Announcements & Releases WOMO Designs – Prototyping With a Twist

By Stephen Hannemann

A manufacturer’s success these days depends upon a continuous stream of new product development. Product developers rely heavily upon nearly instant gratification, and the availability of a prototype for a given concept. Hence the proliferation of prototype houses and 3D printing. Without question these houses and services are invaluable. You send a file, a program, and voila, in one to three days you have a prized concept in your hand. Wow! Key question: Is the concept economically manufacturable? The twist: Enter award-winning WOMO Designs. With 43 years of machining, prototyping, and design consulting under their belt, Steve Ouimet, president of WOMO Designs, will sit down with you and ask the pertinent questions regarding material selection, machining vs. casting, injection molding, and production printing. These considerations along with part / project evaluation are addressed up front, saving the customer A2Z MANUFACTURING WEST COAST •

6 • OCT- NOV ‘21

countless hours of dealing with manufacturability issues. Adding one little feature could save countless hours on the assembly line. Eliminating one seemingly insignificant machine op could optimize automated machine time by 10% to 25%. Perhaps one added or removed radius could save thousands of dollars in injection mold tooling costs. An expert prototyper with a designer’s eye can highlight these potential savings and more. Yes, these consultations may delay having your revolutionary product in hand by a day or two. But two hours of in-depth conversation and well directed redesign up front can save valuable hours and precious capitol downstream. Upon the first presentation investors are always more impressed, and readily greenlight a design when deemed manufacturable on a lean assembly line. Throughput and bottom lines are king when manufacturers are engaged in reshoring efforts and, in many cases, succeeding in bringing manufacturing back stateside. WOMO Designs also has years of experience in producing production tooling and assembly fixtures for medical and optical industries. Give WOMO Designs a call today – phone 253.735.6707 or email Steve Ouimet at to schedule a consultation. Look for our WOMO ad on Page 20.

Our Showroom At: 3305 Edison Way, Fremont, CA 94538 Is Open Monday - Friday From 8am To 5pm Hexagon Unveils Platform to Accelerate Autonomous Quality Assurance for Industry 4.0 H e x a g o n ’ s Manufacturing Intelligence (Nor th Kingstown, RI) has unveiled HxGN Robotic Automation, providing robotic programming and control software that enables non-specialist quality professionals to program industrial robots to perform fully automated quality inspection.

or retrofit existing production lines with state-of-the-art, autonomous optical inspection cells, accelerating time to market by eliminating bottlenecks while providing more complete data direct from the production line as products are made. HxGN Robotic Automation enables manufacturers to accelerate adoption of Industry 4.0 by intelligently devising optimal inspection routines in a single step. According to Hexagon, that task that would typically demand significant time and attention from both a metrology and robotics professional. With HxGN Robotic Automation, manufacturers can now develop the program offline, away from the production line in a digital reality, and deploy the program to the robotic cell.The software is already used by market leaders such as ŠKODA AUTO to enhance its manufacturing production lines. “We have reduced the time required to program robotic inspection from several days to just four hours using the new software, so we can be ready and waiting to inspect a new vehicle as soon as we want to begin production,” said Martin Jehlika, chief of measurement center at ŠKODA AUTO. “Robotic automation and Hexagon’s highspeed laser scanning systems have already halved the inspection time for parts and subassemblies, and installing these automated inspection cells on the production line is fundamental to our Industry 4.0 strategy of making data available and actionable so quality trends can be identified quickly or, in some cases, automatically corrected.”

According to Hexagon, the software is built on open design principles, interfaces with new or existing industrial robots, and is flexible so that quality professionals can employ the most appropriate metrology sensors to help rapidly future-proof factories with real-time, inline metrology. Hexagon added that by enabling real-time measurement data to be automatically captured at source and used to optimize production in realtime, the technology embeds quality assurance in the heart of production to enable faster, self-correcting manufacturing and free up staff time for other tasks, such as data analysis. “Automating inspection is vital to enable OEMs to consolidate quality across increasingly diverse, complex products and processes,” said Stephen Graham, president of metrology and production software at Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division. “Truly smart manufacturing needs swift, accurate, and accessible measurement data, but many robotic

inspection systems are costly, complex, closed systems that are incompatible with manufacturer’s chosen tools and inaccessible to non-specialists. HxGN Robotic Automation is built around openness so that manufacturers can swiftly and seamlessly future-proof entire manufacturing lines for robotic inspection.” HxGN Robotic Automation supports Hexagon laser trackers, Leica T-Scan and AS1 scanners and directly interfaces with FANUC and KUKA robots, while built-in postprocessors enable the robot controller to work with a range of third-party robots. Future versions will support the HxGN SLS Structured Light Scanner and thirdparty sensors. Albina Co., Inc. “Your Metal Bending Experts”

