MAGNETICS Magazine is pleased to announce workshops beyond those held in conjunction of our annual conference.
Magnetics Bootcamps: Basic and Advanced
Dr. Stan Trout, Spontaneous Materials
Stanís 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.

The Magnetics Bootcamps focus on teaching the basics of Magnetics with an emphasis on permanent magnets. If you need to understand magnets better for your job or are new to the field, the Basic Bootcamp I is the perfect place to start. Assumes that one has little or no background in magnetics. The Bootcamp I workshop will cover the essential fundamental magnetic concepts such as hysteresis, the nature of magnetism, units, basic magnet processing, magnetizing and thermal effects.
If something more advanced is what you are looking for, attend Bootcamp II. Assumes someone has either taken a previous Bootcamp, (Bootcamp I), or has some technical understanding of magnetics. After a brief review of the basics, covered topics include self-demagnetization and loadlines, rare earth raw materials and their pricing, advanced processing techniques, manufacturability, design basics, case studies and whatís new on the horizon.
