HPI To Host Manufacturing Day Event for Students and Educators

Manufacturing Day is nationally recognized every year on the first Friday in October and is used to showcase the reality of modern manufacturing by encouraging thousands of companies and educational institutions around the nation to open their doors to students, parents, teachers, and community leaders.

Although Manufacturing Day falls on October 4th this year, Hoosier Pattern is opening its doors to students, educators, school officials, and local government officials to tour our facility and see what goes on day to day behind the doors at HPI. Guest will be able to check out each area of the shop as well as be able to talk with employees and ask any questions they may have.

Multiple CNC centers on the shop floor will be running and the 3D sand printers will be printing job boxes in real-time. There will also be a finished job box with 3D sand printed keychain molds inside. Visitors will be able to extract their own molds, clean them at a cleaning station and then take them to be poured here in the shop and be able to take a custom keychain home with them.

When visiting local schools and talking to local students, we always ask students what they think of when they hear the word “manufacturing”. We get answers like “dirty”, “low paying”, and “bad hours”. Hoosier Pattern strongly believes in encouraging the younger generation to explore careers in manufacturing and take every opportunity to show these students that those stereotypes are just simply not true.  We encourage all students and educators to join us on Wednesday, October 2nd at Hoosier Pattern as we help inspire the next generation of manufacturers.  

If you are an educator and want to get your class here for this event please contact Alyssa Corral at alyssa@hoosierpattern.com or directly at 260-706-4144
