Held on October 6, 2017, National Manufacturing Day celebrates the incredible achievements manufacturers have made to revolutionize, streamline, and challenge the modern world. And, it’s now more important than ever to pay attention.
Unlike the Industrial Revolutions of the past, the Fourth Industrial Revolution is changing how we engage with the world across all industries, and it’s happening at unprecedented speeds. Manufacturers have made huge breakthroughs in our communicative capabilities and our ability to store and access data instantly from anywhere in the world.
While these achievements are incredible by themselves, the possibilities are exponentially multiplied as we apply them to innovative technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics, and 3D printing. With such groundbreaking progress happening daily, National Manufacturing Day is important not only as a celebration of these achievements, but also as a means to keep people informed and to give them the power to imagine what’s next.
So where does Fisher Unitech fit in?
As one of the world’s largest technology providers of 3D design software tools and 3D printers, we are on the forefront of innovation. With our products, companies can not only cut costs and streamline manufacturing processes, but they can also fundamentally revolutionize the way they create.
With any new technology, it’s hard to know what you don’t know. That’s why we’re dedicated to explaining why our tools have the power to change how manufacturing is done. From design to production, our software and printers can produce custom and complex designs, as well as offer flexibility and transformation to the prototyping process - all at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional methods. By upgrading your manufacturing processes, it’s possible that the costs of wasted resources or excess material could become a thing of the past. We also ensure that you can take full advantage of our products by offering SOLIDWORKS training courses and classes, both online and in person, to help with every step along the way.
The future of additive manufacturing
Our technology may be used someday in ways that we can’t even imagine now, from revolutionizing the medical field to building habitats for deep-space exploration. It is these possibilities that make outreach so important. With our world changing so rapidly, we need to not only keep up to date on advancements, but also to inspire and engage the next generation of visionaries.
The next manufacturers will be building the new face of the world as we know it - and we’re excited to see what they come up with. We need the creativity and ingenuity of the next generation to push this technology to its limits and explore its unlimited possibilities. With National Manufacturing Day, we hope to connect with the community and encourage young minds to get involved and see the transformative possibilities of the manufacturing industry. As we begin a new age of connectivity and creation, we want everyone to come along for the ride.
