West High Adds High Tech Equipment to Machining Lab

West High Adds High Tech Equipment to Machining Lab

West High’s Machining Lab just added a Haas CNC (Computer Numerical Control) Toolroom 1–Lathe with the help of grants from the Scott Country Regional Authority and STEM BEST (Businesses Engaging Students and Teachers). With this equipment, students will learn how to operate and program a CNC lathe, giving them cutting-edge skills to make themselves competitive in today’s advanced manufacturing market. Pictured is Michael France, a student enrolled in Computer Integrated Manufacturing and member of West’s robotics team, showing a part he machined using the lathe.
