We’ve been invited by the MAC (Manufacturing Assistance Center) to come over for a tour of their facilities on August 25th. They do everything from train new machinists to helping outside companies bring products to market. The center has a lot of equipment including: a lot of Bridgeport-style mills & manual lathes, 4 & 5-axis Haas CNC vertical machining centers, two wire EDM machines, many welding machines, and a lot of other cool stuff.
In the future, we’ll be allowed to use the facilities – if you’re knowledgeable enough not to break stuff – you won’t need a full machining certificate. This tour will give an overview of all their great facilities which we can use in the future.
We need a list of attendees so they can give our names to security to let us in, so please email Nick ASAP if you want to go on the tour.
