As part of its efforts to support manufacturing education, OSG USA Inc. (Glendale Heights, Illinois) recently announced its sponsorship of two student engineering groups: the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Mini-Baja Racing Team at Purdue University, and the University of Michigan’s Human-Powered Submarine Team. OSG donated over $30,000 in new tooling to the teams to support their manufacturing activities.  

“Through our tooling donations to the Purdue University’s Mini-Baja Racing Team and the University of Michigan’s Human-Powered Submarine Team, we hope to help these engineers better understand metalcutting through the use and applications of OSG’s advanced and innovative cutting tools,” says Mike Cotton, OSG marketing manager.

“These end mills are very high quality, and we are excited to put them to good use,” says Tasha Gillum, a University of Michigan student from the submarine team.

The SAE Mini-Baja Racing Team at Purdue University designs, manufactures and races a one-person off-road vehicle and participates in three regional competitions annually. The Human-Powered Submarine Team at the University of Michigan designs and fabricates its own one-person submarines. That team will be competing this July in the European International Submarine Races in the United Kingdom.

In a recent blog post, OSG reported: “We were glad to see the students open the boxes of new tooling with big smiles on their faces. Seeing them excited to use our tools made us realize how important it is for us to be a part of educating manufacturing students. We continue to actively work with technical colleges and universities to demonstrate our commitment to inspire the next generation of manufacturers.”
