Bob Knight strips the sand from the digital molds made at Humtown Products – this is the raw medium. Then there is a finishing support that uses blown air. It is essential that the sand is removed before it is delivered to the customer.
“They call it inclusion. It will wash into the metal. It will cause a defect, either a crack or a pocket where, you know, water or hydraulic fluid could leak from the final casting,” said Humtown Products owner Mark Lamoncha.
Humtown Products is hiring more production finishers. This is an entry-level job with training available. The only requirement is a high school diploma. He works in six-hour shifts and has four per day.
“Interest, purpose, passion, commitment,” Lamoncha said.
Humtown Products makes sand molds and cores for metal parts for use in trains, boats and cars. He uses a rail car a week of sand as he prints these parts. It does 3D printing without tools. Layers of resin are sprayed on with a thin layer of sand in between. The resin binds.
“They walk past all these manufacturing companies and don’t really know what they’re doing until they get here. We’re actually trying to build a team where somebody sees the value of being very involved in the quality process and the safety process,” Lamoncha said.
Humtown Products is participating in an Ohio to Work hiring event highlighting available jobs in Columbiana County.
“We have a lot of big manufacturers and a lot of companies that are looking to grow, but they’re hampered because there aren’t enough employees to allow them to do that,” said Brittany Smith of the Port Authority. of Columbiana County.
Manufacturing, healthcare, office jobs, IT. 35 companies will be represented at the event. This will be your chance to find a job that matches your passion.
“Many of them will conduct in-person interviews on the spot. So if you’re not sure what interests you, you can talk to many different employers and learn a little more about each available job,” Smith said.
The Ohio to Work Columbiana County hiring event will take place this Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It will be held at the Crestview Performing Arts Center. Jobs will be available in various fields.
