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…
