(Batesville, Ind.) – Batesville Products, Inc. (BPI) recently welcomed students from Rising Sun High School, Lawrenceburg High School and Manchester Elementary School.

Students toured the facility to learn about engineering, casting, machining, inspection and polishing. They were particularly interested in new technologies in the manufacturing industry, such as finite element analysis and BPI’s sawing and polishing robots. But their enthusiasm didn’t stop with the tour; the students took home casting activities to simulate the permanent mold aluminum casting process.

“We can never thank you enough for your flexibility and for allowing our students to see firsthand how products are made,” said Mary Bailey, Principal of Manchester Elementary School. “It looks like great things are happening at BPI with the addition of new robots. It’s definitely a hidden gem! ”

These field trips were part of BPI’s many celebrations for Manufacturing Day, an annual national event aimed at showcasing modern manufacturing and generating interest in careers in manufacturing.

Batesville Products also celebrated Manufacturing Day with an employee lunch and t-shirts. This year’s manufacturing day was very special, as it coincided with BPI’s 75th anniversary as a family-run casting foundry.
