Cleveland, OH---LIFT (Lightweighting Innovations for Tomorrow) is one of nine manufacturing innovation institutes that make up Manufacturing USA.  Encompassing five states including Ohio, LIFT  is targeting the use of new weight-reducing technologies and  materials in industries such as transportation, automotive, aerospace, defense, and bio-medical. Research shows that lighter materials can bring better performance benefits to a range of components and products critical to these sectors. Through the LIFT partnership, MAGNET provides students with work-based learning opportunities including paid internships in lightweighting-related companies throughout the full supply chain. It also provides a financial incentive to companies hiring students. Working with career technical schools and colleges, the project will demonstrate the value of this approach to address the skill shortages in advanced manufacturing and will result in an advanced manufacturing career pathway. MAGNET recently hosted a roundtable for manufacturers to introduce LIFT and the internship opportunities available. Participating manufacturers learned about innovations to optimize product weight reduction and how emerging technologies are shaping manufacturing competitiveness and workforce solutions. Dave Pierson, Senior Design Engineer at MAGNET, shared technical information about additive manufacturing and its application in the design and manufacture of new lighter weight products.  To
