LCCC SmartCIM 4.0

Laramie County Community College to Unveil New SmartCIM 4.0 from Intelitek

Community college will use the Computer Integrated Manufacturing training environment for multiple programs, including a planned robotics program

DERRY, NH and LARAMIE, WY – (April 8, 2024) – On April 12, Laramie County Community College (LCCC) in Cheyenne, Wyo., will unveil the newest addition to its Advanced Manufacturing and Materials Center (AMMC) the SmartCIM 4.0 system. Developed by Intelitek, a worldwide CTE leader, SmartCIM 4.0 is a modular training environment featuring industrial working components for computer-integrated manufacturing education. The unveiling event will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the LCCC’s Career and Technical Building.

Event attendees will include LCCC President Joe Schaffer, Ph.D. as well as other administrators, LCCC’s board of trustees, Laramie County commissioners, members of the local economic development committee, Intelitek’s reseller in the regions High Country Technology Consultants LLC and representatives from Intelitek. The college acquired SmartCIM 4.0 with funds from Gov. Mark Gordon’s Wyoming Innovation Project Initiative, and members of the governor’s office are also invited.

The SmartCIM 4.0 system is designed for advanced manufacturing programs in which students are learning to be operators, installers, and maintainers of industrial systems. The system consists of sophisticated interconnected manufacturing configurations with several fundamental components such as production workstations, an automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS), assembly stations, and quality control stations. The components are linked by a continuous-loop conveyor and pallet tracking system, a central management control station, a TCP/IP communication network, and Intelitek’s OpenMES software. The system has been customized to the institution’s specific needs.

AMMC Manager David Curry, M.Ed., stated that SmartCIM 4.0 is part of the AMMC’s answer to manufacturers’ concerns about Cheyenne’s capacity to provide a trained workforce. “One of the charges I received when I became manager was to introduce LCCC and southeastern Wyoming to Industry 4.0,” he said. In addition to LCCC’s machining program, Curry plans to use the SmartCIM 4.0 system in LCCC’s welding program, electrical program, and a future robotics program.

Two AMMC instructors have gone through training for SmartCIM 4.0. Curry recounted being impressed by the level of training support. The trainers left behind contact information so instructors could reach out for support and planned to return after a month or so to see if there were any questions or hitches. “That’s the first time I’ve encountered an organization that was willing to make that return trip,” remarked Curry.

Members of the public will be able to view the AMMC’s SmartCIM 4.0 system on Manufacturing Day, October 4, 2024. For more information about SmartCIM 4.0., go to
