TURNERS FALLS 一 Superintendent Richard Martin is pleased to share that three Franklin County Technical School students recently completed a manufacturing project for local high-technology company Judd Wire. Advanced manufacturing students Ethan Grossett, Kevyn Senecal, and Preston Duval took on Judd Wire’s request to have precise gauges made to test their products. Judd Wire specializes in insulation for wiring.
The trio generated questions, reasoned through adversity, tested, programmed, implemented thoughtful sequential processes, and demonstrated awareness of the fundamental environments an engineer may experience when presented with a problem.
An example of the adhesion brackets Franklin County Technical students created for Judd Wire, which display engraved numbers to indicate the precise size of each hole.
“As a teacher, there are moments when you see the critical thinking, problem solving, machine proficiency, and genuine solid work ethic of your students shine through,” said Advanced Manufacturing Teacher Scott Wolfram. “These students have shown me, time and time again, that they are listening, processing, expanding on their knowledge, and are on a trajectory to a successful career in whatever they set their minds to.”
The students were able to create multiple sets of adhesion brackets for Judd Wire that displayed engraved numbers to indicate the precise size of each hole.
“It is wonderful to see the hard work being put in by our students at Franklin County Tech,” said Superintendent Martin. “Great work by Ethan, Kevyn, and Preston on their impressive example of precision and dedication to helping members of the community with their project.”
