Precipart to Host National Manufacturing Day on October 7th
National Manufacturing Day at Precipart
Manufacturing Day is a nationwide celebration of modern manufacturing with a mission to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. As part of an ongoing company effort to raise awareness of today’s manufacturing environment and the outstanding career opportunities in the field, Precipart will again host students, job seekers and community members on National Manufacturing Day on October 7, 2016.

Last year on Manufacturing Day, Precipart hosted ninth and tenth graders studying manufacturing at Wyandanch High School as part of a P-Tech (Pathways in Technology, backed by IBM and CUNY) grant that supports their journey towards a degree from New York City College of Technology. Students from BOCES Eastern Long Island Academy of Applied Technology were also in attendance, along with regional news crews covering the event.
At last year’s event, guests viewed the high precision custom gears and electromechanical assemblies we design and manufacture at Precipart, and saw first-hand how these products enhance quality of life for medical professionals, patients, aerospace pilots and passengers. The students were particularly interested in our ongoing support of Project Daniel, in which 3D printing technology was used to print prosthetic limbs in hostile, remote areas in need, such as South Sudan. The patient who inspired the program is a Sudanese boy named Daniel, who lost both of his arms because of a bomb explosion. Daniel has been fitted with prosthetic arms and has regained the independence he lost – he can again feed himself and even helps teach others how to build the “Daniel arm.” Our guests were inspired by observing our commitment to enhancing lives through innovative solutions.
This year’s guests will be taken on a tour of our facilities. We will also present job opportunities currently available at Precipart. Refreshments will be served. Photo identification will be required.
