STEM Education Supported with Seegrid Industrial Robots

STEM Education Supported with Seegrid Industrial Robots, as new generation steps into the workforce

 
PRLog - May 22, 2012 - The new generation of workforce expects high-technology in their life and workplace.  This new generation thrives from challenge and wants to be working with robots and computers.  Seegrid has seen robotic education grow already through STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education.  FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) celebrates the achievement in STEM education through robotics tournaments.  Seegrid recently had the opportunity to support STEM education by awarding a Pittsburgh high school student a robotics education scholarship at a FIRST competition.  Seegrid is committed to investing in young people and as the leader in robotics continues to innovate and provide products that create jobs.
Seegrid Corp., the leader in Robotic Industrial Trucks, announced industrial robots are creating more jobs in warehousing and manufacturing facilities.  The Material Handling Industry of America stated, “U.S. manufacturing has been one of the few bright spots of the recovery, restoring 489,000 jobs since the beginning of 2010.”
David Heilman, Chief Administrative Officer at Seegrid, said “Our customers are growing and innovating by using robots to increase facility productivity and efficiency to become more profitable, thus expanding their operations and adding more jobs.  Robots are the high-tech tool companies are using to increase profits and grow their business.”  
The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) released a report regarding manufacturing migrating back to the U.S. In the report, Harold L. Sirkin, a BCG senior partner said, “Companies are realizing that the economics of manufacturing are swinging in favor of the U.S., for goods to be sold both at home and to major export markets.” BCG partner Michael Zinser shared, “This survey shows that companies are coming to the conclusion surprisingly fast that the U.S. is becoming more competitive when the total costs of manufacturing are accounted for.”
Seegrid has recognized the economic change in manufacturing with the increased demand for driverless industrial robots to transport goods horizontally without wire, tape, laser or other costly automated guided vehicle (AGVs) systems.  Seegrid’s industrial robots are manufactured in America and support American manufacturing and warehousing companies— keeping America at the forefront of innovation and technology.  
Based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Seegrid Corp. (www.seegrid.com) brings robotic vision-guided technology to the material handling industry. Seegrid offers solutions that optimize workflow processes by increasing productivity and reducing costs, creating economic and operational advantages.
