We are delighted to welcome Maker Faire Milwaukee sponsors, Miller Electric and Weld Specialty, to the event this year. Miller and Weld are teaming up to provide Faire visitors with a great opportunity to see demonstrations of Panasonic Robot and Miller Live Arc technology throughout the weekend.
The Panasonic Robot will be used to demonstrate automation with welding, and the Miller Live arc is an interactive welding training module that combines non-welding hands on training to involve active welding once ready. It can be used for both live welding and in training mode for safety.
Miller Electric and Weld Specialty will also be participating in our special Field Trip Friday program for disadvantaged students. Field Trip Friday provides 300 students with opportunities to meet and work with exhibitors, and get a behind-the-scenes tour of the Faire before we open on Saturday morning. Education is an important goal of Maker Faires around the world and we are grateful to Miller and Weld for their support.
