GE Fanuc Automation, a unit of GE Industrial, (www.gefanuc.com) and Kettering University (www.kettering.edu) announced they are working together for education and research of discrete manufacturing control systems for the automotive and other industries.
As part of the agreement, GE Fanuc will provide Kettering University with a set of manufacturing control components consisting of GE Fanuc's Assembly Application Suite (AAS) hardware and software products to simulate manufacturing environments. Kettering will install the components in the University's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) labs.
In turn, the University will integrate GE Fanuc hardware and software into the course curriculum and develop GE Fanuc-based continuing education offerings. Specifically, GE Fanuc and Kettering will collaborate on case studies and projects to expand GE Fanuc-based course offerings and solutions for discrete manufacturing industries. Kettering will offer initial courses using these resources during the summer 2007 term.
LTI Metrology (www.labtesting.com) has added a Federal B-3 Comparator, a Beta LaserMike and a Mahr Federal Gage Block Comparator to its calibration capabilities.
