October is Manufacturing Month, a time to spread awareness of all the great career options in manufacturing. You can help spark an interest for your students by participating in a Manufacturing Month event.
This year, Metalcraft of Mayville & LAB Midwest are putting on a special event for schools for just this purpose. Metalcraft is best known for the Scag brand, but they also contract manufacture for Fortune 500 companies in construction, agriculture, military, material handling and outdoor power equipment industries.
At this event, students will get a firsthand look at careers in advanced manufacturing. The tour of the Metalcraft facility includes FANUC paint robots, FANUC robotic welders, and an inside view on how Scag equipment is assembled.
Schools will then get hands-on demonstrations for skills in Industry 4.0 technology, robotics, welding, powder coating and more from LAB Midwest.
This event is sponsored by the CCAI Wisconsin chapter and is free for all schools. A toy donation for Kids2Kids toy drive is encouraged.
