The manufacturing industry, just like many other industries in today’s quickly-shifting marketplace, has been confronting uncertainties in the face of digitization and new customer expectations. The industry has reported that the lack of skilled labor is a major problem. There are numerous cases where both low skill-level and high skill-level jobs are available. These jobs include line workers, machine operators, CNC/robot programmers, CAD part, tool & fixture designers, machine maintenance, and many more. But, there are no skilled candidates available to fill these jobs. Moreover, the manufacturing industry would certainly be devastated without these skilled workers and major losses would befall on overall production and revenue.
To tackle this challenge, Axsys is working with local governments to understand what form of assistance is available for companies to train their employees or potential employees. Besides this, it is informing manufacturers of these programs and guiding them throughout the process of applying for and collecting the funds available. The company is also working closely with middle schools, secondary schools, ISDNs, community colleges, and universities to keep them updated with the latest technology. At the same time, it is ensuring that their training labs have the most up-to-date computers, software, and machine technologies. Axsys offers free CAD/CAM programming classes for displaced workers looking to move into the digital manufacturing world.
