An upcoming Magnetics Bootcamp will be a closing event of TWST Events’ Magnetics 2019 Conference on January 24, 2019. The conference venue is the DoubleTree Hotel, 5700 Major Blvd., Orlando, Florida. MAGNETICS 2019 is a two-day conference focused on the latest economic developments and technical advancements in magnetics markets and technologies bringing together worldwide magnetics experts. This is a once-a-year opportunity for professionals involved in magnetics technologies to learn the latest advancements in magnetic applications, technology and materials as well as global issues of supply, demand and pricing of magnetic materials.
The bootcamp focuses on teaching the basics of magnetics with an emphasis on permanent magnets. If you need to understand magnets better for your job, want to understand the conference presentations, or are new to the field, the Magnetics Bootcamp is the place to start. It assumes that one has little or no background in magnetics. The Bootcamp will cover all the essential fundamental magnetic concepts such as hysteresis, the nature of magnetism, units, magnet processing, thermal effects, magnetizing, self-demagnetization, measurements and case studies.
The bootcamp is taught by Stan Trout. Stan’s professional life, just over forty years, has been almost evenly divided between the permanent magnet and rare earth industries. For the last sixteen years, he has run a consultancy called Spontaneous Materials, serving clients in these industries on a wide variety of technical and commercial projects. His previous employers include Molycorp, Magnequench, Hitachi Magnetics, Crucible Magnetics and Recoma. Dr. Trout is a registered professional engineer, in Pennsylvania and Colorado, holds a B. S. in Physics from Lafayette College and a Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in Metallurgy and Materials Science. He is a member of the MCMA, the UK Magnetics Society and a life senior member of the IEEE Magnetics Society.
