Traveling CNC office mill opens world of manufacturing to high schoolers

A new high-tech piece of equipment will bring the world of advanced manufacturing into the classrooms of 23 area high schools.

It's called a computer numerical control (CNC) office mill, and it allows operators to cut materials like metal at different depths using computer controls.

The CNC office mill was brought in through a partnership between Central Lakes College (CLC), the Brainerd Lakes Chamber of Commerce and several industry businesses.

It was unveiled Wednesday at Brainerd High School where it will stay in the classroom of industrial arts teacher Brian Bordwell for the next few weeks before making its way to Staples High School.
