See you at these 3 Important Industry Events in April and May

March 17, 2017

IRD Glass and IRD Ceramics are happy to be exhibiting at three important industry events – two of them which are free and open to the public – over the next two months. Today we will share with you:

  • What the conferences are and why to go
  • When and where
  • How to see IRD Glass or IRD Ceramics

SPIE Defense & Commercial Sensing

  • What it is

Information plays a critical role in today’s defense systems, which is why Southern California has become the nation’s hub for technological innovation in aerospace and defense. The SPIE Defense and Commercial Sensing conference will offer opportunities for information exchange, business development, vendor and project networking, and professional development.

  • When is it?

April 9-13, 2017 at the Anaheim Convention Center – Anaheim, CA

  • See IRD Glass

At booth #266, you can see IRD Glass present on precision glass tubes, optical filters, our precision sapphire components and more. We manufacture custom precision components from glass, ceramic, Sapphire and other visible and IR materials for the sensor, transducer and defense industry. With a proprietary polishing process and Zygo laser Interferometers to guarantee critical flatness, we are a sole-source supplier for companies including Honeywell, Trumpf, and Rockwell Collins.

Ceramics Expo USA

  • What it is

Technical ceramics play an increasingly important role in engineering and are helping to solve some of the most difficult challenges around the globe. An impressive range of user industries rely on ceramics’ unique sets of characteristics – from chemical, abrasion and wear resistance to ultra-hardness. Ceramics Expo USA will give “an unparalleled opportunity for the industry’s innovators, manufacturers, OEMs and suppliers to not only set out their stalls, but also to interact face-to face with the broadest possible range of users, each one a potential customer.”

  • When is it?

April 25-27, 2017 at the International Exposition Center – Cleveland, OH

  • See IRD Ceramics

IRD Ceramics will be at booth #137. With precision ceramic machining, tight process control procedures, and quality assurance techniques, we open up new avenues for a variety of user industries. We are looking forward to meeting with other ceramics innovators and electronics, aerospace, medical, security, and defense companies at Ceramics Expo USA!

Medical Sensors Design Conference

  • What it is

With its concentration of historic academic institutions, research universities, and leading hospitals, Boston is the perfect location for the Medical Sensors Design Conference. More intimate than our other two events, with exhibitions during the speaker breaks, this conference will bring together the nation’s best design engineers and OEMs to learn what the sensor technologies of today can accomplish and where these powerful components will be applied in the future.

  • When is it?

May 8-9, 2017 at the Marriot Hotel – Newton, MA

  • See IRD Glass

Though we are presenting at the Medical Sensors and Design Conference, it is a paid event and tickets were limited. If you didn’t get tickets but are located in the Boston area, just shoot us an email and we will schedule a meeting!
