  • ASME Milwaukee - September 2019 Event

    The ASME Milwaukee section recently toured SSI Technologies, LLC of Janesville on September 10, 2019. SSI Technologies, LLC, an Amphenol Company, is a market leader in the design and development of new and emerging custom sensor technologies. These include the highest quality, most reliable, made in the USA pressure sensors, level and magnetic sensors, digital pressure gauges and digital level gauges as well as ultrasonic level and quality sensors for use in a wide variety of markets and applications.

    Kim Emerson, General Manager of SSI Technologies, LLC – Palmer Division, gave a brief overview of the company and its products. The group then broke up to tour the various manufacturing facilities and Metrology lab. Stations were set up in the plant where excellent tour guides gave detailed descriptions of the manufacturing processes used to make and test their products.

    Larry Miley presents Kim Emerson with a certificate of appreciation for hosting the SSI tour.

  • "The Magnificent Machines of Milwaukee"

    The Grohmann Museum is hosting an exhibit entitled, ‘The Magnificent Machines of Milwaukee' , from September 6th through Dec. 22nd, 2019.  Tom Ferhring, ASME history and heritage chairman, has been working the last 9 months as guest curator on the effort.  The museum director indicates that this exhibit is the most aggressive endeavor they have attempted. In addition to displays by 30+ companies featured in the book, there is also a special edition of the book to accompany the exhibit, and the Grohmann museum has ordered over 200 copies.

     The exhibit will be open free of charge during the ‘Gallery Day and Night’ event this quarter, and I believe that same weekend the Nash auto club will be hosting an event adjacent to the museum. We’re thinking of having a ‘type-in’ at some point, to draw attention to the significance of the development of the typewriter by Christopher Latham Sholes.

    Make plans now to see this exciting and creative exhibit.
