(Nov. 3, 2010)--The UTSA Center for Advanced Manufacturing and Lean Systems (CAMLS) invites the business community to the third annual Meeting and Industry Advisory Council event from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Friday, Nov. 12 at the UTSA Main Campus. Registration is required to attend the free event, where visitors can meet the center's faculty, staff and graduate assistants and take a peek at its manufacturing technologies and lean-system methodologies and tools.

CAMLS was founded in 2007 to address the growing needs of industries in San Antonio and South Texas as an interdisciplinary organization to conduct research and development, education and training in lean manufacturing and six-sigma, supply chain and logistics engineering, warehouse systems, automation technologies, and advanced sensors and robotics.

"The Center for Advanced Manufacturing and Lean Systems aims to help businesses become fully competitive manufacturers by integrating technologies and improving processes and operations to strengthen their bottom line," said Frank Chen, CAMLS director and UTSA Luther Brown Distinguished Chair of Manufacturing. "We invite the business community to meet our faculty, staff and students, and talk about their businesses challenges and goals at our Nov. 12 open house. It will be a great opportunity to observe our center in action."

The CAMLS meeting will include a keynote address by Bob McCullough, H-E-B senior vice president of manufacturing ("H-E-B's Lean Journey") and a keynote address by Bruce Miller, president and CEO of Port San Antonio ("Port San Antonio's Growth and Manufacturing Tenants").

>> Although the CAMLS meeting is free and open to the public, reservations are required by Nov. 5. Reserve a seat at camls.utsa.edu/IAC_2010.htm. For more information, contact Nancy Miller at 210-458-6773.

 

 

Did You Know?

Sometimes you have to see the little picture

UTSA researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.

That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.

Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
