CGCC Gets Manufacturing Equipment For Students

Columbia Gorge Community College is receiving industry-standard manufacturing equipment to expand job training for students pursuing careers in technology-based careers.  The equipment is the latest addition to the college’s Columbia Gorge Regional Skills Center.  Google provided a grant of $85,000 to Columbia Gorge Community College Foundation to purchase and transport the equipment, which includes computer numerical controlled milling and lathe equipment from Prigel Machines in Odell.  The machines are used in a variety of industries including manufacturing, agriculture, aerospace and wood products.  The college also plans to make these new machines available for businesses to use for prototyping and design.  In 2021, Google contributed funding for a 3D-printer, laser engraver, watercutter, milling machine, studio system furnace, and other equipment for the Regional Skills Center’s makerspace, resolving a critical gap in training capacity.
