The Applied Manufacturing Center introduces engineering majors to the automated world of manufacturing processes. Hands-on approach applies manufacturing machine technology to precision measuring techniques, basic manual machines operation, such as drill presses and CHC (Computer Numerated Control )milling machines, and automated, CNC presses. Cutting edge technologies include a rapid prototyping 3-D printer for manufacturing Autocam-designed parts from ABS plastics. Wilkes is one among only a few universities offering this capabilities.Lab work teaches students to machine their own parts, learn repair skills and design better parts to prevent product failure.

- Keystone Automation, collaborates with our lab to developABS plastic and aluminum surgical cutter tools for use in the university’s robotics lab.
- Students apply stress and strain theory toward choosing different fastening and welding techniques.
- Student projects include producing university campus signs in large batches through CNC programming. Other projects enable students to cut their own electronic circuit boards apply new technology to improve manufacturing techniques, durability, cost efficiencies of portable metal cabinets.
- In our Mini-Baha Program sponsored by the Society of Automotive Engineers, students develop skills in chasis, suspension, motor design. They also learn a variety of welding techniques.
- Four different welding processes – arc welding (stick), mig, , tig (tongsten inert gas) and spot welding.
- Plasma Cutter – electrical arc with hot forced air cuts faster and more efficient for precision cuts.
- Drill presses
