Advanced CE Marking

Is your company placing machinery in the European Union and CE marking it as required by the Machinery Directive? In previous years, the AEM seminar has included a session on understanding the basics of the European Union’s Machinery Directive and CE marking. This year’s CE session is aimed at taking a deeper look into the Machinery Directive and studying the problems and issues that can confront a manufacturer that is well versed on the Directive and believes everything is in order. Discussions will include what your company’s first response should be if a national authority alleges that your product is out of compliance; Whose name can be put on the EC Declaration of Conformity if you have no facilities in the EU; What to do if a product does not comply with a CEN standard; How to decide if this EHSR applies to your product. This session will also summarize what you can expect your dealer in Europe to cover as well as what your experimental and prototype equipment needs in order to run in Europe.
Using Technology to Communicate or Improve Safety
July 18, 2013
Jake Gaylord, Almon Inc.
Manufacturers look to technology to increase profit margins, improve productivity, and differentiate their product from the competition. As these advanced designs are rushed to market, the vital information needed to support this innovation is often antiquated. The resulting information vacuum can have serious consequences for both end users and manufacturers. Utilizing new advances in animation and interactive applications on various platforms (including PC, iOS, and Android) affords manufacturers the infrastructure to communicate and educate multiple demographics, using the very devices they use on a daily basis. Join us as we explore the use of animation and interactive programming to create multi-platform solutions that improve accessibility and learning retention, while reducing costs associated with educating a diverse global audience. If a picture is worth one thousand words, animations could be priceless.
