Technology Education Concepts, Inc. (TEC), experienced provider of design-to-manufacturing solutions and teaching labs, announced it has been selected by Roland® DGA to service academic customers in New York State.
Since 1986, Roland has been at the forefront of 3D fabrication, delivering tens of thousands milling machines for a wide variety of applications, from subtractive rapid prototyping, rapid manufacturing, hobby, craft and jewelry making, to producing precision medical and dental prosthetics. Roland desktop and benchtop milling machines enable students, designers and engineers to produce highly accurate, functional parts and snap-fit prototypes quickly and inexpensively from a wide range of materials and software. Roland’s new monoFab™ Series is a revolutionary concept in desktop fabrication tools that combines the additive capabilities of 3D printing with the subtractive capabilities of milling, giving students and teachers even more 3D design choices to bring their imaginations to life. Roland products add dimension to STEM instruction by enabling students to apply their knowledge of science, technology, engineering and math toward the design and production of real-world products.
“We are very excited to expand our coverage of Roland DGA products into New York,” says Jeff Hapgood, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at TEC. “TEC’s knowledge of the educational marketplace and our commitment to customer service and support is the key to our long history of success. The Roland DGA product line has been a proven product for us in secondary and post-secondary schools throughout New England, and we feel confident about delivering this precision prototyping equipment to classrooms, fab labs, and engineering labs to schools in New York.”
TEC’s booth at the New York State Technology and Engineering Educators’ Association (NYSTEEA) Conference in March this year will feature Roland equipment allowing educators to see it first-hand.
