Rose State Unveils New MOOG Additive Manufacturing Lab and 3-D Printer
Lab to provide aid to Tinker Air Force Base
Rose State College hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony commemorating the launch of the MOOG Advanced Manufacturing Learning Lab and the EOS M-270 3-D Printer this week. MOOG Inc., an American-based designer and manufacturer of motion and fluid controls and control systems for applications in aerospace, defense, industrial and medical devices, provided the EOS M-270 Printer to Rose State for training, and will assist in developing a multi-level curriculum. The EOS M-270 is a metal laser powder bed infusion-based 3-D printer capable of printing a variety of materials ranging from light alloys to super alloys and composites, with Rose State College primarily printing in 17-4 Stainless Steel.
“The aerospace realm is where Rose State is going,” said Dr. Jeanie Webb, President of Rose State College. “It’s all part of the technology enterprise we are trying to create at Rose State, and the future of Aerospace will no doubt include many and or all of these technological pieces.”
