Indiana High School's Precision Machining Program Receives Donation



BIG KAISER Precision Tooling Inc. recently donated a one-of-a-kind Speroni tool management system to the Precision Machining program at Plymouth Community Schools in Plymouth, IN.

The Speroni MAGIS tool presetting and measuring system was donated to the program after it was replaced with newer equipment at Andretti Autosport in Indianapolis. The machine was embellished with the race team logo and signed by racing legend Michael Andretti as well as current team drivers Marco Andretti and Ryan Hunter-Reay.

"BIG KAISER is a strong supporter of manufacturing education and workforce development, and we needed a home for this presetter," said Doug Sumner, Product Manager for Tool Measuring Systems (TMS) at BIG KAISER. "It was great that we could donate the machine in Indiana, support the kids at Plymouth High School and get the team branding from our partners at Andretti Autosport."

The Plymouth Community Schools program is the result of a public-private consortium supported by Indiana Technology and Manufacturing Company (ITAMCO), Ivy Tech Community College, North Central Area Vocational Cooperative (NCAVC) and Plymouth Community Schools. The group's mission is to better prepare students for the demands of today's technology-driven jobs.

The program mirrors a curriculum at Ivy Tech South Bend, called The Machine Tool Institute, designed to instruct students in shop safety, industrial terminology, hand tools, machine tooling and measurement and layout in a real-world shop setting. Students start with laboratory exercises on manual turning and milling operations, and progress to more sophisticated CNC equipment. As a National Institute of Metalworking Skills (NIMS) certified program, they earn dual credits for high school and at Ivy Tech, where many students decide to continue their education.

"Every student leaves the program with a minimum skill set of manual mill and lathe set-up experience, blueprint reading including GD&T, and precision measurement use," said Scott Kaser, Instructor at Plymouth Community School. "The addition of the Speroni TMS gives the student a well-rounded skill level of all the possible ways tools could be set up in a CNC production environment."
