Milacron and Shawnee State University Announce Partnership

Milacron Injection Molding and Extrusion has announced a significant equipment donation to Shawnee State University (SSU) in Portsmouth, OH, as part of its ongoing strategic partnership with the university. Milacron is an industrial technology company serving the plastics processing industry and is part of the Hillenbrand, Inc. enterprise.

Previously on loan to SSU, Milacron has now donated a 55-ton MTs injection molding machine with a mold temperature controller, two conveyors and a dryer, and a 110-ton Roboshot Alpha-SiA-g injection molding machine with cell robot automation, temperature controller and dryer. This equipment allows students in the university's Plastics Engineering Technology program to receive hands-on training with essential machinery and technology in the plastics industry-from operating the equipment to create fully developed plastics parts, to maintaining and troubleshooting. As part of their senior project, students design, build and produce their own plastic mold for a fully developed part.

Milacron and SSU's partnership also includes scholarship opportunities, with funding provided by Milacron to the university's foundation for tuition assistance, which serve as a tool for recruitment and the promotion of STEM fields for incoming students.

"Milacron values its long-standing partnership with Shawnee State University, and, with this donation, we hope today's STEM students will be empowered to be our future leaders," said Mac Jones, Senior Vice President of Hillenbrand, Inc. and President of Milacron Injection Molding and Extrusion. "As part of the Hillenbrand enterprise, we embrace the company's commitment to being responsible to our communities. Partnerships like the one with Shawnee State University are key to our ongoing company sustainability efforts, as well as helping meet the growing critical need for a skilled workforce in advanced manufacturing."

"Milacron's continued commitment to our Plastics Engineering Technology program furthers our mission to prepare students for the in-demand careers in plastics," said Adam Miller, Department Chairperson of Engineering Technologies and Associate Professor at SSU. "We appreciate Milacron's partnership and this generous donation, which will continue to provide our students with hands-on experiences essential to future career success."
