MANUFACTURING DAY 2015

DMDII participated in Manufacturing Day, a celebration of modern manufacturing intended to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. The goal of this day, sponsored by NAM, The Manufacturing Institute and NIST: MEP, was to raise the profile for manufacturing careers and encourage students to think about the field differently.
Students had a chance to tour a manufacturing shop floor of the future focused on the use of data analytics, smart/communicative machines and the integration of robotics and machine tools. As our R&D Director likes to say, our manufacturing shop floor represents the most state of the art technology and serves as the hub of innovation for the mid-west. Our staff set up multiple stimulating activities that students engaged in throughout the day in hopes to enhance their knowledge on digital manufacturing in America today.
