Manufacturing Day is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. Every year, thousands of manufacturers around the country open their doors to inspire young people in helping them pursue careers in manufacturing and engineering.
Manufacturing Day is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. It is an incredible opportunity to showcase the amazing work manufacturers do on a daily basis, educate students, teachers, community members, and parents to show how integral STEM courses (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) are in manufacturing industry to contribute in today’s economy.
DMW volunteered this year to participate in this great achievement. Thirty inspired students along with faculty from a Detroit High School arrived at DMW to walk through the day to day manufacturing process.
DMW Taylor fabrication shop was set up to demonstrate practical examples of automotive assembly plant conveyor products and equipments, Students were guided with professionals through product fabrication processes from raw steel to finished product ready for shipping. They all showed great interest in the tour with many questions. They were also treated to a tour through our engineering department.
After a brief lunch we broke them out into ten teams of three to build a mini version of a flat top belt conveyor made from foam board. They had to reverse engineer from a prototype constructed by Al Chaffin (Plant Manager). Larry Cosme (Quality Control Manager) selected one student to work with him in the Quality Process. The students were highly engaged in this practical assignment. Their minds were deep into critical thinking, problem solving and applied physics. In the end Larry and his QA student did final inspections. All conveyors matched the prototype, ran and were approved.
The students really enjoyed their day at DMW and have asked to come back next year.
It was an honor and pleasure to host such a great learning experience for our future Manufacturing generation.
