Fibernomics is an all-encompassing economic principle and the key to a competitive advantage in today’s sheet metal fabricating environment. It is no longer about how a single piece of machinery will affect the fabrication process, but how all the machines and supporting software technologies work together to create a cohesive and effective fabrication business solution.
Realize Greater Profits and Earnings through Fibernomics
To produce the ultimate in precision bore geometry and surface structuring requires highly engineered bore sizing machine tools using intuitive control platforms. Precision honing and lapping systems are highly automated and engineered to produce consistent, repeatable bore geometries with tolerances almost too small to measure.
This presentation will discuss the rapid advances in these technologies, including bore geometry, surface tribology (plateau finishes, bearing ratios), burr conditions (torn and folded metal) and edge condition, among others.
ROI of advanced technologies implemented in the manufacturing processes is of outmost importance to a lot of plant managers and business owners. In a fast-paced world where timelines are more pressing and expectations are higher, technology is key, and adapting new processes is crucial.
How advanced technologies can provide a solution; for profitability, productivity, retaining and attracting workers; is what we would like to bring to the knowledge bar. Initiating change and approving new technologies in Canada/North America is key to success when labour shortage is becoming a major denominator.
Let’s face it. Canadians can no longer rely on the traditional US market. The steel, aluminum and softwood lumber tariffs are still in place despite new trade agreement. This session will walk manufacturers through the proven methodologies, practical tools and exercises that will help them to find new export markets for their products.
Advancements in materials engineering have broadened the possible applications for the diamond composite material. By engineering grain structure and material makeup, alloyed diamond overcomes the barriers of size and strength traditional polycrystalline diamond (PCD) exhibit. This solution allows for producing complex components that capitalize on diamonds enhanced material properties of hardness, electrical insulation, thermal conductivity, and thermal stability.
This session will dive into the science behind alloyed diamond and investigate applications where the material for exhibits substantial results.
In all types of manufacturing, decision making is a vital part of the routine. Many of these decisions are very often based solely on intuition and/or experience. Lean Six Sigma minimizes the personal elements by using data to quantify the issues. Use of logical tools coupled with basic statistics provides a mean of determining probabilities of success and failure. Experience and tribal knowledge feed into the data gathering process and thus quantifiable validation is required prior to acceptance of decisions.
Would you like to:
- Be at the forefront of Manufacturing?
- Accomplish more in less time?
- Provide Excellent quality of Services?
- Lead breakthrough improvements & revolutionary change?
- Revenue maximization while reducing costs?
This session is designed for manufacturers, business owners, managers, and executives to successfully achieve optimum results within their manufacturing organization. It gives attendees a stronger understanding of Lean Six Sigma, providing each participant the opportunity to discuss and ask how can Six Sigma help in reducing costs due to errors and unwarranted variations to improve efficiency and revenues. Participants gain a deeper understanding of the methodology and its applications and its importance for the organization.
Regarded as the most versatile process in the world, waterjet systems allow fabricators and manufacturers to take on any manner of work. The manufacturing industry is undergoing a transformation, and new technologies are consistently pushing boundaries on what we can make, and how. Waterjets complement other fabricating technologies and are becoming the process of choice for many fabricators and machine shops. Learn how waterjet technology continues to benefit customers, using several smart approaches to maximize performance which includes productivity, cost, and accuracy driving significant gains in the manufacturing industry.
The goal is to expose current manufacturers/designers to the process of laser ablation and start to show them the limitless possibilities that laser ablation can provide. Attendees will also learn new grains being used in due to this technology (geometric patterns) that are very difficult or impossible with current means of texturing (chemical etching).
Learn the benefits of both 3+2 and 5-axis simultaneous machining. Anyone who wants to learn more about 5-axis technology in general should attend. It begins with the most basic fundamentals of machine configuration, covers the benefits of 5-axis, real-world 5-axis applications, workholding and programming, and includes some simple and easy to understand explanations of the terminology that is associated with all levels of 5-axis technology.
My best machinist is retiring next month and I dont have a replacement!
Where am I going to get two electronics engineers for my plant expansion?
I cant find the millwright for a new production line in my building.
I could sure use an experienced plant supervisor.
These are the familiar refrains of several North American manufacturing business owners and human resource managers.
The battle for skilled talent in all aspects of advanced manufacturing is a problem that has reached a critical pain point for many organizations. There are several voices lamenting the lack of new entrants or the availability of skill and experienced people for the large number of available advanced manufacturing positions. But what is actually being done on the ground to address this skill labour gap?
Walter Garrison, Advanced Manufacturing Business Integrator in the City of Mississauga’s Economic Development Office, will discuss the City’s approach to supporting its advanced manufacturers with the need for new entrants into manufacturing as well as the upskilling of current employees.
Mr. Garrison will highlight how two City of Mississauga Building Skilled Talent Together events, bringing together advanced manufacturers, with southern Ontario post-secondary and private training organizations, and provincial and federal funding agencies, resulted in numerous positive outcomes for the City’s advanced manufacturing workforce. He will explain how the City successfully created the environment for businesses to quickly and efficiently access the key people required to address their skilled talent shortages. There will be a discussion of the elements required to create innovative cluster training initiatives for companies and the opportunities to leverage existing programs to upskill current employees at a highly reduced cost and, sometimes, with no cost to the company other than the employees time. The key aspects of innovative onboarding programs to access a cohort of new employees will also be detailed.
Are you finding it a challenge to obtain and/or retain employees for your manufacturing business? Listen to how the City of Mississauga has worked together with its manufacturers to solve their workforce development challenges.
Doing business with Asian — and specifically Chinese — entities is now becoming a required process for companies that need to reduce their cost of productions and/or facing sales volumes they can’t afford by themselves. It’s also a huge potential market for selling specialized products that are more and more looked after by a generation of Chinese who wants the original and quality products. We will discuss the key points in doing business with Chinese entities: protecting our trademarks and IP, securing payments and contracts, building up durable relations, background checks of partners, do’s and don’ts, etc.
