Fall, 2014

Please consider attending the Manufacturing Forum:  You are the talent spoken of!!!

In addition to the companies listed, we are inviting a number of practicing manufacturing engineers and WIT alumni that are in the field.  It’s a good opportunity to network, get insight into career offerings in manufacturing, and hear from industry leaders.

It’s EPIC:  UniGraphics NX Comes to Wentworth

GE Aviation, Lynn MA has donated 36 seats of UniGraphics through the Siemens PLM Academic Program.  This includes both CAM and CAE software.  Joe Bourgeois, HR director at the GE Lynn facility, has made all the arrangements, and will be once again coordinating our EPIC project this fall along with our co-op administrator, Bridget Aurilio.

 

Beginning in September the SME section will be offering UG training to students enrolled in either the manufacturing concentration in the inter-disciplinary program, or signed into the manufacturing minor. Click the link to the right for more details on UG capabilities.

 

 

 

There is an increasing demand for manufacturing part programmers and manufacturing engineers.  This UG training is intended to give our students a “leg-up” on co-op opportunities at larger manufacturing corporations such as GE, SpaceX, Raytheon, Boeing, Wyman-Gordon, etc.  If you are interested in participating in a project-based challenge that utilizes UniGraphics as the modeler, please join our kick-off meeting in early September.  Watch this space for further details.

 

Factory Tour:

28 SME students in the Manufacturing Engineering course, along with 11 EE students toured the Methods Machine Tool Open House.  We got to visit with many of our past graduates, including Brittany Speroni, BMET, 2012, who is featured in this month’s alumni magazine.  She took a great “robo-cam” video of her latest robotic cell application.  It is on the manufacturing drive, and worth watching.  Following is a blurb taken from the press release by MMT:

Metal Storm 2014 featured over 50 machines under power, including 15 new systems that were rolled out, some of them making their North American debut at the event. Attendees saw live demonstrations on machines such as the new YASDA Precision Machining Centers, new KIWA-Japan Horizontal Machining Centers, Nakamura-Tome Multitasking Turning Centers, FEELER High Performance Milling and Turning Centers, FANUC RoboDrill 5-Axis Vertical Machining Centers, FANUC Wire EDM Machines, Current EDM Drilling Machines and Vision-Gauge Digital Optical Comparators.

 

 

 

Spring, 2014 Activities:

 

EPIC-GE Project

Students from SME joined in the competition with seniors taking the Manufacturing Engineering course to improve the manufacturing processes used in the production of a vital (and very challenging) GE-Aviation jet engine component.  Those that competed were then treated to an extensive tour of the GE assembly plant and Museum in Lynn, MA.  Please check out the full article in the News@WIT publication.

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.
