Navajo Tech Center for Digital Technologies has installed new CMM for their Metrology Education. The CMM is from Hexagon Metrology, a 4.5.4 Floor model with a motorized probe head that will suit NTU's needs for CMM programming and training. NTU will be able to measure parts up to 14 x 20 x 14 inches to a high accuracy. This machine will help NTU round its metrology equipment currently housed in the Fabrication Lab that includes a FaroArm with scanning head attachment, Faro laser tracker, and a HDI 3X structured light scanner
Adriane Tenequer — Industrial Engineering Student
Adriane Tenequer is an Industrial Engineering student at NTU and is working as an intern in the Fabrication Lab (Center for Digital Technologies). Adriane is working on the CNC Vertical Milling Machine and creating some 3D printed objects as part of her coursework and part of her work as the intern. The experiences in the lab allow her to put into practice some of the education learned in the classroom, for example G-Coding for running CNCs and creating 3D models for both CNC and 3D printing.
3D Systems Projet 3600
Navajo Tech Center for Digital Technologies has installed their newest printer, a 3D Systems Projet 3600. The new printer allows NTU to create even more accurate and finer detailed parts for their programs and internship work. The CDT created our first prints on the machine today and expects to create many parts for their research goals.
