The 38th North American Manufacturing Research Conference (NAMRC) had a homecoming of sorts at Queen's University (Kingston, Ontario, Canada) May 25-May 28. NAMRC 38's opening session began with a tribute to Professor William B. Rice, as well as to Erich Thomsen and John Schey, both early supporters of NAMRC and pioneers in manufacturing research, who passed away earlier this year. Next on the agenda was a keynote panel discussion titled: Connecting Manufacturing Research to Manufacturing Engineering Education. The tradition of recognizing outstanding research and individuals in manufacturing continued at NAMRC 38. The 2010 NAMRI/SME S.M. Wu Research Implementation Award honored Richard E. DeVor and Shiv G. Kapoor of the University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign) for innovative research -- beginning in the early 1980s -- on mechanistic simulation models for machining processes. Researchers from the Manufacturing Systems Research Laboratory, General Motors R&D presented a paper titled Development of Gun-Drilling MQL Process and Tooling for Machining of Compacted Graphite Iron.
