In the month of April 2018, we we’re granted the opportunity to play a critical role in collecting measuring data for judging the 47th Annual TMA Precision Machining Competition hosted by Mazak in Schaumburg, IL.
243 students from 20 local high schools participated in the competition & Made to Measure created CMM Programs to inspect the well crafted parts submitted by the students.

243 students from 20 area high schools participated in @TMAInfo‘s precision machining competition, with many of them coming together tonight to accept awards, meet potential employers, eat pizza, and prove that manufacturing in Illinois is not dead. pic.twitter.com/aSZEfHIpeH

At the awards ceremony, we’re taken back by all of the positive energy and buzz around the manufacturing industry. We had the pleasure of talking to the participating students, parents, and faculty before the awards we’re presented at Mazak’s facility where students were encouraged to ask questions and get a feel for the different career paths the manufacturing industry has to offer. Not only was the event beneficial for the high school students, but we, as a sponsor, learned a lot from them too! Their enthusiasm for the trade was infectious and uplifting and we see a bright future ahead for Illinois! Awards were given, pizza was served, and connections were made. A special thanks to TMA for all of the opportunities they have presented to the youth as well as the sponsors of this event. See you next year!
We loved hosting @TMAinfo‘s #PrecisionMachiningCompetition at our Midwest Technology Center last week! We were amazed at the talents the next generation of manufacturers displayed during the competition! Check out these photos from the event: https://t.co/qWDqoW5Kg9 pic.twitter.com/R5oD1fzydk
