The European Society for Precision Engineering and Nanotechnology (euspen) continues to cement its status as the most proactive and prominent society in the vibrant precision engineering sector in Europe, and plans are well advanced for the 18th in its series of Annual conferences and exhibitions, this year to be held in Venice, Italy 4-8 June.
Cranfield University are delighted to take over the organisation of the fifth edition of the ECNF in 2018, after the successful edition in Bilbao in 2016, and host this 3-day conference in the U.K. for the first time. Recently, U.K. government representatives stated that although the country is leaving the EU, it is not leaving Europe.
Frank de Groot, senior engineer at Tegema, has been awarded the Bronze ECP2 certificate. He achieved this by following a number of courses that have been certified in the ECP2 programme: the European certified precision engineering course program. ECP2 is a collaboration between the European and the Dutch Association for precision engineering, euspen and DSPE,
First Belgian winner of Dutch design engineering award At the seventeenth edition of the Precision Fair, held on 15 and 16 November in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, DSPE (Dutch Society for Precision Engineering) presented the Wim van der Hoek Award, also known as the Constructors Award, to Sam Peerlinck (KU Leuven, Belgium). Out of nine nominees,
euspen (The European Society for Precision Engineering and Nanotechnology) has announced a joint conference on Thermal Issues in Machine Tools with CRC/TR 96, March 21-23 2018 in Dresden, Germany. As the scale of manufacturing gets smaller, factors that at the macro scale are of no or limited importance become critical. One such is the effect
Time is running out to register for the up-coming Special Interest Group (SIG) focussed on Micro and Nano Manufacturing, hosted by euspen at Strathclyde University. The word “dynamic” could have been invented for the area of micro and nano manufacturing. It seems as if every day there are advances in fabricating technologies and giant strides
Thermal issues have significant effects in many manufacturing scenarios, but become exacerbated and disproportionately important as the focus intensifies on precision and micro applications. Thermal issues in precision machine tools can have a great influence on machining accuracy, and thermal performance of machine tools must be improved to address this issue. This has now become
Additive manufacturing (AM) continues to provoke huge discussion as it fundamentally questions preconceptions about the future of manufacturing. AM is no longer just a prototyping technology, and much of the focus today is on its transition to a viable and cost-effective direct manufacturing technology. With this transition comes an array of considerations that must be
Discover the drivers, challenges and successes of miniaturisation in modern motion system design. This free event is being held at Renishaw Innovation Centre on September 12th, 2017. Discover the drivers, challenges and successes of miniaturization in modern motion system design. As the world strives to reach new levels of productivity, it's not just the need for speed that is driving
The word “dynamic” could have been invented for the area of micro and nano manufacturing. It seems as if every day there are advances in fabricating technologies and giant strides in the sophistication of metrology and supporting technologies vital when manufacturing parts or features at such small scale. euspen (the European Society for Precision Engineering
