UACCM Welding Technology Program Modernizes Lab with New Equipment

UACCM’s Welding Technology program has received a major boost thanks to a grant from the Perkins Postsecondary Reserve Fund: a CNC hydraulic shear. UACCM obtained the equipment to modernize the college’s welding lab to accommodate more students and to be more reflective of what is commonly used in today’s business and industry.

The hydraulic shear is a state-of-the-art piece of equipment that is used to cut pieces of metal. The machine can run in either manual or automatic mode, which allows the operator to automate processes such as setting back gauge position, stroke length, and blade gap. The CNC feature also allows for the creation and storage of cutting programs, where a student can save settings for later tasks.
