G-E-T Tech Ed Students Gain Real World Experience with New CNC Mill

The Technical Education Department at Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau Schools recently obtained a CNC vertical mill funded through several grants.

Computer numerical controlled (CNC) machining is cutting edge technology used by many area employers.  The machine drills and cuts on multiple axes and can create a variety of shapes, slots, and holes that would be nearly impossible using manual tooling methods. Most CNC milling machines also integrate a device for pumping cutting fluid to the cutting tool during machining.

Several grants and donations helped fund this opportunity.  ALM Charities, Fastenal, the G-E-T Education Foundation, WXOW’s Tools for Schools, and a state grant all contributed to help cover the cost, and GEA Farm Technologies has donated coolant and cutters to use.

Teachers will receive training and students will learn to use cutting-edge technology used by many area employers.  Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau was commended by one of the donors for being one of the best technical education programs in the area.
