Permanent Magnet Topics At SMMA Fall Technical Meeting

Sat, Oct 3, 2009


The SMMA (Motor and Motion Association) Fall Technical Conference takes place Nov 3-5, 2009 in Arlington Heights, Illinois this year.  Dr. Stan Trout of Spontaneous Materials will be giving a half-day pre-conference seminar titled “Permanent Magnets Fundamentals“ in the afternoon of Nov 3.  As I’ve said before, Stan is one of the best instructors I know of, on practical aspects of magnets and magnetic materials.  If you’re attending the Fall Technical Conference, I would recommend attending Stan’s seminar too.

In addition to Stan’s pre-conference workshop, there are a number of specific talks at this event of direct relevance to those with an interest in permanent magnets:

  • Achieving Higher Power Density and Efficiency with Parallel Path Magnetic Technology – PJ Piper, QM Power Inc.
  • High Performance Permanent Magnets for Motors and Generators – Peter Dent, Electron Energy Corp
  • Stabilization and Calibration of Permanent Magnets – Steve Constantinides, Arnold Magnetic Technologies

I may well be attending this meeting, so do say hello if you are too…
