Extrusion Design University Event May 14-16



The Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC) will host its first Extrusion Design University event, EDU '18, Monday, May 14 through Wednesday, May 16, 2018, at the Chicago Marriott O'Hare in Chicago, IL.

Like other AEC educational events, these classes will be submitted for continuing education units (CEUs) and likely will be eligible for engineering professional development hour (PDH) credits.

EDU '18 will connect aluminum extrusion industry experts who understand extrusion design and production processes with design and engineering professionals who are interested in enhancing their understanding and knowledge of aluminum extrusion design, applications and technology. The sessions at EDU will cover topics from alloys and applications to finishing and fabrication and are geared towards both novices and veterans. Sessions are divided into tracks covering applications that include automotive, architecture and engineered products/industrial.

One track, "Taste of ET," will feature the best papers from the 11th International Aluminum Extrusion Technology Seminar (ET '16).

Participants may attend an added workshop before or after the conference. On Monday, May 14, "Determining the Strength of Aluminum Extruded Members" will be taught by Randy Kissell. Kissell will discuss the advantages of designing with aluminum extrusions, its challenges and how designers can exploit its versatility.

From the Business Excellence program, AEC will be hosting Extrusion Excellence: Applied Fundamentals for Aluminum Extruders, led by Dr. Wojciech Z. Misiolek, Director of the Loewy Institute at Lehigh University. The one-day course covers the engineering fundamentals of the extrusion process, from billet production through the press to the runout table. The course is open to AEC members and nonmembers.

The Anodizing Essentials Workshop - Level 1, part of the "school for anodizers" produced by the Aluminum Anodizers Council, will be offered. This one-day program for anodizers teaches the fundamentals and foundation of quality anodizing, taking the learner through the entire process.

EDU will feature an opening night reception and networking event. During EDU an exhibit hall will feature extruders and their suppliers displaying the latest products and services.

At the end of the conference, delegates have an option to include a tour of the Custom Aluminum Products extrusion plant in Genoa, IL. The tour will give participants an opportunity to obtain a first-hand understanding of the aluminum extrusion process from "billet to box." The tour is included as part of EDU '18 but additional registration is required.
