ATAS Hosts Mobile Manufacturing Lab

ATAS International, Inc. was proud to host Lehigh Carbon Community College’s (LCCC) Mobile Manufacturing Lab, in the parking lot of ATAS’ headquarters located in Allentown, Pa. Six students from four area companies earned certificates in the Industrial Automation training held Aug. 15 through Dec. 5, 2017.

The unique learning within this Mobile Manufacturing Lab targeted the mechanical/electrical maintenance needs of local manufacturers.  At the completion of the program, created by LCCC’s Center for Leadership and Workforce Development, students should qualify for an entry level maintenance technician position at most area manufacturers. The 200-hour Industrial Automation Technician course combined online coursework followed by hand-on training in the Mobile Lab. Course curriculum included AC/DC electrical systems, electrical motor control, electronic sensors, electrical systems control, mechanical drives, pneumatics, and programmable controllers.

Dick Bus, President of ATAS International, stated, “ATAS supports specialized training for our current and future employees. We understand that many Lehigh Valley manufacturers are experiencing the same challenges in accessing convenient training opportunities and talented personnel. In addition to the skills learned in this program, training such as this is helpful for students considering manufacturing.”
