Shaping the Future of Manufacturing


We’ve all repeatedly heard how it is increasingly difficult to find qualified candidates to fill jobs in the precision metalworking industry. Many know that something must be done to attract people to pursue careers in metalworking. To that end, ACU-RITE and HEIDENHAIN have supported educational curriculums in the precision metalworking sector for many years. In a continued show of our commitment, ACU-RITE would like to bring renewed attention to the use of its School Discount Program to all Industrial and Vocational Precision Metalworking programs.

Here, deep discounts allow school faculty to upgrade their manual machines with DRO Packages and MILLPWRG2 CNC packages for knee- and bed-type mills, all made in America. In some instances, with the help of industry partners, some school programs have even received new machines delivered with them too. These programs can now offer the best and most relevant curriculum to their students, attracting even more students because they have cutting edge knowledge to impart.

We believe these school equipment discount programs help to better prepare manufacturing students to take their place in the future of this industry and we are proud to assist them in keeping America strong.
