Star Cutter Increases Commitment to Alpena Community College Center for Manufacturing Excellence

Star Cutter Company has announced that it will be continuing its support of Alpena Community College's (Alpena, MI) manufacturing programs through increased monetary and equipment donations to the college. The donations will be supplied over a two-year period, helping to bring state-of-the art manufacturing equipment, such as grinding machines and optical comparators, to the center for hands-on training opportunities.

"Manufacturing is core to the local economy, and we understand the importance of attracting talented young people into the skilled trades," said Jeff Lawton, Star Cutter President and COO. "Our relationship with Alpena Community College enables students to train on advanced equipment, preparing them to work for companies such as Star Cutter. To us, investing in the school is an investment in Star's future."

Star Cutter has three manufacturing facilities located near Alpena Community College, all of which work with the school to leverage educational opportunities as well as recruiting and hiring graduates from the manufacturing programs. These facilities include H.B. Carbide in Lewiston, a manufacturer of carbide blanks and pre-form tools; Tawas Tool, a manufacturer of gear tools; and Ossineke Industries, which manufactures custom tooling for a variety of applications.

Alpena Community College's Manufacturing Tool Technology program enables students to become familiar with machine tools and manufacturing processes, developing skills in the operation of computer-aided drafting software, and getting hands-on experience setting up, programming and operating Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines and advanced inspection equipment. Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) and statistical process control (SPC) are skills integrated within the curriculum to prepare the student for employment as CNC programmers, machinists, toolmakers and quality assurance technicians, or move on to complete a four-year degree in Manufacturing Engineering.
