Brandon M. Littlefield of Russell, second from the right, and Michael A. Johnson of Warren, right, were part of a Pennsylvania College of Technology team led by Keith H. English (back) instructor of automated manufacturing and machining, involved with manufacturing a press brake. Littlefield is majoring in automated manufacturing technology, and Johnson is majoring in manufacturing engineering technology, Warren. The student-manufactured press brake development will benefit multiple majors. Ingenuity among students, faculty and staff across various majors at Pennsylvania College of Technology is resulting in a cost-effective initiative that will benefit the institution and its academic programs for years to come. The college is in the final stages of manufacturing the press brake, a machine that efficiently bends sheet metal. The completed device will be employed for hands-on student work in several majors, including auto restoration, collision repair, welding, and automated manufacturing and machining.
