Armed with insight as to what our attendees want to see, TRAM will be returning to Chicago in 2014, once again co-located
with the International Manufacturing and Technology Show.
TRAM ’14 will examine the implications of trends focusing on these key areas:
Advanced Machining Processes to produce more complex parts for the latest
designs in aircraft structures and engines, as well as other industries that can
benefit from similar machining processes. The conference will examine the impact
of these processes and techniques.
Advanced Manufacturing Technologies have been introduced and traditional
methods have been improved. The conference will consider the effectiveness and benefits of using new and developing
Advanced Materials are being used, including composites and titanium alloys,
which produce lighter, stronger structures. Aircraft engines are using materials
that enable them to work at higher operating temperatures, increasing their efficiency
and operating performance. The conference will examine the impact of these materials
and the new manufacturing technologies being developed.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Interested in learning new technologies in advanced manufacturing?
The conference is for manufacturing business leaders, managers, engineers—anyone
who leads or plays a key role in a machining and manufacturing facility that serves
the aerospace sector. Sponsored by leaders in the industry, the conference will
cover the machining of new, difficult to machine materials, advanced manufacturing
methods and will give you a glimpse into the future to put you ahead of your competition.
