INDEPENDENCE, KANSAS -

Independence, Kansas, February 19, 2016 – The Fab Lab at Independence Community College (ICC) has received a generous donation from Hugo’s Industrial Supply in the form of a 48 inch industrial printer.

The new printer is a Mutoh, large format printer with a built-in contour vinyl cutter. This will allow the Fab Lab to produce large custom-shaped print jobs. The printer uses all the common media plus an exterior vinyl, which means producing exterior banners a possibility.

“Donations by community members such as this one from the Hugo’s are very helpful in keeping everything current, up and running,” said Jim Correl, Fab Lab director. “We strive to keep the Fab Lab at ICC state-of-the-art and still keep the experience at a very affordable price.”

Hugo's Industrial Supply is a staple in Independence, Kansas. The family-owned business sells cleaning, office and packaging supplies. Hugo's also serves as a FedEx Authorized Shipping Center.

Community access to the Fab Lab at the college is available through a membership structure.  An individual can have access to all the creation, fabrication and communication equipment for $100 per year. 

Fab Lab ICC is a member of the International Fab Lab network initiated by MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) in 2009. 

At the time Fab Lab ICC opened in October 2014, there were 200 Fab Labs world-wide in the network.  Today there are more than 500.  Part of the International charter is about making the Fab Lab experience available to the broad community.
