The Southeastern Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SiMT) is located at Florence-Darlington Technical College. The institute provides training of employees in manufacturing processes, rapid prototyping, and 3D interactive productions. SiMT also has a conference center.

It’s an amazing place!  Here’s a bit of an introduction:

Welcome to the Southeastern Institute of Manufacturing and Technology…the SiMT

Imagine. Holding a full three-dimensional prototype in your hand when your new idea was simply a napkin sketch 24 hours before.
Imagine. The ability to train employees in your newest processes without interrupting operations putting them at risk in the manufacturing environment.
Imagine. The ability to compete with larger competitors in filling precision parts orders – without investing thousands in new equipment, personnel and processes.
Imagine. A place where you can conveniently host a large conference or trade show with all of the latest presentation methods.

By utilizing the vast resources of the SiMT, you can train employees in a 3-dimensional, virtual reality environment, reducing both expenses and exposure to accidents while markedly improving retention. You can bring products to market faster by employing the largest Additive Manufacturing resources in the Southeast. You can meet customer orders for parts and assemblies that exceed your normal capacities by outsourcing parts production to our Advanced Machining Center. And, you can host a successful users’ meeting or convention in our conference center and theater.

We provide world class services to businesses, organizations, educational institutions, entrepreneurs, inventors and government entities. Our clients include a diverse range of industries: NASCAR (Stuart-Haas racing), medical device developers, (Creativasc Medical, DeGen Medical), and research institutions (Medical University of South Carolina and the University of Alabama – Birmingham.) The SIMT provides access to emerging technologies for everyone from a startup in the Gould Business Incubator; to a tier one supplier for Honda of South Carolina; to major industries and corporations, such as Otis Elevator.
