Siemens has made in-kind donations of automation and motion control technologies to the Georgia Institute of Technology Foundation for two research projects. Sponsored by the Siemens Automation Cooperates with Education (SCE) program, the donations were given for the development of the Aerospace Manufacturing Lab and the Cherry Picker Crane Project, which are driven through the Georgia Tech Manufacturing Research Center (MARC).
Valued at $102,667, the donation to the Aerospace Manufacturing Lab was made in conjunction with a research agreement between Georgia Tech and Boeing to research innovative manufacturing technologies for aerospace products. The Cherry Picker project is part of Georgia Tech’s crane control research within the Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering. That project received $44,737 worth of equipment
