On Friday, October 5, Machine Solutions hosted a Manufacturing Day event at their Jasper Tech Center. Seventy local high school students attended the event showcasing automation, robotics, and CNC programming. At the event, each student programmed their name into a plaque which was later cut on a CNC machine for the students to take home as a souvenir. Given the large turnout, Machine Solutions hopes to hold this event annually. Machine Solutions also plans to continue their involvement with local schools in an effort to have more students consider manufacturing careers as a viable and rewarding option.
A special thanks to Biesse America, Mereen-Johnson, Omga, Pillar, and IN-Mac for their support in this event.
