MAPLE GROVE, MN— Carl Zeiss announces a new entrustment agreement to support Dunwoody College of Technology, located in Minneapolis, MN, with two ZEISS coordinate measuring machines (CMMs) and CALYPSO metrology software. Two of Dunwoody’s programs— Engineering Drafting & Design and Machine Tool Technology—are using these CMMs, which are designed for measurement in the workshop and production, to improvethe students’ manufacturing and quality inspection skills by using the latest measurement technology.

“It’s great to see students gaining competitive skills in the discipline of metrology from a local technical college with a long-standing history in education,” states Chris Grow, vice president of Marketing at Carl Zeiss Industrial Metrology, LLC in North America.

Dunwoody’s Robotics & Manufacturing Technology Department offers a variety of associate and bachelor programs, including some certificate options that provide students with hands-on training on a diverse range of advanced manufacturing tools. Dunwoody’s Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerances course applies quality inspection principles using the ZEISS CMMs. Part inspections are also performed with the CMMs as part of the CNC Lathe, Mill & Mold Making lab, verifying the various machining processes. Approximately 200 students pass through these two courses, offered in both day and evening tracks, each semester.
