Student Tour to Anter Corporation – A Big Success
The ACerS PCSA student tour to Anter Corporation at MS&T’09 was a huge success! The trip took place on Monday, October 26. Due to the large number of interested students, two bus trips (and two tour groups) were used to tour the facilities at Anter. Approximately 30 students (both graduate and undergraduate) participated from about 9 different universities, including University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Rutgers University, Clemson, Penn State, and many others.
Anter Corporation is a manufacturer of dilatometers for thermal expansion (CTE) measurements. Anter also manufactures and tests thermal conductivity meters, thermal diffusivity systems, and specific heat capacity measuring instruments. Students who attended the tour had the opportunity to see a variety of Anter’s products in a laboratory setting and see their use in characterizing many different types of materials.
Anter employess also gave students an “inside-look” on how different products are fixed and/or modified depending on the specific device needs of a customer.
