Manufacturing Jobs for Veterans

Shop Floor Automations recently attended an event where
an open house was held for an organization called Workshops for Warriors.

Military veterans from all over the USA come to Workshops for
Warriors in San Diego so they can gain nationally recognized
certifications and get careers in the manufacturing industry.

Get a DNC Safety Net

It goes without saying that your machines are your biggest asset on
your shop floor. New employees can be trained, generators can be used
when the power goes out – the list of safe alternatives goes on and on.

What happens when the DNC goes down? There are numerous ways this can
happen, but instead of running nightmare scenarios in your head, how
about a backup plan instead?
