MAGNET Showcases New Manufacturing Technology

This week, OMA staff participated in a ribbon cutting at the headquarters of Cleveland-based MAGNET, which is part of the Ohio Manufacturing Extension Partnership (Ohio MEP). The event marked the official opening of MAGNET’s “Manufacturing Technology Experience.”

Lt. Gov. Jon Husted, who oversees the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation, led the ceremony to showcase new “Industry 4.0” technologies — including collaborative robots, AI, AR/VR, machine vision, 3-D printing devices, and more.

Acquired with the help of state and federal funds, these advanced technologies will enhance MAGNET’s consulting and engineering work with Northeast Ohio’s small and mid-sized manufacturers. The new technology will also offer manufacturing executives a hands-on showroom to evaluate these technologies.
