LCCC Launches Third Mobile Lab to Address Industry Training Needs

To address the growing need for high quality training on location, Lehigh Carbon Community College will launch its third Mobile Manufacturing Lab Classroom, bringing advanced manufacturing training directly to the business community. This third classroom marks a milestone in the college’s efforts to provide accessible and hands-on learning opportunities for individuals interested in pursuing careers in manufacturing and industrial automation.

The Mobile Manufacturing Lab Classroom is equipped with cutting-edge equipment, tools and technology used in modern manufacturing environments. It is designed to replicate a real-world manufacturing setting, providing participants with hands-on experience and practical training in various aspects of manufacturing and industrial automation.

The lab is equipped with industry-standard machinery and technology, including robotics, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), computer numerical control (CNC) machines, and more. Because it is mobile, the lab allows LCCC to bring training directly to communities, schools and businesses, making it accessible to individuals who may not have access to traditional training facilities.

A variety of training programs can be tailored to the needs and interests of participants, covering topics such as robotics, automation, CNC machining, 3D printing and mechatronics. Instructors are industry professionals with expertise in manufacturing and industrial automation.

The expansion of LCCC’s Mobile Manufacturing Lab Classroom program reflects its commitment to meeting the growing demand for skilled workers in the manufacturing sector. The first lab has been offering mobile training since 2019, and the second was launched in July 2023. This third lab can be reserved now for training that is scheduled to start in July.

Those interested in scheduling the lab for training sessions, either short- or long-term, can reach out to Don Worman, 610-769-1354 or DWorman@LCCC.edu. Tours of the lab can also be scheduled. More information is available at www.LCCC.edu/mobilelab.
