Mitsubishi EDM has announced a new partnership with the Advanced Technology Center of Oakland Community College, Auburn Hills campus. A new Mitsubishi FA20S Advanced Wire EDM is being installed under the direction of Philip Hale, Dean of Technology of OCC, and Dan Meehan, Account Manager for Mitsubishi. Oakland Community College will integrate wire and CNC EDM technology into its Robotics/Automated System curriculum.
This new technology center also will serve as Mitsubishi's local training and demonstration center. Michigan and Ontario customers will continually have local training and support. The company will continue to provide EDM training classes and educational "Demo Days" in Auburn Hills effective immediately.
"This new relationship with Oakland Community College is a wonderful opportunity for Mitsubishi to take our relationships deeper into the manufacturing cycle. We will be training aspiring engineers, designers, toolmakers, or anyone interested on the latest technology in Mitsubishi Wire and CNC Sinker EDM," said Meehan.
The Advanced Technology Center of the Auburn Hills Campus is located at 2900 Featherstone Road, Auburn Hills, Mich.; the facility overlooks the Chrysler-Fiat headquarters.
