Balluff will open its Kentucky-based doors Oct. 7 to host its second Manufacturing Day event, inviting students and the local community to experience Balluff and learn more about modern manufacturing and automation.
According to Balluff, the event will include several hands-on automation learning labs, tours of the facility and the interactive Automation in Action Demo Van and product and technology demonstrations designed for visitors.
"We are excited to be hosting our second Manufacturing Day Event and opening our doors to the community and students of all ages," said Tony Canonaco, president and CEO of Balluff, Inc. "Last year, over 100 people attended the event and we hope for an even bigger turnout this year." Canonaco adds, "Manufacturing plays an important role in our community and we want to take an active role in educating students to help develop the next generation of automation professionals."
Manufacturing Day has become a national collective effort for manufacturers, employers and educators to open their doors and demonstrate modern manufacturing technology. The event is also a way for manufacturers to define the many opportunities that exist in today's manufacturing environments and why more individuals should consider pathways into manufacturing careers.
