Additive Manufacturing Conference
AWS
Thursday, November 13, 2014
8:00 a.m.-4:45 p.m.
FABTECH Show — Georgia World Congress Center — Room C205
Atlanta, GA

Additive manufacturing represents the realization of the ideal of "on-demand manufacturing." Without molds or dies, additive manufacturing enables production of parts and prototypes on demand. Design improvements can be made and tested rapidly without tooling and machining constraints.

Come and learn from the experts about additive manufacturing processes such as powder bed fusion, material extrusion, directed energy deposition, material jetting, and more.

Millions of new jobs, if you have the training and know where to look
USA Today
Joseph Poole will make more than $100,000 in wages and overtime by the end of the year. The 21-year-old works in what looks like NASA's mission control, monitoring the manufacturing process at Chevron Phillips petrochemical plant in Houston. Poole didn't get the job with the engineering degree he originally considered. Instead, Poole landed it with a two-year course at a local community college. By 2017, an estimated 2.5 million new, middle-skill jobs like Poole's are expected to be added to the workforce, accounting for nearly 40 percent of all job growth, according to a USA Today analysis of local data from Economic Modeling Specialists International and CareerBuilder.

Welding class starts past midnight at Virginia community college
The Virginian-Pilot
Four students who signed up for a fall welding class at Tidewater Community College arrived just after noon on the first day, ready to get to work. That's when they realized what they hadn't noticed about the starting time: It was 12:30, all right — 12:30 a.m. But for the other eight students who enrolled, this course in the dead of night turned out to be the best way — maybe the only way — to keep building their skills while juggling the other responsibilities in their busy lives.

Ohio welder creates sculpture for Habitat for Humanity
Cleveland.com
When Habitat for Humanity asked Berea, Ohio, artist Bonnie Forrest to create a sculpture for its ReStore in Cleveland, she launched into her largest project yet. A banker with US Bank in Strongsville, Forrest learned welding a few years ago to create sculptures for friends and neighbors. Most of the work was small — wind chimes, art pieces as knickknacks. She also dabbled in pottery and stained glass mosaics.
