I just learned that Smalley Steel Ring Co., a manufacturer of retaining rings and wave springs, has donated an OMAX 2652 abrasive waterjet machining center to the College of Lake County (CLC) in Grayslake, IL. The school will integrate this midsize, cantilevered machine, the college’s first, into several courses including fabrication, wire EDM and welding.

This is another example of businesses supporting their community college and ensuring the school’s manufacturing programs remain relevant to the surrounding businesses. Great job Smalley!
