Project One – Establish Onsite PCB Printing Capability

The first internship project at SIL was to establish a Voltera-one PCB printer on-site capability. The Voltera-one is a desktop machine that extrudes conductive ink onto blank substrate boards, allowing users to quickly develop circuit boards in-house after designing them.

Project Two – Design & Assemble a CNC Mill Cooling System

The second internship project at SIL was to establish a CNC Mill Cooling System.  The student researched and recommended a mist system.  Along with an Engineering Apprentice, the student designed and fabricated the CNC dust boot and mounting system.
