Wednesday, April 14, 2010
The President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) has launched a website to gather public opinion on the future of advanced manufacturing. Join the conversation at http://pcast.ideascale.com
PCAST is an advisory group of the nation's leading scientists and engineers, appointed by the President to augment the science and technology advice available to him from inside the White House and from cabinet departments and other federal agencies. At its new advanced manufacturing website, PCAST posts a series of questions regarding the future of public-private partnerships, funding, international benchmarking and other critical topics that could best be answered with the help of public input. Input will be accepted through Tuesday, April 20, 2010.

Stamper Adds Rapid Prototyping to its Resume
Thursday, April 08, 2010
Full-service metal stamper PTM Corp., Fair Haven, MI, has acquired a rapid-prototype machine for design and development projects. Its new fused-deposition-modeling (FDM) unit will allow PTM engineers to explore ways to reduce production costs without compromising quality, say company officials. FDM product models are fabricated from production-grade thermoplastic that can be drilled, tapped, sanded and painted without waiting for curing—ideal for use as prototype parts as well as for molds, patterns and even custom tools and fixtures.
