On Friday, July 31, Applied Motion Products hosted students from the local non-profit organization Digital NEST for a tour of our Watsonville headquarters. The purpose of the tour and visit was to see a large format, commercial 3D printer in action and learn how integrated stepper motors from Applied Motion play a critical role in the functioning of that printer. In the days leading up to the visit, the students participated in a 3D modeling and printing workshop provided by the Digital NEST.
Here's what our president, Don Macleod, had to say about the event... "Applied Motion Products have been in Watsonville for 20 years. We benefit directly from a pool of tech savvy employees in this area. Because of this we support local STEM education efforts such as those created by the Digital NEST. This is a worthy cause and we are happy to host their staff and students today to demonstrate state of the art 3D printing and explain how the technology is underpinned by work done right here at Applied Motion."
