Registration Open for MCMA Technical Conference

Oct. 11–13, 2016, in New Orleans

Published: Wednesday, June 29, 2016 - 16:10

(MCMA: Ann Arbor, MI) -- The Motion Control and Motor Association (MCMA), the global trade association for the motion control and motor industry, recently announced that online registration is open for the annual Technical Conference (TechCon), which will be held October 11–13, 2016, in New Orleans.

MCMA’s TechCon is an educational conference focused on the needs of users of motion control and motor technologies. New in 2016, the conference includes MCMA’s Certified Motion Control Professional training. Additionally, the conference features more than 30 educational sessions in three distinct tracks, including motors and related technologies; motion control, drives, and related technologies; and networks and software tools for engineers. All of these taught by industry leading professionals.

TechCon includes an exhibition showcasing the latest products, technologies, and trends in motion control and motors.

“Engineers, system integrators, machine builders, and end users meet once a year at TechCon to keep their skills up-to-date and to help their companies be more productive,” says Dana Whalls, MCMA’s vice president. “There is a lot packed into three days at TechCon, but technology is changing quickly and attendees want to stay ahead of it, plus they find it a valuable and enjoyable experience.”

The MCMA Certified Motion Control Professional training is being taught for the first time at TechCon. Attendees of this training will be able to get certified after a one-day, hands-on workshop and exam slated for April 5, 2017 during MCMA’s Automate trade show in Chicago.
