On June 23, 2023, a group of students from the Job Corps Center in Exeter, Rhode Island, visited Bel Air Finishing in North Kingstown to learn about Mass Finishing. Bel Air Finishing is a leading provider of mass finishing services, and they were eager to share their knowledge with the next generation of engineers.
The students were given a tour of the Bel Air Finishing facility, and they learned about the different types of Mass Finishing processes that are used. They also had the opportunity to try their hand at some of the processes themselves.
In addition to learning about the different Mass Finishing processes, the students also asked about pricing of equipment, maintenance, automation, and about future job opportunities in the industry. Steve Alviti Sr. was happy to answer their questions, and he encouraged them to pursue a career in Mass Finishing.
This visit was a great example of how community outreach can benefit both the students and the businesses involved. Bel Air Finishing was able to share their knowledge with the next generation of engineers, and the students were able to gain valuable hands-on experience.
