MFG Day 2017
Manufacturing Day℠ is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers.
Stiles Machinery would like to invite local area students to participate in an educational experience featuring two informative plant tours of our HOMAG Machinery North America factory and our manufacturing technology showroom.
As the North American partner of the HOMAG Group- the world’s largest manufacturer of wood processing equipment, Stiles specializes in putting new technology and new thinking to work for manufacturers of all sizes. Through advanced production strategies and highly-automated machinery, Stiles is helping to reshape how manufacturing companies across the nation achieve success.
Visitors to Stiles’ Manufacturing Day tour will have the unique opportunity to see the latest manufacturing technology in action. Participating students and teachers will begin by experiencing how flat table CNC machining centers are built and assembled using a fishbone manufacturing flow layout at the HOMAG Machinery North America plant. From there, participants will take part in several interactive demonstrations through Stiles University’s Training Lab. During the demonstrations, students will experience how cutting-edge CNC technology is programmed and operated to produce Martin guitar bodies and other wood-based products.
We sincerely hope you will join us on October 5th to experience the exciting world of manufacturing today and how it is impacting the future.
Students of all ages are welcome. Visitors should plan to wear closed-toed shoes. All other safety equipment will be provided. A minimum of 90 minutes is recommended for the factory tours and showroom demonstrations.
