Computerized Design and Manufacturing - Facilities
The drafting facilities simulate typical industrial settings. Plotting media, scanning equipment, and various projection systems are used in the delivery of daily lectures and presentations. Students work using cutting-edge software on their own notebook computer.
The first-year machine tool lab is equipped with manually operated machines (lathes, mills, shapers, grinders, etc. and appropriate tooling), establishing a solid machining foundation upon which to continue. Acquisition of equipment stems from a $1,000,000 grant from the Gleason Foundation. This equipment allows students to use the most up-to-date technology available. The second-year machine tool technology program is located in an actual industrial setting. The second-year machine tool student will be instructed in the use of CNC machine tools and may apply this knowledge in a shadowing experience in the host companies’ facilities.
The welding shop, established using a $300,000 federal Appalachian Regional Commission grant, houses 20 individual welding booths, each with an adjustable exhaust pickup. It contains heavy-duty industrial grade welders, TIG, MIG, Oxy-fuel, and arc welders along with oxy-fuel and plasma cutters. Hydraulic bend tester and grinders comprise the equipment in this facility. In our senior welding lab, tools used in the fabrication industry will be used. This impressive facility is located adjacent to our machine tool center at a local industrial park.
When Jessica graduated from Alfred State’s CAD program she went right to work as a designer for Praxair, the largest industrial gases company in North and South America. The company serves the aerospace, chemicals, electronics, energy, food and beverage, healthcare, manufacturing, and metals industries.
If, as Hank Henderson believes, "people advance themselves more easily when they speak well," it is no surprise that he finds himself at the head of Henderson Industries (HI), in West Paterson, NJ.
