This has now become

Conference Focuses on Dimensional Accuracy and Surface Finish in Additive Manufacturing

Additive manufacturing (AM) continues to provoke huge discussion as it fundamentally questions preconceptions about the future of manufacturing. AM is no longer just a prototyping technology, and much of the focus today is on its transition to a viable and cost-effective direct manufacturing technology. With this transition comes an array of considerations that must be

Miniaturisation in Motion + Control Event (UK)

Discover the drivers, challenges and successes of miniaturisation in modern motion system design. This free event is being held at Renishaw Innovation Centre on September 12th, 2017.  Discover the drivers, challenges and successes of miniaturization in modern motion system design. As the world strives to reach new levels of productivity, it's not just the need for speed that is driving

Special Interest Group Meeting on Micro/Nano Manufacturing

The word “dynamic” could have been invented for the area of micro and nano manufacturing. It seems as if every day there are advances in fabricating technologies and giant strides in the sophistication of metrology and supporting technologies vital when manufacturing parts or features at such small scale. euspen (the European Society for Precision Engineering
