El día 19 de marzo a las 13 h. se inaugura en el edificio Agustín de Betancourt de la Escuela de Ingeniería y Arquitectura de la Universidad de Zaragoza el Espacio de la Tecnología “Leonardo da Vinci-Torres Leza”. Este espacio expositivo nace con una misión dual: por una parte servir de homenaje “in memoriam” a la figura del catedrático emérito del área de Ingeniería de los Procesos de Fabricación de la Universidad de Zaragoza Fernando Torres Leza (1947-2016), primer presidente de nuestra Sociedad de Ingeniería de Fabricación (2004-2007) y Premio de la SIF de 2014, y por otra parte, aprovechar su tarea de divulgación científico-técnica, en particular dedicada a Leonardo da Vinci; para presentar de una forma atractiva contenidos de ingeniería industrial a estudiantes del centro y público en general.
La exposición presenta un recorrido por las distintas facetas de la figura de Leonardo da Vinci utilizando una metodología denominada Sistema Integrado de Categorías Universales; desarrollada por el profesor Torres. Una pantalla interactiva presenta ideas, escritos, obras y otros aspectos de Leonardo clasificados según estas categorías para proporcionar un perfil “universal” del personaje. Entre sus obras ocupan un lugar muy relevante los desarrollos como Ingeniero de sistemas mecánicos. Por este motivo el profesor Torres proyectó catorce cuidadas maquetas funcionales de una selección de estos sistemas extraída del Códice Madrid I, de las que también se puede disfrutar en este espacio expositivo. La exposición presenta contenido interactivo relativo a cada una de las maquetas; incluyendo su descripción por Leonardo, diagrama de bloques, animación, aplicaciones posibles y vídeo de su funcionamiento.

The “Leonardo da Vinci-Torres Leza“ Technology Space has been inaugurated in the Agustín de Betancourt building of the Engineering and Architecture School at the Zaragoza University on March 19th. This exhibition space is born with the mission of serve as a tribute “in memoriam“ the professor emeritus Ph.D. Fernando Torres Leza (1947-2016), first president of our Manufacturing Engineering Society (2004-2007) and Manufacturing Processes professor . Also, to take advantage of its task of scientific and technical dissemination, in particular dedicated to Leonardo da Vinci.
An interactive screen presents ideas, writings, works and other aspects of Leonardo classified according to these categories to provide a “universal” profile of the character. Among his works occupy a very important place the developments as Engineer of mechanical systems. For this reason, Professor Torres projected fourteen functional models of a selection of these systems extracted from the Madrid I Codex, which can also be enjoyed in this exhibition space. The exhibition presents interactive content related to each of the models; including its description by Leonardo, block diagram, animation, possible applications and video of its operation.
On October 5th, the collaboration agreement signature has proceeded between the Spanish Society for the Defense of the Geological and Mining Legacy (SEDPGYM) and the Manufacturing Engineering Society. It’s a Manufacturing Legacy Industrial Group (PATRIF) proposal. This agreement aims to consolidate cooperation between the Societies in the conference development, seminars, training courses and other dissemination actions. Another goal will be the synergistic enhancing effect resulting from the common pursuit objectives in areas such as the Technological Legacy Both SEDPGYM and PATRIF will develop. Will be activities aimed at the preservation and improvement of the Spanish technological heritage. The special focus will be on the first of them in mining assets and elements and the second in those of the industrial sphere.
The agreement signature protocol, carried out by Antonio Pizarro Rosilla (President of the SEDPGYM), and Lorenzo Sevilla Hurtado, (Vice President of the SIF), was held on the X International Congress Mining and Historical Metallurgy in the European SW. (Molina de Aragón ,Guadalajara).
On this act, Prof. Miguel Ángel Sebastián Pérez (Coordinator of the GT-SIF PATRIF), expressed specials thanks both companies for the agreement welcome and collaboration development. Also, he expressed their conviction in the interest and opportunity of its celebration. He highlighted the parallels between SIF and SEDPGYM origins existing. After making a presentation of the SIF and its main activities. Each of benefits has involved identity reinforcement implementation actions and acting areas improvement. Also, we are agree on the opportunity to establish collaborating ways on common issues.

International Machine Tool Exhibition was held from 28th of May to 1st of June of 2018.
Within activities program has been given the AFM mention to the best End of Studies Project awarded by the SIF related to the machine-tool sector. That has fallen to Mr. Rodrigo Alonso Pérez Úbeda, Polytechnic University of Valencia student for his project “Design and manufacture of a low-cost personalized torque sensor”.
The mention has been collected by the SIF president due to problems of the winner’s dates.
The “call for papers” of “Special Issue of the Manufacturing Engineering Society (MES)” has been published in Materials Journal, which you can access through the following link:
There, all the information about the number appears, including the authors instructions and the submitting papers deadline (July 1, 2018).
