A vibrant manufacturing sector, especially one invigorated with the latest technologies, requires focused investments along the entire technology innovation pipeline. We intend to purchase equipment needed to enhance our existing programs to recruit and train potential employees.Machinists and tool and die makers set up and operate a variety of computer-controlled and mechanically controlled machine tools to produce precision metal parts, instruments, and tools.We will use our investments for equipment to train machinists or tool and die makers by teaching design and blueprint reading, how to use a variety of welding and cutting tools, and the programming and function of computer numerically controlled (CNC) machines. Our current robotic course is taught with Solidwork software. However our instructor has not had any professional development from Project Lead the Way the leader in the field. His educational and instructional resources are good for introducing robotics at the basic level to high-school students and new machine tool technology students, however in order to improve quality of instruction and align the technical skills to current industrial needs, the MTT department needs to adopt Fanuc robot and software that compatible with Haas and others major automation equipment manufacturers and have PLTW professional development. The MTT department will also use some of our investment funds for professional development and to obtain a Fanuc Fenceless-LR Mate Certified Robot Training Package and use it as a primary lab equipment and software .The intended outcome is to impact enrollment within the MTT & MTEC programs and get students gainfully employed.
