Carl Zeiss, Dunwoody team up for training

Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology LLC has announced a new entrustment agreement to support Dunwoody College of Technology, Minneapolis, with two Zeiss coordinate measuring machines and Calypso metrology software.

Two of Dunwoody’s programs, Engineering Drafting & Design and Machine Tool Technology, are using these CMMs, designed for measurement in the workshop and production, to improve the students’ manufacturing and quality inspection skills by using the latest measurement technology. “It’s great to see students gaining competitive skills in the discipline of metrology from a local technical college with a long-standing history in education,” stated Chris Grow, vice president of marketing at Carl Zeiss, based in Maple Grove, Minn.

Dunwoody’s Robotics & Manufacturing Technology Department offers a variety of associate and bachelor programs, including some certificate options that provide students with hands-on training on a diverse range of advanced manufacturing tools. Dunwoody’s Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerances course applies quality inspection principles using the Zeiss CMMs. Part inspections are also performed with the CMMs as part of the CNC Lathe, Mill & Mold Making lab, verifying the various machining processes.

Each semester, about 200 students pass through these two courses, which are offered in both day and evening tracks. “Our CMMs were out of date and limited. By partnering with Carl Zeiss we were able to bring in the latest in CMM technology and software launching our metrology lab into the 21st century,” says E.J. Daigle, dean of Robotics & Manufacturing Technology at Dunwoody College of Technology.

Dunwoody College of Technology recently installed two Zeiss CMMs for training.

Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology’s North American headquarters and manufacturing facility are located in Maple Grove. The facility also supports and services coordinate measuring machines, CT X-ray systems, form and surface systems, and metrology software.
