Emuge Donates Cutting Tools to Community College


Emuge Corp. has recently donated hundreds of high performance taps, end mills and other rotary cutting tools to Quinsigamond Community College of Worcester, Mass. The tool donation, valued at more than $100,000, will be used to support the college’s new machining technology program that was recently formed.

QCC is expanding and updating its Manufacturing Technology Center, a multi-million dollar facility housing a range of technological equipment on their main Worcester campus. This center provides students with hands-on learning experiences in today’s advanced manufacturing technologies. The center boasts new CNC machining centers, metrology equipment and a wide array of tools and software, to enable the manufacturing and inspection of real world parts and components. The Manufacturing Technology Center is designed to complement the college’s STEM programming in the soon to be opened QuEST Center (Quinsigamond Engineering, Science and Technology Center).

“We are thrilled to have received this very generous donation of tools from Emuge,” said Dr. Gail Carberry, President of QCC. “We are especially pleased that Emuge reached out to us regarding the donation at a time when we are actively building and implementing expanded programming in manufacturing and engineering technologies. The new initiative is designed to equip our students with the knowledge and practical skills necessary to fill the rapidly growing gap in the manufacturing workforce and help them secure careers in advanced manufacturing. The tools will be a huge plus for the program.”
