Tsugami/Rem Sales, the exclusive North American importer of Precision Tsugami machine tools, will host the Precision Machined Products Association's (PMPA) first East Coast Mini-Tech Conference at its Windsor, Conn., facility on Nov. 12, 2014.

The conference targets machine shop workers in the Northeast U.S. and will include 6 hours of training, including metal cutting technology, production risk assessment based on part drawing analysis, and an interactive machining demonstration. PMPA Industry Research and Technology Director Miles Free will also explain material certification terminology.

"All of our sessions are about education," said PMPA Technical Program Director Monte Guitar, citing the organization's desire to help manufacturers resolve operational challenges and remain competitive. "When you bring folks together, they share knowledge and learn from each other."

The Mini-Tech Conference was designed to give area people a taste of what happens at PMPA's National Technical Conference, typically held in April, Guitar said. 

The event is open to the public and participants can register to attend on the PMPA website at www.pmpa.org. PMPA members can earn 0.6 PMPA CEU credits for participating. 

The PMPA also plans to hold a west coast Mini-Tech Conference at the Sandvik Coromant Productivity Center in Anaheim, Calif., Nov. 6-7.
