Why You Should Read This
This article is important because we currently have a skills gap so large in engineering and manufacturing that it’s classified as a “National Security Threat”! We need more people to join the evolutionary industries of engineering and manufacturing!
A National Security concern is legitimate and we need the next generation of kids (and their parents) to get EXCITED about manufacturing once again! Let’s be equally as proud of those who make the planes, as those who fly them.
Let’s realize that without engineers, doctors don’t have the equipment they need to help people. A lack of farmers requires engineers to get creative so that the world can eat. Without manufacturing engineers, there are no cars, computers, houses, phones, etc!
Trade schools are NOT secondary to traditional universities. They are equal and very much needed! Factories are not the dark, dirty, smelly places of old.
Robots Are Not Stealing Jobs, They Are Creating Them!
In an effort to reduce this massive skills gap, robotics and automation have helped ease the pains that come along with an abundance of work and a lack of a skilled workforce. There’s been a misunderstanding over the years that robots are taking jobs, however, that’s simply untrue.
Robots replace the mundane work, the repetitive work, the dangerous work…and allow us to get back to the creativity we LOVE! Automation allows us to go home to our families at night and still produce three shifts worth of parts.
There is a 400,000 person skills gap in the welding industry alone. Robots can help us weld, paint, pack, load, move, and so much more! And the best part is…robots need people to keep them moving, maintained, programmed, and productive!
However, robots aren’t the only answer. Manufacturing can also utilize Cobots, full pallet change systems, bar feeders, CMM machines, and other intuitive adaptations that allow manufacturing in the USA to compete globally! Making creative, high-quality, accurate parts, while remaining efficient.
Meet Tony Gunn, The Advocate for Job-Creating Robots
Let’s get to know the man who has brought to the fore the awareness of Robots creating jobs.
His name is Tony Gunn and he started his career on a shop floor running a simple press machine over 20 years ago. Through the years, He’s listened intently, gaining knowledge, insight, and then applying the best parts of this information to his own working style.
During Gunn’s 20+ years in manufacturing, he’s had the immense pleasure to travel to over 50 countries learning how business is conducted on a global scale. Adapting to change, understanding unique business structures, and stabilizing relationships in a competitive industry has been educational, inspirational, and eye-opening.
Working directly with lead engineers at many major companies around the world has kept Tony Gunn on the front lines of creativity and technological advancements, as well as, providing a constant reminder of humility and gratitude in an ever-evolving world.
Tony’s hope is that this short article might be a small pebble that’s tossed into the ocean of information and inspires a small ripple of interest and research. Take a look at the attached links, connect with him on socials, take a listen to his podcast, and watch some of the powerful videos created by the MTDCNC team.
Mr. Gunn hopes to see you soon… in the incredible world of manufacturing and engineering!
All the best,
Tony Gunn and The MTDCNC Team
