Specialized training in metal cutting and machining theories can help keep companies on the leading edge of technology. Among the benefits: less downtime, shorter set-ups and better products.
Without proper training, companies risk falling behind. At best, a lack of training leads to inefficiency or an overreliance on outdated technologies or techniques. In a worst-case scenario, you might be an aerospace company where excuses about an improperly trained workforce just won’t fly — because your products might not either.
We approached a large aerospace manufacturer based in the U.S. with a solution that took into account the fact that the company hires a large number of new engineers each year.
Our Account Manager showed examples of the Training Modules of Metal Cutting Technology (MCT) to the manufacturer’s training manager. While the company was impressed with the modules’ potential, the actual training sessions were a real eye-opener.
Seeing the sessions’ emphasis on modern machining theories, the company immediately grasped how it could achieve greater efficiencies with part processing and programming, tool application and overall problem solving.
What we learned
The result of that initial training session? A much larger training engagement with us at our Aero Application Center in Fair Lawn, New Jersey. In fact, the training director insisted on the next group of engineers to attend a four-day MCT immersion session, a large commitment on the company’s part.
Proper training leads to less downtime, better understanding of up-to-date machining applications, reduced set-up times and improved products. With results like these, it’s easy to see how optimized training can help even successful, well-established aerospace companies soar.
