Chile Presentation

While working in Chile we were honored to be invited to the University of Chile in Santiago to conduct a visiting lecture to the Mechanical Engineering Department on the topic of Conveyor Components, Systems and CEMA Standards. After the lecture and Q&A session, we were able to tour the beautiful campus of the University of Chile and learn more about its rich culture and history.

At the conclusion of the visit we presented the Spanish language version of the 7th edition of the CEMA Belt Book to the head of the Engineering Department. The Belt Book is a valuable learning tool and one that we feel will benefit up and coming engineers.

A special "thank you" goes out to the professors and students who welcomed us and made us feel at home.
