More details and contact information for attending these events are provided below.

Debut of a special-interest exhibition and a conference, SPS Electric Automation America , is set for May 24-26, 2005 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont (Chicago), IL. The exhibition will cover electric automation and motion control technology from systems to components, while the conference, which runs May 23-26, will offer comprehensive treatment of automation, machine control, and motion control technologies. User-oriented sessions are intended for engineers in science and industry seeking solutions to their projects.

Bosch Rexroth Corp . offers numerous electric drives and controls training courses ranging from digital servo drives and systems to transfer-line control to general automation and maintenance/troubleshooting of various hardware systems. A partial list of classes to be given at the company’s facilities in Illinois and Michigan includes:

  • HDD/HDS Digital Servo Drive with HVE/HVR Power Supply (Apr. 19-21, 2005)

  • DKC Single Axis Digital Servo Drive (Apr. 12-13, Jun. 7-8)

  • Visual Motion 9 System Basics (Apr. 12-14; May 24-26)

  • Trans01-D Transfer Line Control (May 10-12)

  • MTC200 Maintenance and Troubleshooting Version 23 (Apr. 25-29)

  • Win PLC for MTC200 Version 23 (May 24-26).

A full list of drives and controls classes, plus training classes in hydraulics topics at different locations, is available at the Bosch Rexroth Web site .

The 14th annual Oriental Motor Fair & Seminar consists of free technical and application sessions, workshops, product exhibits, demos, and “one-on-one” with company engineers.
