Tools that Keep your Company Competitive

It's all here and available to our business and industrial community.

Striving to keep companies competitive and place graduates in high-demand, well-paying jobs, the Campana Center offers local businesses access to equipment designed to enhance their companies– without a large-scale investment.


The Campana Center goes beyond training the next workforce by offering local companies a place to build prototypes and test product design. Industry-based labs including programmable logic controllers, robotic welding and automation, 3D commercial printers, and even virtual reality simulators will help you stay competitive. 

 

Digital Manufacturing Line

 

Digital Manufacturing Line

The Digital Manufacturing Line takes the Fab Lab’s principle of “how to make almost anything” and transitions it to “how to manufacture almost anything.” The line consists of a flexible system that uses digital technology to allow you to design production lines, finding the most cost effective way to manufacture your products. 

The Digital Manufacturing Line is comprised of

  • three full-size Fanuc robots that can work together or independently
  • a high-speed CNC Turning Center for machining
  • a Lincoln Electric Welding Cell
  • Vision System for orienting parts and (future) a Laser Metal Cutting system

It can simulate the operation of a production line to help improve cycle time and system efficiency.

Virtual Reality Room

Virtual Reality Cave

The VisCube provides an immersive virtual reality experience with unlimited practical applications for 3D product review and prototyping, scientific visualization, architecture, and art and design. Examples of industry use include providing virtual training for employees who will work on large-scale or dangerous equipment (such as airplanes) or reviewing and refining 3D prototypes prior to production.

Let us handle your 3D printing

You don't even have to come in. Just Send us your STL file (we typically use SolidWorks to create the 3D STL files). Using the Dimension printer is not inexpensive but the parts are a stronger ABS-plus material and more things are possible since it also uses soluble support material. Email your STL files (not zip files) along with details such as how many of each part that you want, approximate dimensions, and color preferences to fab@lorainccc.edu. We'll process the files and email you a quote.
