FMC Technologies Donates 3D Printing Equipment to School of Engineering

 

The School of Engineering at Penn State Behrend has installed a 3D printer, a high-tech system that gives engineers and product designers the ability to produce in real form virtually any shape they can create with computer software. The machine, which was donated to the college by FMC Technologies Measurement Solutions, is worth more than $40,000.
