John Marshall, director of engineering at PCC Aerospace, will present on relevant applications of Production Module within Industry 4.0.

Rob Ivester, deputy director at the U.S. Department of Energy, will present on energy and manufacturing in America.

Frank Pfefferkorn, associate professor, and Sinan Kesriklioglu, Ph.D. student at University of Wisconsin-Madison, will present on tool-chip interface temperature measurement with thermocouple fabricated directly on the rake face.

Jarred Heigel, mechanical engineer at NIST, will present on hybrid manufacturing.

TWS Users Conference attendees will also have the opportunity to watch the drivers practicing for the Indy 500 during the offsite networking reception on May 17 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
