Tolland, Conn. – CNC Software Inc., developers of Mastercam, has announced a new partnership with TITANS of CNC Inc. to help train the next generation of highly skilled CNC machinists and eliminate the widening skills gap. The organizations have entered into a three-year partnership to develop media that advocates for CNC education and high-level aerospace manufacturing processes.
Mastercam CAD/CAM software is the most widely used CAM in industry and education worldwide, according to CNC Software. The software is used in companies requiring precision machining, such as shops in the automotive and aerospace industries.
TITANS of CNC is a free educational platform, consisting of more than 3,000 online courses, that guides students and teachers through CNC machine operation and programming. The Academy consists of online courses in fundamentals, learning CAD, CAM, advanced work holding, 5-axis, and more. The organization has a following among students and professionals in manufacturing and are preparing the release of TITANS of CNC: Aerospace Academy – a tutorial-based platform teaching high-level manufacturers the skills necessary to produce complex aerospace parts using the most difficult materials.
“We are proud to partner with such an inspirational team,” said Meghan West, President, CNC Software. “From the beginning of our existence, CNC Software has made a concerted effort to address the educational market. We have always recognized the importance of recruiting young minds into our field. TITANS of CNC has made it their mission to do just that. We are proud and humbled to be working with such a wonderful group of people that have the same mission,” West continued.
As a result of this partnership, TITANS of CNC will feature Mastercam in the production of videos for education and social media purposes. As a champion of the Mastercam brand, TITANS of CNC will engage more than 70,000 users of Mastercam. “TITANS of CNC is proud to partner with Mastercam, a leader in CAM systems globally,” says Titan Gilroy, CEO, TITANS of CNC. “As our Academy continues to grow, we believe it is necessary to teach with the latest, most-advanced CAM software and machining technology available. Knowledge is power, and what we teach has a direct effect on manufacturing companies’ ability to outperform their competitors.”
Gilroy continued, “We are stepping up to the pinnacle of CNC machining education, introducing our new “Aerospace Academy” in early 2020. With the presence of ITAR regulations and restrictions, utilizing Mastercam as our advanced CAM solution makes perfect sense. We will be utilizing Mastercam to produce the majority of our upcoming aerospace tutorials, which will live on our free Aerospace Academy website. In addition to these extremely detailed and difficult projects, we will be recreating our Rocket Series, Building Blocks Series, and The Art of Fixturing Series in Mastercam.”
