Rose State College hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony commemorating the launch of the MOOG Advanced Manufacturing Learning Lab and the EOS M-270 3-D Printer recently. MOOG Inc., an American-based designer and manufacturer of motion and fluid controls and control systems for applications in aerospace, defense, industrial and medical devices, provided the EOS M-270 Printer to Rose State for training and will assist in developing a multi-level curriculum. The EOS M-270 is a metal laser powder bed infusion-based 3-D printer capable of printing a variety of materials ranging from light alloys to superalloys and composites, with Rose State College primarily printing in 17-4 Stainless Steel.
With this metal 3-D printer in place, Rose State is now able to provide valuable training opportunities and resources to Tinker Air Force Base and Oklahoma manufacturers like no other higher educational institution in Oklahoma. Rose State is strides ahead as the only higher-ed facility in Oklahoma with this quality of machine available for students and faculty.
