CCAT’s Advanced Manufacturing Center had a busy Wednesday, with UConn’s Executive MBA Program and Slater Skins Racing in Milford, Conn. looking to improve work processes. UConn students focused on additive manufacturing and came to the AMC to learn as much as they could as quickly as possible from our experienced and knowledgeable staff. John Slater and John Andros from Slater Skins Racing, which creates skins for Motocross and Supercross bikes in order to display more signage and advertisement on bikes, wanted a file on hand with exact measurements for one of their new Yamaha bikes so that they no longer had to take the measurements by hand. Our experienced Manufacturing Applications Engineer Nasir Mannan used his white-light scanning technology to complete their request.
AMC Director Don Balducci explained: “CCAT diverse manufacturing processes can service various groups of Connecticut manufacturing companies — from aerospace, to medical, to automotive, and many others.”
