SME Annual Conference: Baltimore 2013

Renaissance Harborplace Hotel

From June2-4, William Powers and Ajai Depina attended the first SME conference for Wentworth. Over three days they went to various talks and presentations regarding manufacturing and its future in the world, while also meeting many contacts in their respective parts of the industry. Previously referred to as “Society of Manufacturing Engineering”, the organization changed its name to just “SME”. The vision, mission, and purpose statements were also changed to guide SME in a better and more relevant direction. All of these alterations were done to adapt to the fast paced and changing world we live in. Please visit sme.org to see the changes and what the new SME is all about.



Open House, Thursday, March 28th

at The Manufacturing Center, Williston Hall

Open from noon until 5:00pm

All faculty, staff and guests are invited to drop by the new facility to check out the equipment and processes available to all students in all curriculums.  SME Student Chapter members will be at the various machines with demonstration parts.  You can see part process simulations, machining centers, rapid prototyping, and welding.  There will even be a metal pour in the foundry at 3:00pm (space limited).

A special invitation is extended to all local SME members.  We hope to see visitors from the Boston Senior Chapter, and students from the Boston University Student Chapter.


Spring, 2013 Activities

Please attend the first meeting: Monday, January 14th at 4:00pm in the Manufacturing Center. An agenda item will be programming.  Here are a couple of ideas:

·         Student Open Lab Day:  Invite students that did not get a chance as freshman to participate in foundry or welding activities to come into the lab and try their hand at it.

·         Faculty/Staff Open House: many have not yet seen the new facility.  I’d like to have a SME member stationed at every machine with a demonstration available for those interested in what is going on in our new digs.

·         Design contest for the plasma cutter.  This equipment is much underutilized.  I am hoping that by showcasing it’s abilities we can get it into the curriculum.

Please mark your calendars for the day.


Fall, 2012 Activities


Factory Five Plant Tour:  November 10th.  This has limited space (14 seats).  Please RSVP through the SME/OrgSynch link.  Thank you to William Powers for putting this together.



This factory has extensive automated systems and robotics involved in their manufacturing processes.  If you like manufacturing and cars, here is the perfect place to see both.
