1 Dont Blink (December 2015)

Sometimes I feel like I blink and another year is gone. By the time most of you read this, it will be at or near the end of 2015. If you’re like us, you’ll be reflecting on the past year and looking forward to the next.

2 Pack Expo 2016 (October 2016)

Pack Expo takes place November 6-9 at McCormick Place in Chicago. With 2,100 exhibitors, it’s the world’s largest most comprehensive processing and packaging trade show in 2016.

3 Plan Accordingly (April 2016)

Three upcoming shows cater to different areas of power transmission components and motion control technologies, including Windpower 2016, Powdermet 2016 and the Sensors Expo & Conference. All three exhibitions will offer the latest products, solutions and latest real world applications dedicated to wind energy, powder metal technologies and sensors. Here’s a quick rundown:

4 IMTS 2016 Booth Preview (August 2016)

A nose-in-the-tent peek at the booths featuring mechanical motion components.

5 2016 PTE Buyers Guide (December 2016)

A comprehensive directory of suppliers of gears, bearings, motors, couplings and other mechanical power transmission and motion control components.

6 Engineering Showcase 2016 (March 2016)

One of our goals at Power Transmission Engineering is to help you understand, identify and select the best technology for your mechanical power transmission or motion control applications. With every project, you have to decide which components to use, and which suppliers, based on functionality, quality and price. We aim to help you make those decisions informed by providing the latest information on current technology, especially when it comes to mechanical components.

7 2016 Motion, Drive & Automation Show Everybody Loves US (August 2016)

The U.S. is a very attractive market for international firms with manufacturing solutions, and we see that trend continuing. This year (Hannover Fairs USA has) secured a tremendous amount of interest from international exhibitors and attendees, which demonstrate growing interest in the U.S. manufacturing sector.

8 MDA, IANA and IMTS 2016 (August 2016)

Where to find the gearboxes, bearings, couplings and other components.

9 Mind Sport (September 2016)

Here’s what we know about Tremont, Illinois: It’s a small village in Tazewell County, (population 2,400+), holds an annual summer turkey festival (quite popular) and the courthouse is a famous historic site where politician James Shields challenged an “up-and-coming” lawyer named Abraham Lincoln to a duel with cavalry broad swords (they showed up, but the duel never materialized). In 2016, you can add FIRST Robotics Competition World Champion to the village’s rather eccentric list of accomplishments.

10 Automatic for the People (April 2016)

The world is full-on automated. From our factories to our vehicles to our leisurely activities, the future is now and it’s nothing but algorithms, robotics and hands-free operation. It comes as no surprise that a 2016 Google search brings a fair amount of technology gone awry. The following examples don’t scare us (they’re actually quite fascinating) but they probably should worry us a little bit…
