Precision Machining Students Visit Oerlikon Metco


Thank you to the Oerlikon Metco facility in Dayton for welcoming Adult Education Precision Machining students recently! Students toured the Oerlikon Metco's facility at  240 Detrick St, Dayton, and learned more about their operations.  They witnessed first-hand the production of several components of the manufacturing facility and saw the tool room where toolmakers build and maintain the tooling for the facilities production process.  Oerlikon followed the visit up with interviews for six adult education students interested in becoming apprentice tool-maker for Oerlikon Metco!
