Metal cutting facility - now open!

Most schools in the Southern board having been making good use of the CNC facilities that are available to them, either on a loan basis or accessing the use of a machine based at Clounagh.  The Technology team are very proud and excited to announce the launch of a new facility - the Techsoft Plasmacut.  The procedure for machining is much the same as any TechSoft machine, either by producing a Techsoft 2D design file or importing a DXF from Solidworks or similar programme.  Now you can slice your way through mild steel, up to 6mm thick, with no more hassle than it took to slice through card on a vinyl cutter!
