When explaining your manufacturing job to others, sometimes it would be more helpful if they could just see what you do on a daily basis.

Have you ever been in a situation in which you are trying to explain your day-to-day job to someone, and you get a glazed-over stare? When talking manufacturing, anything past the concept of an assembly line tends to lose your audience.

These people need to see all the cool technology you are using and the difficult machining operations you perform every day to fully understand what you do for a living. The good thing is that there are many resources available to do that.

For instance, 5th Axis machine vises are going to be featured on the Science Channel USA’s show “How It’s Made” November 21 at 9 p.m. EST (For local listings, check here.)

Another resource is the show “Titan-American Built,” which began airing last week on MAVTV. This new reality series centers on Titan Gilroy and his team of shop members who will be tasked to create parts for major American companies. Read more here.
