In celebration of Manufacturing Day 2017, Balluff will open its doors on Friday, October 6th to more than 160 students and community members. This will be Balluff's third Manufacturing Day event at their Florence, KY location. The local community is invited to experience Balluff and learn more about modern manufacturing and automation.

On October 6th, attendees will get to take part in several hands-on automation learning labs, tours of the facility, and product and technology demonstrations in order to experience the high tech environment of modern manufacturing. "We've had visitors from 5 weeks old to 75 years old visit our facility during Manufacturing day events," says Will Healy III, Marketing Management Director, "the tours and hands-on activities are always a very positive experience for the attendees and our employees alike."

Manufacturing Day has become a national collective effort for manufacturers, employers, and educators to open their doors and demonstrate modern manufacturing technology. The event is also a way for manufacturers to define the many opportunities that exist in today's manufacturing environments and why more individuals should consider pathways into manufacturing careers. Healy adds, "It's great to see the attendees end their visit with a passion for automation & a new respect for modern manufacturing."
