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 RobotWorx, Honda, FANUC Robotics, Lincoln Electric, and Yaskawa Motoman to introduce industrial robotics operation and advanced manufacturing skills to the central Ohio area.
Companies like RobotWorx, 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.
