Algoma School District To Approve Purchase Of New CNC Machine

Students in the technology education classes at Algoma High School will soon be able to double their production power. The Board of Education is set to approve the purchase of a new CNC machine at its regular meeting on Monday.

Principal of Algoma Schools Nick Cochart says tech ed students run Algoma Wolf Tech, a partnership with area businesses for whom they subcontract various machining and fabrication services.

Cochart says the students get on-the-job experience and can earn credit towards various technical degrees through NWTC. Through the district's partnerships, the tech ed program becomes self-sustaining.

The commercial size milling center is a Haas VF-3 and will cost more than $60,000 but Cochart says the purchase is only possible thanks to revenue from Algoma Wolf Tech and its partner businesses.

The new Haas VF-3 will join another CNC machine from Haas that the district purchased last year for the technical education programs at Algoma High School. Students run Algoma Wolf Tech and subcontract projects for Precision Machine, Olson Fabrication and CTI in Algoma.
