Currier Plastics to Aide Colleges Plastics Technology Program
Currier Plastics, Auburn, NY, is consulting with Cayuga Community College to help create its first plastics technology program.
CCC was awarded a grant last fall to develop an advanced manufacturing project in the plastics industry for New York State and to support state-wide workforce development initiatives. The program will have an injection molding machine with a press-mounted Cartesian robot and conveyor. Students will be able to troubleshoot the interfaces between it and a conveyor system.
Other plans include installation of a mobile multi-axis robot and construction of a mini factory to give students a hands-on learning experience of a real molding facility.