(877) 398-6061 The Jobs Are There. Where Is the Training? [NTMA Mention]

By: Michael Collins

A 2018 study by Deloitte and the Manufacturing Institute predicted that U.S. manufacturing would have 2.1 million unfilled jobs by 2030. In July 2021, the Department of Labor (DOL) Job Openings and LaborTurnover Survey (JOLTS) showed 889,000 unfilled manufacturing jobs. I tried to find out how many of these unfilled jobs are skilled vs. unskilled, but nobody I talked to at the DOL had any idea. In fact, I couldn’t find anyone in government or industry who had any idea what kinds of manufacturing jobs are going unfilled. Bill Padnos of the National Tooling and Machining Association thinks that most unfilled jobs are middle-skill jobs and that many require apprentice training. But many companies do not want to invest in long term apprentice training, Padnos says, because they don’ believe they’ll get a good return on investment, and they also don’t want to certify journeymen because the employees would have the skills to shop for better jobs. Padnos said 70% of his members are shops with less than 40 employees and cannot afford the time or money to invest in apprentice training. My assumption is that if a good percentage of these jobs are highly skilled, then we will need advanced or long-term training like apprentice training. However, it appears that the manufacturing sector is not investing in apprentice, training. I have been following the Office of Apprenticeship training’s website since 2001 and the total annual number of registered A2Z MANUFACTURING WEST COAST •

10 • OCT- NOV ‘21

apprentices in manufacturing has dropped from around 20,950 in 2001 to 15,510 in 2020. Meanwhile, apprenticeships in other sectors like construction are growing. 1. Entr y-level worker s. According to the Deloitte/MI survey “These are the jobs that do not require technical knowhow or industry knowledge, such as team assemblers, production work helpers and hand-held tool cutters and trimmers.” They say that manufacturers are willing to pay $15.50 per hour, but that “applications are not pouring in.” It is a problem because new workers without experience can get a job at Amazon for $18 an hour starting pay with up to a $3,000 signing bonus. Wages are going up in many service industries, and $15.50/hour may not be enough to interest a Starbucks employee to make the switch. 2. Semi-skilled workers. These are jobs like CNC machine operators, welders, drill press operator, assemblers, grinders machine operators and tenders, which require classroom and hands-on training that can take several months up to one year. 3. Highly skilled jobs. Although apprentice training is not growing in U.S. manufacturing, many industries still need journeyman workers. Penn

United in Cabot, Pa., is a good example of a company with successful apprentice training. They have 90 apprentices in training today and need more. They believe that to truly become a productive machinist, students must learn all the manual machining skills first before learning CNC.Their journeyman machinists become proficient in 28 different skills and are capable of operating a wide variety of machine tools. They also have the ability and skills to work in other departments of the factory and are far more productive than specialist CNC machinists.

Penn United also believes in “competencybased training,” in that people coming from high school and vocational school programs will get credit for learned skills. Workers who complete the required skills on the journeyman checklist before the four years of training are up can also receive their certification earlier. The 2021 skills gap report also focuses on smart manufacturing and the 4th Industrial Revolution. It says manufacturers must transform the world of work using artificial intelligence, advanced robotics, automation analytics, cloud computing, wireless communication, big-data analytics and the IoT. But the report doesn’t say anything about how much training will be needed to accomplish the digital revolution. If manufacturing is having trouble finding entry level workers and investing in the training of semi- and advanced-skilled workers, how will it train people for the digital revolution and transform the world of work?

COVID 19 SNEEZE GUARDS, QUICK, SAFE, HIGH QUALITY CALL TODAY TO PLACE YOUR ORDER: 503-477-7566 training to get them productive as quickly as possible.

