Twenty-three students from Nash Community College’s Electronics Engineering, Electrical Systems & Industrial Systems Technology programs recently toured the Keihin Carolina System Technology manufacturing facility in Tarboro.
Keihin Test Engineer Dan Baugh coordinated the visit which introduced students to the manufacturing processes required to build the engine control module used in Honda automobiles.
Keihin operates eight manufacturing lines that produce 10,000 engine control modules per day. Each line is completely automated giving students a bird’s eye view of the robotics, controls and testing procedures performed as the engine control modules progress from start to finish. At the end of the line, the modules are wrapped, packaged and prepared for distribution to Honda automobile manufacturing sites worldwide.
