  • Our economy is driven by an export-led private sector. Flourishing markets are always guided by technological changes.
  • But to create those new technologies and to survive as a company, they depend for a very large part on the highly skilled employees!
  • But there is a high shortage of workers for the manufacturing sector…
  • …The younger generation is not there to take over. It is especially difficult, they say, to find people for machining positions.
  • Already 51% of the American manufacturing companies reports serious shortages today in machinists, operators, craft workers, distributors and technicians.
  • Even China has to close down production lines as they, as well, experience a critical skilled workforce shortage for their factories. So it is a global problem. A problem that we can overcome with education that leads the world.
  • In Europe things don’t look super either:Skilled trades are the most difficult positions to fill for the fourth year in a row
  • So manufacturing companies have a lot of work to do.
  • Using robots and Haas machines
  • He says differentiation, compelling classroom materials and technology lead to engagement, attractiveness for the students, which leads to high performance.Differentiation means differentiation in assignments, differentiation in instruction – This is indeed crucial, but that is not something we can help you with. So we have adopted Bill Gates’ model slightly :
  • You see the same model, but with one element added that is crucial for manufacturing: the importance of the learning environment to engage and attract students.An important factor to improve student achievement is to create better learning environments. International research has concluded that 5% to 8% of the scores depends on the modern look and comfortable feeling in the classroom!
  • We helped this school in Belgiumto create a bright, clean, attractive learning environment, which is...
  • and
  • This is an impressive poster about our collaboration with NASA. This posters is 3 meter wide, printed on durable vinyl.
  • We offer this poster as well, showing the different pieces of the Haas machines. We believe this is interesting teaching material.
  • USB sticks for your best students or one of our Haas rolex watches.
  • To show you some more pictures of existing HTECs:
  • You see the same style is always coming back: grey floors, white walls, bright, clean, inviting and motivating for students and teachers.
  • The learning environment is one element of the HTEC program to make the necessary good first impression on students and their parents. That will help you a lot to attract more students. A second element is probably a lot more important: the technology! Haas has got an enormous network of partners, and together we can bring all essential CNC technologies inside your school at very high discounts.
  • Existing HTECs say to us that Haas brings real support to schools. With real-industry equipment at high discounts. Not only do we bring Haas machines, we bring all other things you could need.With a CNC machine, you can’t do anything, you need Sandvik Coromant cutting tools, you need software (keller, esprit, mastercam), you need workholding to fix your piece (schunk, chick, Hainbuch, you will need coolant (for example Blaser or Cimcool). We can bring all necessary technologies for modern manufacturing to your school
  • Let’s first say a few words about Haas Automation. This is the front of our 100,000 m² factory in Oxnard, California, USA.
  • We are probably the only company in the machine tool industry that is able to combine low price AND speed service AND high quality. Our main competitors focus on quality and service, but offer that at a very high price. Our Asian competitors on the other hand have good quality and sharp price, but don’t have the structure in place to help you very quickly when there is a problem with your machine. For example: let’s assume your spindle is broken – call an Asian supplier and he will tell you that it takes 6-9 weeks. Call us and we will fix it it if not in 6-9 hours for sure within 24 hours.Why is our pricing so low? Because we robotized our factory almost completely. That means we don’t have huge personnel labor costs and will not include that in the machine price. Second, because we don’t take enormous sales margins. We keep the price as low as possible to benefit you as a customer. We are also the only company openly publishing its prices on the internet. Nobody else is doing that! If a competitor says you will receive 40-50% discount, you are not sure if that is actually true, because you don’t know the base price of the machine. With us it is crystal clear what you get, with us it is honest.For the service: 98,56% of the problems with Haas machines is fixed within 24 hours – We can achieve that with the use of local service vans that on average contain 60% of the common parts. That means when you call us, we fix it immediately on the first visit. We don’t come to you to see what the problem is, than return to the office again to get the materials and equipment and than come back to you. We don’t lose our time, we don’t lose your time and throw away your money.And we also focus on quality: number 1 is user-friendliness, the machine should be easy to use, easy to teach, easy to learn. Studies have shown that the Haas machines are the most user-friendly machine tools in the industry. SPECIAL this year are completely new, redesigned and improved 2010 Haas machines. Let us show you a few:
  • A very interesting feature for schools us our Haas control simulator:
  • As I already have said: with a CNC machine, you can’t do anything, you need tools, you need software, you need workholding to fix your piece,you will need coolant and so on. We have negotiated for months with the biggest names in the industry, to fix very high discount for the schools that step into the HTEC program. These prices and conditions are for HTECs ONLY. Regular schools will have it very difficult to get those technologies at the same conditions as HTECsNote: all details can be found in the HTEC manual
  • One normal Esprit license costs 30,000 euros – HTECs get it for free!