A January 2020 training survey by the Manufacturing Institute shows that the average number of hours of training, per employee, among their members is 27.7 hours per year. and for new employees it was 42.9 hours per year.The training survey also shows that only 32% of members have apprentice training programs.The study says that “75% of industrial organizations identified reskilling the workforce as important or very important for their success over the next year, but only 10% said they were very ready to address this trend.”

The short-term approach will probably work for entry-level workers but it doesn’t answer the multiple skills needed for tool and die, mold making, advanced machining or all of the maintenance skills needed to troubleshoot, repair, operate and maintain automated production lines using robots and palletizers.

Montez King, executive director of NIMS, the National Institute for Metalworking Skills, said that most manufacturers tell him they want short-term training tracks that are “stackable” along a particular career path. King responded with what he calls “short-track” training that is designed to train workers one role at a time. He said NIMS’ Smart Training Solutions is focused on roles, not occupations. Montez makes the point that there are not enough skilled workers to hire, and manufacturing companies are faced with training entry-level employees on the job, with short-track

The Deloitte report says 2.69 million manufacturing workers will be retiring, so more training is probably the only real answer left. It would really help if the Department of Labor could determine how many of the 889,000 manufacturing workers needed were highly skilled semi-skilled and unskilled, so industry leaders would know what kind of training is needed.

By Marissa Nall Deliveries of Renton- and Everett-made jets climbed in September for the Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) as it continued to outpace its primary rival Airbus on new orders. The company continued its streak of net orders, driven by the popular single-aisle 737 Max, as well as six new orders of its highcapacity 777 freight craft that brought it to nearly 60 orders for freighters so far this year. That puts it at 302 orders for the year, net of cancellations and conversions, compared with 138 orders for French jet manufacturer Airbus, which received just one order for the month after a banner month with 99 orders in August. On deliveries, where jet makers receive the majority of their revenue, Airbus maintained its lead on Boeing with 40 deliveries for the month, compared with Boeing’s 35. Of those 35 deliveries, 26 were for the Max, while five were freighters; also among the month’s deliveries were three widebody 777s and a converted 767 tanker for the U.S. Air Force. Chicago-based Boeing’s September deliveries were “somewhat disappointing,” Cowen senior aerospace analyst Cai von Rumohr said in a note to investors Tuesday.

Overall, Airbus has delivered 424 planes to 74 customers in 2021, compared with 241 total deliveries for Boeing. Of those, 179 were 737s, illustrating the plane’s recovery after two deadly crashes six months apart grounded the plane for 20 months in 2019 and 2020. Boeing’s backlog stayed nearly flat at 4,163 as of the end of September. Family-owned and operated since 1983. 4730 Eucalyptus Ave. Chino, CA 91710

Deliveries of the 737 were “a tad light,” von Rumohr said, while Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner production remained paused as it worked out issues near the nose of the plane for FAA recertification. “But 22 net orders were the eighth straight month of positive bookings, suggesting demand is on the mend.”

That brings it to 85 deliveries overall for its Commercial Airplanes division in the third quarter, a huge jump from the 28 it delivered in the same quarter the prior year. “We are also continuing to complete comprehensive inspections across the 787 production system and within the supply chain, while holding detailed, transparent discussions with the FAA, suppliers and our customers,” Boeing said in a news release. “Production resources remain focused on inspections and rework,” for the plane, which is currently being built at a rate of five jets per month.

