New technology in Computer-Integrated Machining program
With the addition of the new Hass simulators in the Computer Integrated Machining department at Surry Community College, students' learning capabilities will be greatly enhanced.
These simulators will enable students to program a part on a laptop or personal computer at home and then bring the program into class on a USB drive to load into the simulator, allowing the students to run the part in graphics mode on the simulator to make sure they have completed the program to specification. After the part has been run on the simulator, students can then proceed to loading the part into the CNC machine and producing the part.
Surry Community College is dedicated to providing students with the technology and equipment necessary to build careers in the machining industry. The Computer Integrated Machining department is very thankful to the administration and Duke Energy for providing the resources and funding to purchase the simulators.
