Manufacturers add 16,000 workers in June
Shopfloor
The Bureau of Labor Statistics said that manufacturers have added 16,000 workers in June, its 11th straight positive reading for job gains in the sector. Since the end of 2009, the manufacturing industry has added 644,000 net new workers, and the sector has hired 12,636 new individuals on average each month since August. Revisions to April and May data also added another 6,000 employees total in those months. This is a sign that the increase in demand and production that we have seen since the third quarter of last year has led to additional hiring. Moreover, June’s jobs figure was the highest monthly gain since February, with stronger employment activity for the second consecutive month.

The thermal effects from welding and heat treatment influence the microstructure and mechanical properties of welds. Various materials, such as carbon steels and other alloy grades, are affected by heat treatment which changes the weld metallurgy and influences the final welded product. Better understanding of the impact of welding and heat treatment practices can allow for the weld quality and reliability to be optimized for the application.

Montana college's trade certificates get new workers out the door quickly in welding
The Montana Standard
Highlands College's quest to get students certified quickly in welding, machining and aerospace welding is in full gear. The three certificate programs at the Butte, Montana, college are theoretically designed to train a student, award them a certificate and get them out the door for jobs. But each program has a cap of 10 students, so Highlands Dean John Garic encourages students to sign up as soon as possible for fall semester, when classes start.

Veteran finding opportunity in Texas
The Potpourri
At his lowest point, William Wilson found himself unemployed with six children to support in a new town. After losing his welding job in San Antonio, Wilson packed his family up and moved to northwest Harris County, where he decided to get serious about completing his education. While Wilson had already completed basic welding classes in his home state of Pennsylvania, a lack of experience and job opportunities along the East Coast held him back. For most of his career, he supported himself through a series of odd and contract jobs.

3-D-printed car could lead American manufacturing revolution
Fox Sports
Local Motors wants to change the way America makes things. In fact, it already has. The Phoenix-based automotive and industrial design and manufacturing outfit was one of the pioneers of cloud-based co-creation, where members of a 150,000-member strong online community submit and refine ideas for products, dramatically speeding up the process. Founded in 2007, its first project was the Rally Fighter, a high-speed off-roader built from a mix of original parts and off-the-shelf components that’s manufactured in small numbers at what Local Motors calls a microfactory.
