Sandvik Coromant has recently worked with Haas Automation Inc. during two separate events to promote education in the manufacturing field. Held on 15 – 17 July 2009 at Guilford Technical Community College in Greensboro, North Carolina, the 2009 North American Haas Technical Education Center (HTEC) National Conference brought educators from around the country together to discuss the state of technical education. Brian Norris, VP marketing and business, at Sandvik Coromant, delivered the keynote address, “Creating a Skilled Industry Through Education,” on the opening day of the event. In addition to participating in the HTEC Conference, Sandvik Coromant also brought its Modern Art of Milling event to the Neil Armstrong Hall of Engineering at Purdue University in late July. Designed to communicate the cost savings achievable through productivity improvements, Modern Art of Milling events were held throughout the country during June and July.
