Engineering a perfect putter

June 13, 2017 — What do Matt Kuchar, Jordan Niebrugge and Eddie Pepperell have in common? They’ll likely be using a Bettinardi putter during the U.S. Open at Erin Hills.

A putter is one of the most-used and most critical clubs in a golfer’s bag—and MSOE alumnus Robert Bettinardi ’82 has dedicated his career to developing the perfect putter. He is the president and founder of Bettinardi Golf.

After earning his bachelor’s degree in industrial management from MSOE, Bettinardi returned home to Tinley Park, Illinois to take over his family’s manufacturing business and eventually started his own manufacturing business called X-Cel Technologies. His company specializes in milling highly sophisticated equipment for the Department of Defense, telecommunications and medical industries, on state-of-the-art CNC machines.

In 1991, he saw an advertisement for a putter milled on an out-of-date machine. Knowing the machines in his shop were far superior, Bettinardi was confident that he could produce a better product. He spent months with his team of engineers developing prototypes on CNC milling machines. They ultimately changed the way putters were made—by milling them from a single block of steel rather than welding multiple pieces together.

Bettinardi said he’s proud that he was able to become a successful businessman with an idea that became his passion. “It takes time, energy and practice to develop the highest quality and highest performing product.”

“MSOE was fantastic for me because the professors were hands-on and not buried in theory. They were part of industry and I learned first-hand from faculty with experience at Allen-Bradley, Harnischfeger and Harley-Davidson.”

That foundation is what has helped him expand Bettinardi Golf. The company continues to improve its products and develop new technology and face milling styles. It’s also expanded to offer professionally fitted and customized putters for golfers around the world.

MSOE and Minnesota State College Southeast create new transfer agreement

June 1st, 2017

June 1, 2017 — Milwaukee School of Engineering and Minnesota State College Southeast announced the creation of a new transfer agreement. Graduates of MSCS’s AAS in Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) program can seamlessly transfer their associate degree credits to MSOE and pursue a baccalaureate degree in electrical engineering.

“Our new agreement with Minnesota State College Southeast gives students with an associate degree in electrical engineering technology the opportunity to transfer efficiently into the BSEE program at MSOE in their career path to electrical engineering,” said Dr. Robert Strangeway, MSOE professor and AAS-EET to BSEE transfer track coordinator. “Graduates of our BSEE program go on to lead successful careers. Last year’s graduates enjoyed a 100 percent placement rate and an average starting salary of $64,172.”

“MSCS is honored to work with MSOE to bring this opportunity to our students and community. We believe MSOE’s long history of forward-looking engineering curriculum coupled with MSCS’s core competencies in applied technology education will result in engineering graduates able to serve across our robust engineering and manufacturing industries,” said Travis Thul, MSCS dean of trade and technology. “We look forward to these graduates demonstrating what is possible when great institutions collaborate towards the betterment of our students, schools, and employers.”

This new agreement is a great opportunity for students to continue their education. MSCS AAS EET graduates will have the mathematical and analytical background to continue pursuit of a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering degree at MSOE. A bachelor’s degree further enhances the marketability of the graduate and opens up career opportunities as an electrical designer, electrical engineer, electronics engineer, avionics engineer, test design engineer and more.

MSOE has several transfer agreements with many other educational institutions. This is the first agreement between MSOE and MSCS, and it was prompted by Thul, who is an MSOE alumnus. He personally understands the value in continuing one’s education after obtaining an associate degree—he earned his Associate of Applied Science degree in Electrical Engineering Technology from Fox Valley Technical College and transferred to MSOE to obtain his Bachelor of Science degree.

Tracking Stand Light for Milwaukee Tool
The Milwaukee Tool Tracking Stand Light is a modified version of the Milwaukee Tool TRUEVIEW Stand Light, currently on the market. The new version is able to autonomously track a single user based on the color of the person’s shirt. Using infrared sensors and a camera module, motors on the light automatically position it so that the user is in the center of the beam of light. The motors are controlled by a Raspberry Pi and image processing is done with a Raspberry Pi Camera Module. Location: Library

Lower Limb Prosthetic
There currently is no lower limb prosthetic on the market that allows for motion similar to rolling an ankle. A team of students designed a powered prosthetic device for lower limb amputees that can provide control in both the flexion extension (heel strike, toe-off) and inversion eversion (rolling of the ankle) movements. This novel powered multi-axis lower limb prosthetic provides proof of concept that lower limb prosthetics have the potential to provide complete support throughout the gait cycle over any terrain. Location: Library

Featherprint
Featherprint is an app for a mobile device that identifies a specific bird based on its song. Much like apps that identify songs heard on the radio, this app compares the song of a bird to a database of bird calls. It provides a list of the top five birds that are the closest match and details about the identified bird including its common name, behavior, different calls and more. It also provides a field guild for manual identification of all North American birds. The app is made for Android and iOS devices and relies on neural networks to analyze the audio. Location: Library

Robot Pentathlon
Two teams of students participated in the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Design Competition where they designed and created robots that would compete in an Olympic-themed pentathlon by throwing a tennis ball, hit a golf ball, mass lift, climb stairs and sprint. Location: Campus Center, Todd Wehr Auditorium

LEGO® Automated Storage and Retrieval System
For as long as LEGOs have been around, so have LEGO storage and retrieval problems. Gone are the days of sorting through bins of blocks to find the exact piece needed for a project. Students designed a cabinet that can store more than 270 unique LEGO components and retrieve any piece within a minute using an Android-based application. With an easy-to-use interface, users select the piece they want. The app will communicate via Bluetooth which piece to retrieve, making it child’s play for the users to get their pieces. Location: Campus Center, Todd Wehr Auditorium
