Free Aluminum Seminars for Designers

Norway-based Hydro’s Extrusion’s Americas unit will expand its educational program to include nearly 20 complimentary seminars in 2010 throughout North America. Hydro’s Extrusion Academies are half-day technical workshops specifically targeted to industrial product designers and engineers, but also appropriate for anyone concerned with extrusion fabrication and manufacturing.

The scheduled Extrusion Academies will provide practical instruction on the use of aluminum extrusion in product development, including the extrusion process itself, profile design and alloy selection.

    Three of the parts in that photo (the two shallowest and the second deepest — you can see the similarities) are from retractable awnings, which is the field where I got my first engineering job.

    Small world, I guess.
