Makino is pleased to announce a special two-day event that is going to focus specifically on the manufacturing of components for the jet engine and turbine segments of the aerospace and energy industries. New Technologies for Jet Engine and Turbine Manufacturing is slated to take place April 16 and 17 at Makino’s Mason, Ohio, technology center.
“The focus of this event will be on the latest and most innovative manufacturing methods that directly enhance productivity, throughput, quality and overall bottom line,” said Mark Rentschler, marketing manager at Makino. “Technical presentations and live cutting demonstrations will take place on both days and will address the production challenges faced by jet engine and turbine manufacturers as they machine complex precision parts.
“Special guest Adam Steltzner of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, Calif., is the featured speaker at the April 16 dinner. As phase lead and development manager for EDL (entry, descent and landing), Steltzner designed, tested and built the sky-crane landing system for the Curiosity rover, which successfully landed on Mars Aug. 5, 2012.
The event is free and includes complimentary accommodations at the Cincinnati Marriott Northeast. Registration is required and can be completed by calling Cindy Enger at 513-573-7360, or by going online to www.makino.com/aero-engine.
