RAMTEC brings needed robotic skills to Marion

Oct 20, 2013

The Robotics and Advanced Manufacturing Technology Education Collaborative has arrived in Marion, Ohio. RAMTEC helps introduce robotics to students while also providing a hands-on experience for better learning.


RAMTEC, which stands for Robot­ics & Advanced Man­u­fac­tur­ing Tech­nol­o­gy Edu­ca­tion Col­lab­o­ra­tive, opened recent­ly in Mar­i­on, Ohio, in part­ner­ship with Mar­i­on Tech­ni­cal Col­lege, Tri-Rivers Career Cen­ter, and The Ohio State Uni­ver­si­ty at Mar­i­on to bring need­ed robot­ic man­u­fac­tur­ing skills to the area’s residents.

The three schools list­ed above worked togeth­er with robot­ic com­pa­nies like Robots​.com, Hon­da, Fanuc Robot­ics, Lin­coln Elec­tric, and Yaskawa Motoman to intro­duce indus­tri­al robot­ics oper­a­tion and advanced man­u­fac­tur­ing skills to the cen­tral Ohio area.

Com­pa­nies like Robots​.com, which is based in Mar­i­on, Ohio, under­stand that man­u­fac­tur­ing skills are sore­ly lack­ing in the job mar­ket today. While old­er gen­er­a­tions saw man­u­fac­tur­ing as a viable means to make a liv­ing and sup­port a fam­i­ly, today’s stu­dents are more focused on jobs out­side of the man­u­fac­tur­ing sec­tor. That leaves a huge hole in the hir­ing pool when man­u­fac­tur­ers need to hire mate­r­i­al han­dlers, assem­blers and welders to com­plete their production.

RAMTEC is ready to pre­pare peo­ple of all ages for the future that will con­sist of intel­li­gent machines, con­nect­ed sys­tems, and nec­es­sary peo­ple to help oper­ate these robot­ics. This indus­try is expect­ed to expand ten­fold over the next 20 years, so know­ing the basics of robot­ics will be extreme­ly help­ful and beneficial.
