Agenda

9:00am-10:00am 
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.

10:15 am -11:15 am 
The Smartest All-In-One 3D Sensors on the Planet
Brett Dooley, 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 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.

11:30am – 12:30pm 
Lean Robotics, Mitchell Conn, In-Position Technologies   www.iptech1.com/pdf/Leanroboticsbook.pdf

Highlights:

How Robotics Cells Are Deployed Today/

What’s Wrong With How Robotic Cells Are Deployed Today

A Better Way: Lean Robotics (What is Lean Robotics?)

Principles of Lean Robotics

Lean Robotics is a set of principles developed by Robotiq CEO Samuel Bouchard. In his book, Sam and his team lay out an efficient and cost effective method to deploy robots in factories with the goal of achieving a quick Return on Investment to the manufacturer. Modern robotic cells   are often too costly and difficult to convert most manual manufacturing processes. This seminar will explore  how the Principals in Lean Robotics can provide manufacturers with the tools needed to significantly reduce the cost and complexity of robotic cell deployment. The seminar will provide an overview of the fundamental aspects of Lean Robotics and provide an explanation of the methodology used to simplify the deployment of robots in factories.

12:45pm-1:45pm  
Aluminum V-Process Castings                                                                             
Erik Depczynski, TPI Arcade                                www.tpialuminumcastings.com

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.

10:15am – 11:15am

Next Generation Collaborative Robotics
Brett Dooley, In-Position Technologies   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 is 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.  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 reveal the vocabulary to speak to 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 and autonomous vehicle to maximize your learning experience with additional “hands-on” time where you apply what you have learned.

11:30am – 12:30pm 
Additive Production: Safe Bet or Barely a Buzz Word?
Ladd McCluskey, Primary Manufacturing     www.primarymfg.com

Mr. McCluskey has been presenting seminars on technical topics for the past 18 years.  His sessions are both informative and lively as Mr. McCluskey is an engineer that connects with his audience.  This session will discuss the current benefits and drawbacks of plastic additive production in today’s manufacturing environment.  With a deeper look into the use of the Carbon M series of machines in the additive manufacturing world.  Discussions around materials, dimensions, tolerances, costs, and what new can also be expected.
