Amada America Inc. entrusts fiber laser, press brake to Workshops for Warriors
Amada America, Buena Park, Calif., has entrusted an ENSIS
3015 AJ fiber laser and an HG 8025 press brake to San Diego-based Workshops for Warriors (WFW), a nonprofit school providing veterans, wounded warriors, and transitioning service
members free training and nationally recognized industry credentials in the advanced manufacturing industry.
Beginning next semester, WFW will incorporate this equipment into a new, intensive course of instruction for advanced
students. All students who participate in the class will earn nationally recognized credentials from Amada.
“A fiber laser cutting system is a completely different animal
than a CO₂ laser and is a quantum leap forward in technology,”
said Hernán Luis y Prado, founder and CEO of WF W. “This most
recent entrustment allows our students to enhance their training on the latest manufacturing technology available today.
These newer machines replace the FOM2 3015 NT CO2 laser
and FMB 3613G NT press brake that Amada entrusted to the
school in 2013.