Boeing Speeds Up 737 Max Deliveries By Daniel McCoy The Boeing Co. stepped up the delivery pace of its 737 MAX, as the rebound of its narrow-body jet program helped offset continued struggles on other programs in the third quarter. According to new order and delivery data from the company, Boeing handed over 26 MAX aircraft in September, up from 14 in August, to finish the third quarter with 66 737 deliveries. That included five older 737 variants used as the platform for the P-8 antisubmarine defense aircraft. The 737 is the most important individual aircraft program to the Wichita economy, as locally based Spirit AeroSystems Inc. builds around 70% of the structure on the jet. Boeing (NYSE: BA) has delivered 179 of the aircraft through the first nine months of the year, marking a rebound after a 20-month safety grounding in 2019 and 2020 spurred by two deadly crashes of the MAX. Spirit (NYSE: SPR) plans to ramp up its workforce through 2024 — adding around 5,000 people — primarily to meet expected production increases on the MAX in the years ahead. But Boeing’s marquee wide-body passenger jet, the 787 Dreamliner, remain stalled in September as deliveries were still halted due to production issues. That includes nonconformities found in the forward fuselage section made in Wichita by Spirit. While the issues are not believed to pose a safety risk, Boeing has idled Dreamliner deliveries for much of 2021 as it works through the quality control issues and a new inspection process with the Federal Aviation Administration. Boeing’s other deliveries in the third quarter included 11 767s, six 777s and two 747s. Boeing also continued its order momentum over rival Airbus, as September marked the eighth straight month that new orders outpaced cancellations. That helped push Boeing to 302 net orders on the year, compared to 133 for Airbus. But the European manufacturer remains well ahead on deliveries through the first three quarters, outpacing Boeing 474 to 241. Spirit has work on Airbus commercial programs at factories outside of Wichita, including North Carolina and the United Kingdom.

The U.S. Marine Corps operates F-35B short takeoff/vertical landing aircraft and plans to purchase 353 F-35Bs and 67 F-35C carrier variant aircraft. Together with the Marines, the U.S. Navy is bringing 5th Generation capability to the sea with plans to procure 260 F-35C aircraft. Growing Global The growing community of F-35 nations strengthens U.S. and global security, bolstering alliance-based deterrence, interoperability and partnership. With more than 220 F-35s now delivered to international operators, the impact of the global fleet is substantial – both in size and significance. One of the most visible examples of international F-35 collaboration is the United Kingdom’s Carrier Strike Group deployment. The United Kingdom’s HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier began its initial deployment in May 2021, with British and U.S. Marine Corps F-35Bs aboard. The U.K. now has two aircraft carriers deployed with F-35Bs aboard – following the inaugural deployment of HMS Prince of Wales, Britain’s newest aircraft carrier. By 2035, more than 450 F-35s will be stationed on the European continent, including 48 U.S. Air Force F-35As. North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) members with F-35 programs of record include Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, the United Kingdom and United States. Switzerland recently selected the F-35 as the nation’s next fighter platform, production of the first F-35 for Poland is scheduled to begin in 2022 and the first aircraft is expected to be delivered in 2024. Preliminary talks are also underway with several potential new F-35 customers in Europe. Partners in the Pacific The F-35 is also powering partnerships in the Indo-Pacific, where regional nations plan to procure a combined total of nearly 300 F-35s.

Australia operates the F-35A with a program of record for 100 F-35A aircraft. Japan is acquiring more F-35s than any other international customer with an established program of record of 147 F-35 aircraft – 105 F-35As and up to 42 F-35Bs.The Republic of Korea is currently taking deliveries of 40 F-35A aircraft, and Singapore is on track to receive its first F-35B in 2026. Advanced, Affordable The F-35 delivers unmatched interoperability and the ability to forward-deploy and operate in hostile environments, side-by-side with allies.

Four General Electric (GE) gas turbines have been deployed in California as part of the follow-up to Gov. Gavin Newsom’s emergency order to safeguard the state’s power grid. GE recently announced two of the company’s 30-MWTM2500 aeroderivative turbines have been installed at the Roseville Energy Park in Roseville, with another two installed adjacent to Calpine’s existing Sutter Energy Center in Yuba City. The TM2500 units, which are essentially grounded jet engines that have been reconfigured to run on natural gas and generate electricity, are designed to start and ramp up within minutes to supplement renewable power generation and provide more reliability and resiliency to the state’s electricity supply, which has been challenged in recent years due to numerous wildfires, extreme heat, and drought. Licenses for the units were issued in August, and GE said the turbines were ordered, delivered, installed, and commissioned in only 42 days by GE, Kiewit Power Constructors Co., and California’s Department of Water Resources (DWR), which manages the state’s water supply. The DWR has anticipated a power supply shortage as hydropower resources have been reduced, and the reliability of the commercial and residential water supply in the state could be impacted by power outages. Emissions Regulations California has stringent emissions regulations, which has led to an increased emphasis on renewable and cleaner energy resources to supply power. The DWR has taken a lead role in helping the power industry diversify the state’s electricity supply, with an eye toward supporting reliability and controlling costs, while recognizing that natural gas-fired generation continues to supply the bulk of the state’s electricity. “The State of California has made tremendous progress in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and is helping to lead U.S. climate change action,” said Eric Gray, CEO, Americas, GE Gas Power, in a statement. “We are proud to support the State of California and the Department of Water Resources while demonstrating the highly efficient and flexible nature of gas power to support renewable energy and ensure system reliability with a low environmental footprint.We are helping the state of California meets its renewables and carbon mandates, while providing reliability to the electrical system when renewable resources are not sufficient to meet the state’s electricity demands.” The trailer-mounted GE TM2500 units are being deployed at two California sites to support the state’s electricity supply. Courtesy: California DWR Officials said the need to quickly install new generation resources to provide power during periods of peak demand led to the decision to use aeroderivative gas turbines.

