ACAWT Exhibits Mobile CNC Technology at SkillsUSA
  On April 25 & 26, 2012, at the Birmingham AL convention center several thousand Alabama career tech students with their teachers attended a two day event called SkillsUSA. ACAWT was there with the Mobile CNC Trailer, ShopBot Buddy CNC router, and the Trotec Laser. There were students lined up for upwards of two hours each day waiting to request what they wanted, watched it being drawing on a laptop, and then produced on the CNC router so they could obtain their own custom plaque. There were numerous teachers wanting to sign up for this summers CNC routing for a teachers course allowing them to have a ShopBot Buddy delivered to their school for several weeks during the next school year.
