Jergens Provides 5-Axis Machining Kits to Twelve Louisiana Community and Technical Colleges

As the manufacturing skills gap continues to widen, job candidates with 5-axis CNC skills are in high demand.

To help build a skilled workforce that meets the need of advanced manufacturers, Haas Automation and Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards announced a partnership to install a 5-axis machining center at every community and technical college in the state.

Louisiana Economic Development's (LED) FastStart program and the Louisiana Community and Technical College System (LCTCS) created a partnership to install the CNCs in all twelve LCTCS schools. Each school will receive a Haas UMC-500.

With these new machining centers, all of the necessary tooling and workholding was required.

Jergens was thrilled to step in and partner with this program to provide the proper workholding for the Haas UMC-500’s.

Haas kits can also be used on all other Haas machining centers including UMC’s, HRT’s, VF2’s and VF4’s. In addition to Haas, Jergens has modular workholding kits for Mazak, Doosan, Hurco and Mori Seiki machining centers.

Here are some of the products included in the 5-axis machining kits:

  • 5-Axis Subplate
  • Fixture-Pro® 130mm Self-Centering Vises
  • Dovetail Jaw Inserts
  • Fixture-Pro® 125mm 5-Axis Riser
  • Ball Lock® Fixture Plate
  • Ball Lock® Shanks (for mounting fixture plate)

We are excited to be a part of this opportunity to help develop the advanced skills greatly needed by the manufacturing labor market.