GE said more than 300 of the units are installed worldwide, often alongside permanent power installations, or for generating backup power after natural disasters, or to provide electricity to rural locations.TheTM2500 has dual-fuel capability, able to operate on liquid fuel or natural gas, and also is capable of running on 75% hydrogen as a fuel. “Kiewit has worked with GE on a wide range of power generation projects for many years, which allowed us to mobilize quickly and efficiently integrate the necessary equipment at the Roseville and Yuba City power plants,” said Dave Flickinger, executive vice president, Kiewit Power Constructors Co. “Our long-standing presence in California and understanding of local energy-related challenges, combined with solid working relationships with GE and DWR, also helped contribute to the success of the project.”

50 MW of battery energy storage after the two gas-fired units are removed. CAISO in early September submitted an emergency request for additional power generation; the request was approved by the Dept. of Energy (DOE) on Sept. 10. DOE approval enables CAISO to access generation that otherwise would be constrained by federal air regulations. CAISO in its request wrote, “This authorization will help the CAISO meet the existing emergency and serve the public interest by preventing or mitigating power disruptions and the potential curtailment of electricity load within the CAISO balancing authority area. To minimize any adverse impact on the environment, the CAISO will only dispatch the generating units identified in this request above their permitted levels during specified hours and only if necessary to meet exceptional levels of electricity demand or to address a transmission emergency that would otherwise create the risk of curtailing electric demand.”

State Paying Roseville $1 Million The Roseville Energy Park is home to the city’s municipal utility. California is paying the city $1 million to use the site this year, and $3.5 million each of the next two years as part of an $8 million contract. (A video of the Roseville project is available here.)

California officials have said the state could see an electricity supply shortage of as much as 3,500 MW of generation during extreme weather conditions, or an even higher shortfall should severe heat and drought conditions persist. Heat waves in each of the past two years, and continued concerns about electrical equipment sparking wildfires that have ravaged the state, have led California utilities to preemptively institute blackouts in order to protect the grid.

Calpine officials said the two units inYuba City, like those in Roseville, will be available for dispatch at the direction of the California Independent System Operator (CAISO), which operates the state’s power grid.Yuba City officials have said the units will be available through year-end 2023. The site will use existing interconnection infrastructure to integrate about

Six similar GE turbines earlier this year were ordered by Colorado Springs Utilities in Colorado to temporarily replace power generation from the retiring coal-fired Martin Drake power plant, which is scheduled to be shuttered by year-end 2022. A2Z MANUFACTURING WEST COAST •

MICRO-TRONICS – MORE THAN JUST AN EDM SHOP NASA Awards Funding to GE Aviation and MagniX for the Development of Electric Propulsion GEAviation and MagniX are the two U.S. companies awarded a combined $253 million from NASA for the development of electric aircraft propulsion (EAP) technologies for aircraft. The technology developed through this funding intends to reach consumers by 2035 and has the potential to be a major contributor to the industry-wide commitment of a net-zero emissions goal by 2050. With a combined value of $253.4 million, NASA’s funding was split between the two companies. GE Aviation received the majority of the funding, totaling $179 million. MagniX received $74.3 million. The backing comes from NASA’s Electric Powertrain Flight Demonstration (EPFD) program; a project that falls under a larger NASA establishment known as Integrated Aviation Systems Program (IASP), a program specializing in flight-oriented, system-level research and technology development for transition to advanced aeronautic technologies into future air vehicles and operational systems. “GE Aviation and MagniX will perform integrated megawatt-class powertrain system ground and flight demonstrations to validate their concepts, and project benefits for future [electrified aircraft propulsion] A2Z MANUFACTURING WEST COAST •

