Today’s manufacturing floor is a fusion of complex technology, including PLC’s, Drives, Motors, Pumps, Controllers, Mechanical Systems, Automation and Robotics. With the help of LAB Midwest, world-class manufacturers are delivering technical skills learning to their employees, creating a workforce advantage that is enabling them to gap their competitors in key areas such as recruiting, retention, innovation, uptime, yield, throughput and efficiency.


Welding Skills remain in very high deman and provide fantastic pathways to entry level and advanced manufacturing jobs. With the right curriculum, virtual reality sysstems and training equipment the investment of time required to train a learner on necessary skills can be reduced by half.


A virtually endless variety of products are manufactured using Computer Numeric Control (CNC) technology. Mills, Lathes, Plasma Cutters, Tube Benders and Wire Formers are just a few examples of equipment controlled using CNC. Equipment Operators, CNC Programmers and Machinists all require specialized skills provided via the right curriculum and training equipment.


Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) are the computers that drive manufacturing and team members who can operate, program and troubleshoot them are incredibly valuable. LAB Midwest offers unparalleled systems, equipment and eLearning solutions that will equip your team members with the right combination of PLC realated skills and knowlege.


The reduction of the seven deadly wastes through the implementation and use of Lean Tools can make the difference between an average manufacturing operation and a world class one. LAB Midwest offers eLearning tools to familiarize your team members across the organization with Lean Manufacturing concepts and practical understanding.


LAB Midwest offers an eLearning solution for virtually every industrial and manufacturing skill. eLearning has evolved at a lighting fast pace and now includes the delivery of theory in a fashion that maintains the learners attention and skills building through performing learned skills in a virtual environment. Assessments completed prior to introducing a learning to a new course ensure that learners begin their training at the endpoint of their current skills and knowlege, resulting in learning that takes place at maximum efficiency.
