Gene F. Haas Center for Advanced Manufacturing Skills
K&E Plastics was pleased to be invited to the ribbon cutting of the Gene F. Haas Center for Advanced Manufacturing Skills at Hudson Valley Community College last month. The advanced manufacturing program at HVCC has always been a wonderful resource for local manufacturers as all the team leaders at K&E Plastics are graduates from HVCC. This new center at HVCC will be an extraordinary asset to the entire Northeast and K&E Plastics is fortunate to be so close.
Machining Glass Laminates.
Check out the delivery of G10 raw material K&E Plastics recently received. Many machine shops do not like working with glass laminates such as G10 and FR4. From a machining perspective, the glass laminates are prone to de-lamination if you do not have the experienced machinists needed for these types of materials.
Moreover, machining the glass laminates results in an abrasive dust that can be problematic if you do not have the proper ventilation systems. K&E Plastics has a dual dust collection systems with each of our air handlers moving 18,000 CFM of air that connect all 28 of our machine stations.
The combination of our highly skilled machinists and state-of-the-art dust collection system makes K&E Plastics a leader in the machining of glass laminates such as G10 and FR4.
