Polymer producer Covestro LLC has donated a coextrusion sheet line to Pennsylvania College of Technology in Williamsport, Pa.
Covestro also will provide faculty and students with onsite training, including demonstration tooling.
“Giving students access to this equipment not only enhances their skill set but also helps us continue our mission to support improved STEM [science, technology, engineering and math] education,” said Mark Matsco, director of application development.
Shannon Munro, Penn College's executive director of workforce development and continuing education, said students there learn all the major plastics processes, to give them a well-rounded education.
“This equipment donation — the first of its kind on campus — will expand our capabilities in the plastics field and provide our students with a unique and valuable training experience that further increases their marketability for future employment, Munro said.
