Manufacturing has transformed into an exciting environment with advanced equipment and technology driven by automation and robotics. Today’s workforce is challenged to accelerate skills and knowledge to meet the growing needs of manufacturing.
As a 2011 study by Manpower reveals, globally, one in three (34 percent) employers reports experiencing difficulties filling positions due to lack of available talent. Industry continues to implement industrial robots to achieve higher productivity and quality, skilled robotic jobs continue to grow. To resolve and address this issue, Lincoln Electric is focused on developing programs and solutions to support education and industry to assist in bridging the skills gap.
“A Robotic Education Cell offers the opportunity to teach skills required for advanced manufacturing today in a variety of environments, from a classroom to a lab to a recruitment event”, states Deanna Postlethwaite, Business Unit Manager at Lincoln Electric.
The International Federation of Robotics identified that in the next eight years, projections show robots will create 2.5 million jobs
“Due to the forecasted expansion in robotic positions, it is imperative to ensure we educate the workforce to meet the skills manufacturing and fabrication need today and in the future to keep US manufacturing productive and competing on a global scale.”
