Dunwoody’s Haas Education Center grows

Dunwoody College of Technology’s Haas Education Center recently added a new Haas VF-2 vertical milling machine to its collection.

This state-of-the-art machine will expose second-year Machine Tool Technology students to multi-axis machining, tool probing, and part probing functions–giving these students experience with the latest tools in their industry. But it’s not just the machining students who will be working with this new equipment.

New equipment promotes hands-on collaboration

“One of the main reasons we got this machine was to support special projects and program collaboration,” said Brian Nelsen, Machine Tool Technology Senior Instructor.

The Haas Center has become an important space for all students to bring their hands-on assignments to life – like the electronic bikes designed and built by the Engineering Drafting & Design students. And with the growing number of students enrolled in programs like Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Engineering Technology where hands-on projects are key, the addition of this machine will help support a higher volume of work.
