TMA Precision Machining Competition draws national attention
AdvancedManufacturing.org website shared info about TMA’s recent Precision Machining Competition held earlier this month at Mazak Corporation’s Schaumburg facility:
In support of the local Technology & Manufacturing Association(TMA), Mazak Corp.’s (Florence, KY) Midwest Technology Center hosted the 27th annual Precision Machining Competition, which honors excellence in precision machining skills among Illinois high school students. At the awards ceremony May 10, TMA presented 52 students with first-, second- and third-place awards in six machining categories.
Many of the event’s activities took place in the machining demonstration area of the center. Students, parents, and instructors traveled from up to 60 miles away to explore the latest in advanced machining technology. Attendees also visited with more than 35 representatives from the local manufacturing industry who answered students’ questions and discussed the many opportunities in manufacturing careers.
