AET Labs Completes Major Installations at Mass. Institutions

Equipment installation at Attleboro High School

Essex, MA – AET Labs announced it completed the equipment installation for new technical labs at three Massachusetts educational institutions coordinating with architects, construction companies, and school administration. In each project, the company provided end-to-end lab support contributing to design layouts, proposing and procuring equipment, providing equipment specs, centralizing equipment deliveries, commissioning equipment, and training instructors.

The Engine MIT is a business incubator for high-tech startups with over 150,000sf of lab, office, and industrial space. AET Labs worked closely with The Engine team to outfit the space with the latest advanced manufacturing technologies across a machine shop, prototyping lab, and additive manufacturing lab, which features multiple industrial 3D printers capable of producing full-color, high-strength materials including industrial thermoplastics and even metals.

The Foundry is a self-sustaining center of creativity providing space, programs, and workforce education for the Kendall Square community. AET Labs outfitted this space with innovative equipment for its wood shop, fabrics lab, and prototyping lab. The wood shop includes a cutting-edge table saw that stops the blade in milliseconds upon sensing any human contact.

Attleboro High School’s new state-of-the-art facility contains 14 vocational shops. AET Labs has been part of this project from the start, collaborating with KBA, Consigli, and school administration. The AET Labs team has centralized all details and logistics related to hundreds of items across the 14 shops, coordinating deliveries, installing and assembling equipment, and providing training to instructors.

AET Labs will be back at each location to provide service and ongoing professional development to each of the labs.
