We’ve all been there. You like your job and you work hard every day. But there are just some things that are so frustrating and you don’t quite know how to make them better. Maybe you speak to your manager or maybe you keep your mouth shut but either way, if the frustrations don’t get fixed, they will eventually take over. Instead of focusing on the good parts of your job, you end up fixating on the frustrating parts until it really starts to become a major issue. Before you get to that point, Rob and I are here to help! In this episode, we are discussing how to fix job frustrations or at least how to manage them and make things work for you on the job. Email for Podcast Questions or Feedback: automationnation@radwell.comHosts:  Julie Basello        jbaselloholt@radwell.com                                                                                    Robert Tiedeken  rtiedeken@radwell.comProduction: Julie Basello and Patrick StewartMarketing and Promotion: Julie Basello Links: Radwell Automation Nation Podcast http://podcast.radwell.comRadwell International http://www.radwell.com

EPISODE NOTES:You wouldn’t think there would be much of a connection between Radwell and the music industry would you? Believe it or not, Radwell supports manufacturing in just about any industry you can think of, including the music industry. We have surplus stock for brands such as Sennheiser, Shure Brothers, Beringer, Harmon International and many more. Because of this connection, we thought it would be fun to supplement Radwell Automation Nation Podcast with a new subseries of episodes we are calling Radwell Rocks.In this episode of Radwell Rocks, we interview Rob Snyder, a Singer-Songwriter from West Chester, PA. Snyder’s hunger for music began at an early age and was encouraged by his family, as his grandfathers were musicians and writers. Snyder launched Revival at the Tin Roof on Demonbreun Street in Nashville in 2013. With the moniker “Hank and Jesus are Watching”, Revival showcases some of the city’s most talented songwriters every Tuesday with a church pew on stage. Snyder established himself as a songwriter with Luke Combs’ 4-Week Billboard #1 Song “She Got The Best of Me”. He is also a co-writer on “Dear Today”, a song on Luke’s most recent album. Snyder has songs recorded by Davisson Brothers Band, Will Hoge, and Nashville up-and-comer, Ashland Craft.Watch the video from the song Rob wrote with Luke Combs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2a9fgPI_PIRob’s website: http://www.robsnydermusic.comFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/robsnyderofficialInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/bigrobsnyder/Twitter: https://twitter.com/BigRobSnyder**************** Email for Podcast Questions or Feedback: automationnation@radwell.comGuest: Rob Snyder Radwell Rocks Host:  Clarence DawsonProduction: Julie Basello and Patrick StewartMarketing and Promotion: Julie Basello  Links: Radwell Automation Nation Podcast http://podcast.radwell.comRadwell International http://www.radwell.com

Did you know that manufacturing is the 2nd most targeted industry by hackers? These days, addressing cybersecurity is more important than ever in any industry but especially in the manufacturing industry. Although IIoT and Industry 4.0 in manufacturing create many positive benefits for operations, they also create vulnerabilities within systems. These vulnerabilities make it possible for hackers to gain access to an organization’s systems, equipment and critical data. Because smart manufacturing often connects entire systems, this often allows hackers full system access unless there are proper protections in place. Joining us to discuss cybersecurity strategies for manufacturers is John Janthor, Vice President of Information Technology at Radwell International. Email for Podcast Questions or Feedback: automationnation@radwell.comGuest: John Janthor, Vice President-Information Technology, Radwell Internationaljjanthor@radwell.comHosts: Julie Basello        jbaselloholt@radwell.comRobert Tiedeken  rtiedeken@radwell.comProduction: Julie Basello and Patrick StewartMarketing and Promotion: Julie BaselloLinks: http://podcast.radwell.comhttp://www.radwell.com

Is 3D Printing Right For Your Operation?In Radwell's Automation Nation podcast, Episode 2 , we discuss 3D printing and some tips to add 3D printing to an operation. 3D printing and additive manufacturing are interesting topics for a lot of people and not just in the industrial or manufacturing world. There are many operations that have probably wanted to implement 3D printing but haven’t added it because maybe they weren’t sure what they needed or how to make it all work. If you are one of those people, in the thinking stages of whether or not you want to implement 3D printing, this episode is for you. Our guest on this episode is Joe Waldman, a 3D printing specialist who works at Radwell headquarters in Willingboro, NJ.
