Keynote Speaker Ed Linhart Presents Development of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter at HxGN LOCAL Aerospace Summit
Presentation explores the high-profile F-35 program from design to assembly line06 October 2017
Mr. Linhart steered the high-profile F-35 program from design to flight test to an assembly line — achieving a production rate of one aircraft per day. Prior to this period, he was a consultant to small and large companies from 2001 to 2003, including Lockheed Martin where he headed an Engineering Blue team that worked to get the F-22 back into production. Linhart has won numerous awards and worked on many aerospace programs from design to production, including the F-22, over his 40-year career. Linhart holds a Bachelor's degree in Industrial Technology, and a Master's Degree from California State University at Long Beach.
Immediately following the keynote presentation, the program agenda includes knowledge sessions covering composite inspection and repair, closed-loop manufacturing, and how to use 7DoF to engineer intelligent manufacturing cells. Also planned is a special session on shaping automation and HxGN SMART Quality for aerospace applications. In the afternoon, attendees will have access to a wide range of live measurement solution demonstrations including state-of-the-art portable arms, scanners, and laser trackers. Technology experts from Hexagon and NIAR will be on hand to discuss smart quality, reverse engineering, robotics and automation, and other aerospace related issues.