Energize This: Canada Could Become A Global Hub For New Nuclear Technology

Tomas Kellner

Canada, like many industrialized countries, has pledged to reduce its net carbon emissions to zero by 2050. But what makes Canada unique is how it wants to achieve that goal. Like others, it has been boosting renewables like wind and solar. But it also plans to add to the mix a powerful new source: small modular reactors, or SMRs. SMRs can generate carbon-free electricity while overcoming some of the nuclear industry’s biggest challenges — namely, cost and lengthy construction times. They can play a crucial role in helping Canada decarbonize in several important ways. Designed to produce up to 300 megawatts of carbon-free electricity generation, SMRs can step in when the wind stops blowing or the sun stops shining, which can happen for extended periods during Canada’s long winters, marked by a formidable mix of snow, cold and short days. But they can also help provide carbon-free generation in remote areas, particularly in the northern regions, where many rely on diesel generators for electricity. A2Z MANUFACTURING WEST COAST •

Highlighting Canada’s long experience with nuclear energy — it was the world’s second country to generate nuclear power — Seamus O’Regan, Canada’s minister of natural resources, said in a statement, “SMRs offer the next great opportunity” for Canada. SMRs also could prove to be a game changer for Canada’s economy, which already has some of the world’s largest resources of uranium. Being a first adopter of the SMR technology could allow Canada to become a global leader in this technology and spark a whole new industry that could create thousands of jobs in manufacturing, construction and plant operation. Countries like the U.S., Poland and Estonia have already expressed interest in the technology. “In the face of the existential threat of climate change, Canada is investing in the full suite of the energy technologies we will need to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. Nuclear energy is part of achieving these objectives,” O’Regan said. “We also see tremendous potential to expand safer nuclear technologies — in Canada and around the world.” The government of Ontario and its utility, Ontario Power Generation (OPG), are currently in the process of selecting the company that will build in its province the first SMR in the world, with plans to bring it online by 2028.

domestic product, C$1.7 billion in wages, and C$873 million in taxes for the province’s economy. PricewaterhouseCoopers reported, in a study commissioned by GE, that the global market for SMRs is expected to grow to $150 billion between 2025 and 2040. PwC also reported that the SMR reactor in Ontario is expected to create 1,700 jobs during the construction and manufacturing phase. GE Hitachi is “already building this coalition,” Wileman says. In July, GE Hitachi and another GE joint venture, Global Nuclear Fuel (GNF), announced a memorandum of understanding with Canada’s Cameco Corp., one of the largest providers of uranium fuel in the world. “Cameco intends to be a go-to fuel supplier for these innovative reactors,” saidTim Gitzel, Cameco president and CEO. “We’re looking forward to working with GE Hitachi and GNF to see what opportunities might exist around their novel SMR design.”

One company that raised its hand to do the job is GE Hitachi, which has been supporting the operation of nuclear reactors around the world for decades.The company is developing an SMR called the BWRX-300 (see video below).The reactor stands on the broad shoulders of true, tried and tested technologies that power many existing nuclear power plants. But it also includes innovative features that would allow it to be deployed more quickly than conventional large reactors. “The pieces themselves already exist, they are basically building blocks that have been pre-designed,” says Christer Dahlgren, the principal designer of the BWRX-300. “You are no building them in the field. They are coming to the site already built and pre-tested. GE Hitachi wants to go further than just build the first SMR in Canada. It wants to help Canada to become the first global center of excellence for this technology. “Canada is taking steps to be first and to start a wave of new builds,” says JayWileman, president and CEO of GE Hitachi. “GE has been in Canada for more than 100 years. We can bring our state-ofthe-art technology and build a coalition of Canadian partners to support Canada’s SMR Action Plan.That would include building on our local GE infrastructure, bringing and expanding our nuclear resources in Canada and collaborating with Canadian partners that have expertise to help with the development and deployment of the BWRX-300.” The Conference Board of Canada, the country’s leading independent research organization, reported that in Ontario alone, the technology can generate 2.6 billion Canadian dollars (US$2.07 billion) of gross

