COVID-19 UPDATE: In light of the current environment, Tormach has decided to temporarily pause our on-site workshops due to COVID-19. We will revisit this later in 2020. Our workshops are taught by CNC machinists and Engineering professionals at our Training center near Madison, WI. Class sizes are small and training is hands-on for both machining and CAM programming.
To sign up for an upcoming workshop, first choose a class and then pick a month from the available class list.
Adam Brunner was formally a Technology Education teacher and is excited to bring his experience in CAD, engineering principles, and pedagogical practices to the CNC fundamentals class. Even though he hails from the East coast, he has made himself apart of the Tormach family working as a Technical Support Specialist; helping develop and revise documentation, and creating YouTube content for Tormach's different channels. In his free time, Adam enjoys spending time with his family, being a maker, and cooking new meals.
Matt Coppola was raised in Madison, WI, where he grew up playing hockey. In his youth, he was proud to be checked into the boards at Madison’s Hartmeyer Ice Arena. He attended Madison College for Machine Tool Technics, where he was regularly checked into cinder block classrooms. He served a Wisconsin Mold Making and Model Making Apprenticeship in Wisconsin’s Driftless region, a lovely area of the state where he excelled in being checked into gently rolling hills. Today, Matt really enjoys the diversity of skills required in Tormach’s Technical Support Department and loves to learn about the new products Tormach releases. He will share Tool and Die industry and experience with students and answer their specific machining process questions. And he’s finally found a place where nobody cross checks or high sticks him. He hasn’t even found a penalty box at Tormach. Matt rarely, if ever, wears a helmet to work.
