Ag Engineering Conference In Waterloo

Posted on April 26, 2013

Registration is still open for the annual  Agricultural Machinery Conference (AMC) being held May 6-8 in Waterloo, Ia. For 28 years, AMC has given agricultural equipment engineers an opportunity to network and learn about the latest technology through its continuing education seminars, technical sessions and trade show.

The conference begins May 6 with four continuing education seminars intended to provide more insight into J1939 as well as ISO11783. Additional sessions will cover metal casting as well as agricultural tire design and applications. Greg Peterson, aka “Machinery Pete,” is the keynote speaker during a kick-off event held at Antique Acres in Cedar Falls on the opening evening.

Technical sessions May 7 and 8 include subjects such as noise and vibration, automation and wireless technology in agriculture, simulation, new products, Tier 4 engines and alternative fuel technology.

The keynote luncheon speaker on May 7 is Brian Mormino, executive director, Environmental Strategy and Compliance for Cummins. Dr. Jim Budzynski, managing principal for MacroGain Partners, will talk about the “Technology Platform Convergence in Ag” as the keynote on May 8.

More than 50 suppliers have registered for the trade show, displaying new components and equipment.

AMC is organized by volunteers who work in the farm equipment industry. Proceeds from the conference are used to help support and fund the operations of the ASABE Iowa Section, ASABE Quad City Section and the SAE Mississippi Valley Section.
