The Machine Tool Technology Program at Central Lakes College had a unique opportunity to introduce students to industry training. Kevin Cook, the President of Magnum Machining (Deerwood MN), offered to bring representatives from Mitsubishi Materials USA Corporation for a three hour seminar on modern machining practices of the most current tooling available. John Zaremba and Daryl Reinhardt gave presentations on Machine tooling. Their lecture focused on efficient material removal and how to maximize high-tech tooling.
This link between education and industry allows students to see modern machining from the view of experts in the field. It also exposes students to local employers like Magnum Machining who are currently seeking skilled students for employment.
