December 2016 
As this newsletter hits your inbox, we know that many of you are preparing for winter break. Before you go, we have a few quick tips and reminders designed to make your return in 2017 easy and hassle free. Be sure to check our "Year End Reminders" section for quick tips. 

As we prepare for the holidays, we'd like to highlight that Moss will be closed December 26 and January 2 so that our employees can spend time celebrating the season with family and friends. 

While 2016 winds down, we are looking toward the future. We want to thank you for our continued relationship. We look forward to serving you in 2017, and beyond!

Year End Reminders
As 2016 winds down, we have a few reminders that will help you make 2017 an even more successful year:
  • 3D Printing - start the calendar year fully stocked! December is an ideal time to order filament and consumables. 
  • Welding - Take advantage of the slower time during winter break to review online curriculum. Have you checked out the 30 day free trial for U/LINC curriculum from Lincoln Electric? 
  • Robotics - Consider spending year-end budgets to enhance existing programs with Vision Light Kits, Battery Packages, Pill Sorting Packages, and more. 
  • FANUC Robotics - Don't let batteries die. A quick tip from FANUC: check and replace the batteries in controllers before leaving for winter (and summer) break. 
  • Schedule Maintenance - equipment in your classroom sees a lot of use, and would often benefit from regular maintenance checks. Moss has a certified technician that can assist with maintenance questions or routine checks. Protect your investment with regular maintenance. 
  • Project planning - Often construction/remodeling plans take shape over the winter months. We can assist with design and planning services with our partnerships through Interior Concepts and WB Furniture/Green Mfg