  • So again: 3 elements in the HTEC program: learning environment, technology and last but not least: teaching materials. We will give you permanent support and all possible teaching materials for direct use in the classroom, to help youusing the technologies in your lessons, and teach the students on the essential principles of CAM, workholding, cutting tools and coolant – otherwise the technology might end up on a shelf, gathering dust, because you don’t have time to figure out everything yourself – and of course that is not the goal. All HTEC partners are offering proven support materials. Mastercam for example even offers complete lesson packages
  • Mastercam for example can offer complete lesson packages with student books and instructor guides.
  • Coromant for example offers a free Metal cutting technology course for the schools that step into the HTEC network, with a lot of illustrations, pictures and exercises on many essential topics.
  • Or to show it visually: To make a difference in your community, we can support you with the HTEC program in internal quality, pupil recruitment and community communication.
  • The New Partnership Concept for Inspiring CNC Education

    1. 1.
    2. 2. Haas Automation: Philosophy<br />3. Technical Education: Challenges<br />4. Haas Technical EducationCenters:a NEW CONCEPT: technology + teaching materials + learning zone<br />2. Manufacturing Companies: The good, the bad and…<br />5. The HTEC Partnership: THE BENEFITS<br />1. Manufacturing Skills Shortage: Statistics & Trends<br />
    3. 3. Technological changes <br />with increased export opportunities always drive a flourishing economy.<br />
    4. 4. Who is creating those new technologies?<br />Manufacturers<br />From the precision machining of components for medical devices to building energy-efficient power, transport and communication infrastructures, manufacturing technology allows modern society to function.<br />
    5. 5. The quality and availability of skilled production workers, scientists, researchers, engineers and teachers is THE most significant driver of manufacturing competitiveness.<br />
    6. 6. BUT… Europe needs<br />new skilled workers in “agri-culture, craft, trade and machine operators”, by 2020.<br />16 million <br />
    7. 7. In the next 5 years, BOEING will lose40%<br />of its workers due to retirement.<br />That is 60,000 employees.<br />
    8. 8. Machinists, operators, craft workers, distributors and technicians<br />
    9. 9. China<br />has to close down production lines because of a critical shortage of skilled workforce for their factories.<br />
    10. 10. Top 10 most sought-after workers<br />Europe 2010<br />Incl. electricians, plumbers, welders, machining specialists etc<br />Skilled Trades<br />Sales Representatives<br />Production/Operations Technicians<br />Drivers<br />Accounting & Finance Staff<br />Engineers<br />Chefs/Cooks<br />Secretaries, Pas, Administrative Staff<br />IT Staff<br />Doctors & other Non-Nursing Health Professionals<br />new skilled workers in “agri-culture, craft, trade and machine operators”, by 2020.<br />
    11. 11. ...When the exact <br />opposite<br />trend is required...<br />“ONLY INTELLIGENT TECHNOLOGY CAN POSTPONE OR PREVENT THE WIPE OUT OF THE HUMAN RACE”<br />
    12. 12. But… THIS is the image people still have about manufacturing…<br />… perceived as a dirty, boring, uninteresting, unpleasant, repetitive career path.<br />
    13. 13. Good and bad in modern manufacturing companies<br />66% middle-aged employees report that they come home from work too tired to take care of their household chores at least several times a month.<br />Insufficient career progression and promotion programs in the manufacturing industry.<br />Less autonomy and fewer flexible work opportunities compared to other sectors (e.g. work off-site, part-year, reduced hours).-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br />Use of robots, computers, programmable motion control and sensing technologies transforms manufacturing from traditional assembly to “lean” manufacturing (e.g. teams producing entire products or components).<br />More and more employees can enjoy creative work. The days of the repetitious low-skilled, single tasks will soon be over.<br />Especially younger workers get more freedom in deciding how to perform their work and more often they are included in decision-making activities.<br />Manufacturing workers get paid 23% more than the rest of the workforce.<br />
    14. 14. So manufacturing companies have a lot of work to do.<br />Part of the solution is also education:<br />Recruiting specialists express concerns in:<br /><br />
    15. 15. …an increasing demand for highly skilled manufacturing workers is expected, i.e. those people with advanced hi-tech knowledge & skills, able to manufacture complex goods in energy, aerospace, biomedicine,...<br />
    16. 16. More employment possibilities in for young people with advanced CNC manufacturing skills.<br />
    17. 17. To make a difference in the community,we have to transform school training departments into centers-of-excellence for CNC manufacturing education.<br />YOUare the kind of people who can successfully start this change with...<br />
