The 2015 MFGDAY Event at ACE Clearwater

ACE celebrated its third MFGDAY event with more than 500 students from local middle, high, and trade schools – as well as our regional community colleges.

Students roamed at their own pace through 15 work centers, which demonstrated the manufacturing process and new technologies that we use. 3D printing, laser cutting and water jet demonstrations, hands-free computer interaction, hydro-forming, precision laser measurement tools, virtual reality headsets, and welding simulations were all hosted by our team and sponsor suppliers to give them an in-depth understanding of our state-of-the-art equipment and processes. The four-hour event included a very popular lunch set up on our tented parking lot – from four very busy gourmet food trucks.
