People interested in robotics often eagerly read magazines and blogs to stay up to date on the latest developments. It’s helpful to do those things since reading expands knowledge. However, it’s an entirely different experience to see new robotic technologies in action by attending a specialty event.
According to the 2017 Infrastructure Report Card published by the American Society of Civil Engineers, U.S. bridges are continuing to deteriorate in condition, with many elements approaching the end of their service life, receiving a “D+” grade. As a result, the Federal Highway Administration estimates that nearly 25 percent of the nation’s bridges require repair and replacement. Consequently, demand for industry services will increase as governments are left with no choice but to attempt to improve their bridges and elevated highways. Recent advances in forging technology help to address the structurally deficient or functionally obsolete challenges faced within the US infrastructure industry. Our aim with this presentation would be to provide a better understanding of today’s forging technology as it relates to heavy movable structures and gearing.
