Mitutoyo America announces sponsorship with Titans of CNC

Mitutoyo America Corp. announces a sponsorship agreement with Titans of CNC, a free project-based education platform that helps guide students and teachers on CNC machine operation and programming. The Academy provides over 3,000 free online courses in CAD, CAM and CNC machining techniques, and is used by over 45,000 members in 170 different countries.

Mitutoyo metrology products will be featured in both the Titans of CNC Show airing on Titan TV and will be utilized on Titan CNC Academy videos for demonstration purposes.

“As a leader in the field of precision metrology, Mitutoyo America is excited to partner with Titans of CNC Academy.  We look forward to supporting skill development in US manufacturing by providing metrology experience and leading technology to the Titans of CNC team,” said Matt Dye, president of Mitutoyo America Corp.

Titans of CNC will highlight Mitutoyo products through video tutorials in Gilroy’s personal manufacturing facility located in Rocklin, California. These videos, along with other content, will be featured on Titans of CNC social media platforms, including YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Some of the Mitutoyo equipment featured will include: a MiSTAR shop floor CMM, Quick Image vision system, SJ-200/400 surface roughness tester, LH-600 linear height gauge, QuantuMike/QuickMike coolant proof micrometers, coolant proof calipers, U-Wave T and U-Wave FIT, MeasurLink 9 data management system, and other Mitutoyo metrology instruments and software.

Titans of CNC was started by Titan Gilroy as a CNC machine shop in Northern California focused on making the most difficult parts in aerospace. The company transitioned into a massive reality TV series as a world-first CNC educational platform recognized by a global network of engineers, machinists, hobbyists, students and educators.

“We are excited to officially partner with Mitutoyo,” said Gilroy, CEO of Titans of CNC Inc. “Our mutual focus on educating the next generation of manufacturing professionals will not only inspire, but will also give practical knowledge of inspection practices to all.”

  • computer numerical control ( CNC)

    computer numerical control ( CNC)

    Microprocessor-based controller dedicated to a machine tool that permits the creation or modification of parts. Programmed numerical control activates the machine’s servos and spindle drives and controls the various machining operations. See DNC, direct numerical control; NC, numerical control.

  • computer-aided design ( CAD)

    computer-aided design ( CAD)

    Product-design functions performed with the help of computers and special software.

  • computer-aided manufacturing ( CAM)

    computer-aided manufacturing ( CAM)

    Use of computers to control machining and manufacturing processes.

  • coolant

    coolant

    Fluid that reduces temperature buildup at the tool/workpiece interface during machining. Normally takes the form of a liquid such as soluble or chemical mixtures (semisynthetic, synthetic) but can be pressurized air or other gas. Because of water’s ability to absorb great quantities of heat, it is widely used as a coolant and vehicle for various cutting compounds, with the water-to-compound ratio varying with the machining task. See cutting fluid; semisynthetic cutting fluid; soluble-oil cutting fluid; synthetic cutting fluid.

  • metrology

    metrology

    Science of measurement; the principles on which precision machining, quality control and inspection are based. See precision machining, measurement.

  • vision system

    vision system

    System in which information is extracted from visual sensors to allow machines to react to changes in the manufacturing process.
