2. Supplier Showcase: October 28th

Register today for our inaugural Supplier Showcase event! The schedule of sessions for this year’s Technical Skillshops hosted by CDS equipment suppliers is growing! We have 9 sponsors committed to this year’s showcase with topics and summaries being updated weekly. A few new sessions have been finalized since our last update - check them out below!

  • Basics of Vehicle Noise and Vibration – Recording, Analysis, Sound Quality, 10 AM ET
    Vehicle manufacturers realize the importance of noise and vibration to their customers. From JD Power scores to Car and Driver comparisons to warranty reduction efforts, this area is heavily developed, engineered, and investigated when making and servicing vehicles. Besides legal requirements like passby noise, there is the customer experience to consider – the sound has to be right! In a live demonstration, HEAD acoustics will present the basics of how noise and vibration is recorded and analyzed, with sound examples of different vehicles, and further investigations that OEMs and your team could take to make sure your vehicle measures up to or stands out from the rest.

  • SAE Competition Success – How Modeling and Simulation can help you win!, 10 AM ET
    Modeling and Simulation help you gain insights into your design while saving time and money! Learn how MATLAB and Simulink can help you model systems, optimize and tune designs and win! Join us to see how you can get started with Model-Based Design, MATLAB, Simulink, and application specific toolboxes like vehicle modeling, algorithm design, sensitivity analysis and mission simulations.

  • Using Mastercam to improve CNC Machining Capabilities– October 28, 11 AM ET
    In Mastercam’s live session, we’ll show you how to leverage Mastercam to efficiently program parts, visualize toolpaths, and avoid costly mistakes. Topics include basic chip cutting theory, benefits of 5-axis machining, new Mastercam 2022 features, and programming your first part in Mastercam. You’ll learn about Mastercam resources available for teams to use (Mastercam University, demo parts, software downloads, etc).

    Multimatic has brought its world-famous DSSV (Dynamic Suspensions Spool Valve) damping technology to Formula SAE. This presentation explains how interns from Canadian and British universities, partnered with Multimatic engineers, have taken this proven damping technology and redesigned it for FSAE. We will cover a range of subjects including fundamentals of dampers and suspension, an overview of DSSV technology, and a technical exploration of our FSAE DSSV damper design & development. Several FSAE teams involved during its pilot launch in 2020 implemented these DSSV dampers on their vehicles with great success. These dampers are now available for purchase in two configurations, corner and mode-decoupled suspension, for the upcoming 2022 season.

  • How you can apply Metal 3D Printing for Student Vehicle Competitions– October 28, 2 PM ET
    Are you considering cheaper and faster alternatives to machining complex parts? Want to expand your design and engineering capabilities? Don’t let traditional methods rule your imagination. We will present an overview of where metal 3D printing is today, and how Desktop Metal products can help you win!

  • Catalytic Combustion Corp.– October 28, 2 PM ET
    Catalytic Combustion Corporation (CCC) is an emission control technology company developing and manufacturing products that help remove harmful substances and noise from process exhaust. Our products range from systems to control emissions from large manufacturers and power generating operations to small catalysts that control emissions from household appliances and most every application in-between.
