35 Students majoring in Wood Technology and the Expand program at High Tech, received an opportunity to tour the facility at the Triangle Manufacturing Company in Upper Saddle River on Monday April 11th.
Mr. Zachary Bolich (instructor of Wood Technology) and Mrs. Linda Digiacomo (Expand Coordinator) wanted to expose students to the different aspects relating to manufacturing precision components for the biomedical industry, as well as the numerous career opportunities available in this diverse field of work.
Mr. Bolich and Mrs. Digiacomo feel it is vital for students to see the correlation between what they are learning in the classroom, and industry practice and process.
At the start of the tour, we learned about triangles' humble beginnings, and how they got to where they are today.
Next, students got a brief understanding of the life of the engineers. They showed us some current projects, how they develop ideas and parts. They also passed around components that Triangle developed to aid Dr’s during brain surgeries.
We also toured the shop floor, where we spoke with employees, saw demonstrations of machines, and got to hear about the day-to-day life of the machinist working there.
Triangle has always been a student favorite, and we look forward to going again next year.
