Creating really great, hands-on activities takes time, so much more time than many teachers ever get. Kids like hands-on activities, and CCAT's activities are well thought out.

Sandvik Smart Event

Take the stress and chatter out of your long-reach machining processes.

If you have long tool assemblies in your shop, you've heard vibrations—and seen chatter. You're also familiar with the slow speeds and productivity drains that can go hand-in-hand with long-reach machining.


Learn to overcome these challenges at the Good Vibrations Smart Event. With the best practices and tooling solutions you glean from this event, you'll quiet vibrations and increase productivity—enjoying the same cutting data for long tool overhangs that you do with tools less than half their length.

NX 9 Mill Manufacturing Fundamentals Workshop

This course is intended for experienced NC programmers that are new to NX CAM. This class will accelerate the understanding of creating tool paths for 2 and 3 axis milling/drilling centers within NX. Other cutting and non-cutting motions will be explored. The class also focuses on the creation and post processing of NX operations. Upon completion of this course, accomplished Programmers will have the capability to create/modify and output verified 3 axis NC programs for milling machines. The pace and topics of this course have been carefully planned specifically for the experienced NC programmer.
