National Manufacturing Day

Oct 4, 2019

On the first Friday of October companies and communities across the country celebrate modern manufacturing in their own creative way during National Manufacturing Day. This holiday provides an excellent opportunity for manufacturers to open their doors and educate and discuss common automation misconceptions. Furthermore, it is a great way to network with people in the robotics field.

On the first Fri­day in Octo­ber of every year, com­pa­nies and com­mu­ni­ties across the coun­try come togeth­er to cel­e­brate mod­ern man­u­fac­tur­ing dur­ing Nation­al MFG Day. This hol­i­day was designed to inform and inspire the next gen­er­a­tion of man­u­fac­tur­ers; it pro­vides an oppor­tu­ni­ty for man­u­fac­tur­ers to open their doors and address com­mon mis­con­cep­tions. Man­u­fac­tur­ing Day helps empow­er man­u­fac­tur­ers as they come togeth­er, net­work, and ensure the ongo­ing pros­per­i­ty of the whole indus­try by tak­ing charge of the pub­lic image of manufacturing. 

Man­u­fac­tur­ing Day first start­ed in 2012 by the Found­ing Part­ner Fab­ri­ca­tors and Man­u­fac­tur­ers Asso­ci­a­tion, Inter­na­tion­al. Oth­er orga­ni­za­tions that have helped to grow this nation­al day of cel­e­bra­tion include the Nation­al Asso­ci­a­tion of Man­u­fac­tur­ers (NAM), the Man­u­fac­tur­ing Insti­tute (MI), and the Nation­al Insti­tute of Stan­dards and Tech­nol­o­gy’s (NIST) Hollings Man­u­fac­tur­ing Exten­sion Part­ner­ship (MEP). They have con­tin­ued to cre­ate events from coast to coast that inspire oth­ers to learn, invest in, and pur­sue automation.

Robots​.com has always made an effort to con­nect with the com­mu­ni­ty and share their pas­sion for robot­ic automa­tion with oth­ers, espe­cial­ly ris­ing stu­dents. To cel­e­brate Nation­al Man­u­fac­tur­ing Day this year, we will be attend­ing Made In Mar­i­on expo to cel­e­brate local man­u­fac­tur­ers with the com­mu­ni­ty. At the event we will give a small robot demon­stra­tion, inform the com­mu­ni­ty of what we do here at Robots​.com, and con­nect with oth­er man­u­fac­tur­ers in the area. This expo will be filled with var­i­ous indus­tri­al demon­stra­tions on cur­rent STEM careers and pre­views of the advanced tech­nol­o­gy avail­able in man­u­fac­tur­ing facil­i­ties today. 

At the Made In Mar­i­on Expo, vis­i­tors can see var­i­ous demon­stra­tions and vis­it infor­ma­tion booths to learn more about the area man­u­fac­tur­ing com­pa­nies. Make sure to come out and vis­it this free event on Octo­ber 22nd from 9am-6pm at the Mar­i­on Vet­er­ans Memo­r­i­al Col­i­se­um, 220 E Fair­ground St, Mar­i­on. See you there!
