Macomb (MI) Community College Partners
for Training Facility

Wednesday, May 26, 2004
 
Through a partnership between Macomb (MI) Community College, General Motors and Comau PICO, a supplier of automation systems, two training laboratories and three training cells have been installed at Macomb’s Michigan Technical Education Center (MTEC). The installation answers a need in manufacturing where production companies may not have space or personnel to provide hands-on training. For the robotic-welding cell, GM has donated two Fanuc robots and a fully simulated multistage robotic-welding process. A press-to-press automation simulator and machining center round out the training-cell offerings. The two laboratories, one for programmable-logic-controller/drives technology and the other for hydraulic and pneumatic technology, provide training for programming, editing and troubleshooting systems that run advanced manufacturing processes. Providing the training are Macomb’s Workforce Development Institute and Comau PICO personnel. The MTEC cells and labs can help with your company’s training needs.
