Sandvik, an industry partner providing cutting tools for advanced machine tools at Clackamas Community College, will host an open house from 9 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, June 6.
Sandvik, industry leader in cutting tool technology, is hosting its “See the Whole Picture” presentation, part of their “Smart Event” series, which are application workshops presented across the country throughout the year. The open house features demonstrations and information about difficult-to-machine materials, tolerances, surfaces, applications and more.
Sandvik is one of the industry partners, which includes computer numeric control (CNC) machine tool distributor Gosiger, that entered into a partnership with CCC earlier this year. CCC students train on sophisticated machining equipment while the companies use a remodeled college technical classroom to demonstrate the equipment to partners in business and industry. Sandvik provides the cutting tools for the Gosiger CNC machines.
“Through the investment of industry at CCC, we are able to augment our advanced technology classes for our students,” said Scott Giltz, dean of Technology, Health Occupations and Workforce at CCC. “There are thousands of jobs in this country going unfilled because workers don’t have the qualifications to fill them. Through our industry partnerships, we can help bridge that gap.”
