Helical shared in the donation of $120,000 to the Machine Technology Program at Allan Hancock Community College. The program provides students with a full range of machining courses. Students learn skills of machine technology and using Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines. Many of these techniques are critical when making flexible couplings and machined springs both that utilize the HELI-CAL ® Flexure. They also learn the properties of different metals, how to interpret blueprints, and follow the process of planning, creating, and finishing a machined product with precise specifications.
Allan Hancock College was founded in 1920, and is located in Santa Maria CA. Most of the students who attend Hancock College are from the local area, striving to complete the first two years of a bachelor’s degree, earn an associate degree, or preparing for a new career. There are approximately 11,500 students that attend the college per semester, with about 1,300 faculty and staff. The California Community College system serves more than 2.9 million students and represents the largest system of higher education in the world.
Helical is proud to support the local education programs on the central coast. Many of our experienced employees attend Hancock for further training courses. Helical hopes to continue to support the local college programs for years to come.
