The speakers at the April 26 High-Tech Consortium [HTC] meeting will be Dr. Delia Valles-Rosales and Jesus Wong who will discuss Mold Design, Analysis and Simulation of the Cooling System at the Injection Process.
Injection molding is an important industry in southern New Mexico and far west Texas. A new material type, wood-plastic composites (WPCs) – also known as natural fiber plastic composites or natural fiber reinforced plastics – are composite materials comprised mainly of a mixture of wood fibers and plastics, as well as small amounts of additives to enhance the composite material. One of the biggest challenges researchers face is facing is the design of molds to accommodate the composite material. In this presentation, work in the Department of Industrial Engineering, New Mexico State University to develop better mold designs for these new materials will be presented.
HTC membership meetings are open to the public. FREE TO ATTEND, is being held at the Arrowhead Center on the NMSU campus, April 26, from 4:30pm to 6:00pm. Parking is free.. Anyone interested in growing technology in southern New Mexico is encouraged to attend. For more information please call Dr. Ed Pines at 575-646-2730, or Paul Deason at 575-644-8427.

Economic Analysis: Protect the Public Lands in Doña Ana County For Future Economic Development in the Region
LAS CRUCES, New Mexico – A new report shows that protected public lands are a competitive economic advantage in southern New Mexico and Doña AnaCounty. The analysis confirms that protecting the world-class public lands surrounding Las Cruces will aid the region’s economic development strategy.
“Permanently protecting the iconic Organ Mountains and the surrounding natural treasures will boost our economy and benefit Doña Ana County. This Headwaters report explains how stimulating tourism, attracting new residents, and creating jobs goes hand in hand with permanently protecting public lands”, said Richard Majestic from the High Tech Consortium of Southern New Mexico.
WHAT: On Monday, September 26th, Mesilla Valley community leaders will tour Sapphire Energy’s test and development facility in Las Cruces’ West Mesa Industrial Park. Sapphire is working to commercialize “green crude”—a renewable petroleum replacement that is produced from algae, sunlight and CO2. Sapphire Energy believes that algae will become a very substantial agricultural crop, and make a major difference to the world’s energy balance.