GE Hitachi also is working with First Nations Power Authority (FNPA), an organization developing energy projects serving Canada’s Indigenous people, to tap into talent inside Canada’s Indigenous communities. GE Hitachi is currently seeking to hire and train 30 new field service technicians, who could be among the first global operation and maintenance experts trained on the BWRX-300 reactors.The company also plans to open 80 new jobs in Ontario to support the rollout of its SMRs, and it brought on nine interns from Canadian universities this summer. “GE Hitachi values diversity in our workforce, including equal employment opportunities for indigenous people,” says Lisa McBride, GE Hitachi’s country leader for SMRs in Canada. “We are working to develop a highly-skilled workforce to serve the current nuclear fleet, with the potential opportunity to service the BWRX-300 SMR fleet when deployed in Canada.” McBride works with industry partners, suppliers, government regulators, NGOs and other stakeholders to bring the BWRX-300 to Ontario. “Canada has significant nuclear experience and is a global leader in the nuclear industry,” she says. “We are looking to leverage the expertise in Canada and build on that for the future of SMRs.” Heather Chalmers, president and CEO of GE Canada, is very engaged in supporting this effort. Chalmers grew up next to a nuclear power plant on the shores of Lake Ontario and got her first university job there. “In Canada, we are very comfortable with nuclear power,” Chalmers says. “In Ontario, almost 60% of our electricity in the province comes from nuclear power generation and we’re proud of that. For me personally, I’ve always had a relationship with the industry. Literally from my childhood home, where my parents still live, I could see a nuclear power plant. It was part of our community growing up.” But like others, Chalmers also is looking beyond her home country. “Canada has a global nuclear vision, and we want to help the country to be the leader in this new SMR industry,” she says. “We know that as soon as OPG starts building the first SMR, that’s going to be the tipping point for other provinces and countries to follow suit. Canada is going to benefit from that, and, with our scalable SMR technology, we can help Canada achieve its vision. GE also has a history of building amazing technology together with Canada for more than 120 years, and this is no different. This is the beginning of something big.” A2Z MANUFACTURING WEST COAST •

The Manufacturer’s Secret Weapon By Stephen Hannemann

Hiring Forward

Now that the COVID unemployment benefits have expired, an air of optimism exists in the number of small businesses that are anticipating a surge in workforce talent seeking employment. In addition, there are many who are currently employed and looking forward to a work environment change for myriad reasons as well.

André Taylor production demands.

Despite the shortage of an adequate labor force, rising material costs, and supply chain and transportation issues across the whole spectrum of manufacturing, U.S. production has nearly achieved 2019 prepandemic levels. Over the past four years much manufacturing has been re-shored. Shop owners are hard pressed to keep up with

In the past year and a half, I have witnessed business owners lament the lack of labor, poor work ethics, and a heightened sense of entitlement in new hires. More than ever before, shop managers are under pressure to avoid time consuming and costly hiring mistakes. Many small businesses do not have the luxury of seasoned a HR department to articulately vet applicants for positions being filled. So, what should small business owners look for when hiring? How can they quickly and effectively determine if a person will be a good fit? Are there tells to be aware of? Can they make better hiring choices? The answer is yes.

André Taylor, founder of CareerPaths NW, described attributes to look for when interviewing a candidate to fill a role in your organization. “Hope is not a valid strategy – look for the Hit Factor, the Pow Factor. Is their glass half full? Are they motivated? Do they look the part?” André continued. “Ask the right questions to draw them out. Do they give you a reason to trust? Are they a fit for your culture?”That’s a big one! “Does the applicant impart confidence in their abilities and temperament?” Notice the economy in André’s strategy. Don’t invest their or your valuable time and energy in a non-candidate. “Are you satisfied with the aforementioned? Now discuss their qualifications and the position offered.” If you need help locating a well vetted prospect, CareerPaths NW has the expertise to locate the perfect CEO,VP, GM, a Brake Press Operator and every position in between.
