Tour Your Advanced Technology Centers
March 30, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 9:45 am
Join us for a virtual tour of CCAT’s Advanced Technology Centers (ATC) located in East Hartford, Connecticut. This tour will highlight the ATC’s technology in additive manufacturing, precision machining, automation and metrology, and composites. During this 45-minute experience, you will hear from the ATC’s experts, including Jeff Crandall, Nasir Mannan, John von Roemer, and Andrew Frasca, as they walk you through the extensive capabilities and applications of innovative technologies in manufacturing.
⦁ In additive manufacturing, both powder bed fusion and directed energy deposition technologies will be showcased including the Optomec LENS 850R, Renishaw AM400, and DMG MORI LASERTEC 65 3D hybrid.
⦁ In precision machining, 5-axis milling and turning machining will be presented on the Mazak Variaxis 630-5X-II-T. Wire EDM machining will be demonstrated on the Sodick SL400G wire EDM with linear motor drive.
⦁ In automation and metrology, the NSI X5000 CT scanner, GOM 5108 Scanbox, and M3DI Variscan 3D Scanner will be shown.
This experience is designed to provide incumbent workers, educators and college students with a general understanding of technologies in additive manufacturing, precision machining, automation and metrology, and composites.
Money for Manufacturing is available for eligible CT manufacturers through three different grant programs. Funded by the CT Department of Economic and Community Development and administered by CCAT, these programs provide funding to implement IoT, adopt additive technologies and improve productivity, efficiency and competitiveness.
