Miller Fabrication Solutions will offer free plant tours to the general public as part of its involvement in the national Manufacturing Day celebration on Friday, October 4. Tours will run every 30 minutes from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. EDT at its two Brookville, Pennsylvania locations, Sandy Lick and Maplevale.
Guests will be able to watch demonstrations of the fabrication of large metal parts, including robotic and manual welding, machining, painting, and mechanical assembly services. The company’s latest equipment additions, a pair of DMG Mori’s CMX 1100 V machines, will also be on display.
The Manufacturing Day activities at Miller will include a job fair for recent and future graduates and skilled workers, as well as an Oculus Virtual Reality (VR) simulation of Miller’s Sandy Lick headquarters.
Manufacturing Day is an annual celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. Started in 2012 and sponsored by the National Association of Manufacturers, the celebration invites members of the community across the country — including students, educators, business people, media, and politicians — to manufacturing facilities in a collective effort to educate visitors about manufacturing career opportunities and improve public awareness of the profession.
