Roll-Kraft and the Alliance for Working Together, a group of Ohio-based manufacturers and educators, are the subjects of a feature article on FFJournal.net, a web site that emphasizes fabricating and forming technology.
The article highlights Roll-Kraft’s latest efforts to spur interest among high school students to consider a career in manufacturing. The Robobots competition allows the students to design and build their own working robots with help from the Roll-Kraft staff. The students use equipment such as CNC turning machines, turning lathes, EDM machines, machining centers, grinders, and CAD/CAM systems.
The competition pits the robots built by various groups of students against one another in a local event. The winner will advance to higher levels of the competition.
According to Roll-Kraft’s president, Chuck Gehrisch, the goal of the competition is “to change the perception of manufacturing by showing students, parents, and schools what modern manufacturing can offer. “
