Anoka Technical College
an Amada Technology Showcase

Tuesday, March 2, 2010
A Feb. 18 open house at Anoka Technical College in Anoka, MN, proved the perfect opportunity for the school to show off its new trio of Amada metal-fabricating machines. Amada donated a turret punch press, press brake and laser-cutting machine to the school to boost its sheetmetal-training curriculum. Accompanying the equipment donation came donations from local organizations to help pay for transporting the machines from California and Florida, and to develop a space at the college for the machines. Donations came from several sources—Olympic Steel, Planit Solutions-Software, SICK, Wilson Tool, Mate Precision Tooling, the Precision Metalforming Association, Pentair, Inc. and E.J. Ajax and Sons. Also, the Minnesota Center for Engineering and Manufacturing Excellence provided a $54,000 grant, and Paragon Industrial Controls provided integration services.
