Transfer Flow, a manufacturer of aftermarket and OEM fuel tank systems, has announced plans to open its Chico, Calif., manufacturing facility to local high school welding and fabricator teachers for a five-day training class in June. The training class will be conducted by Transfer Flow engineers and high-tech equipment operators.
The teachers will get hands-on training on how to operate production equipment, including a two-station welding robot, a Cincinnati 4,000-W laser cutter, a CNC Accurpress press brake, and a Haas vertical machining center.
“Our hope is that the teachers attending the five-day course will write curriculum for their students. Once the students learn the curriculum, they will come to Transfer Flow and build a project using all the tools they learned,” stated Bill Gaines, founder of Transfer Flow and coordinator of the training class. “This is the type of equipment the students may expect to operate in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.”
