PartMaker (Fort Washington, Pennsylvania), a division of Delcam, is offering free and reduced-cost training for its knowledge-based CAM system in an effort to help manufacturers take full advantage of Swiss-type and Turn-mill machine capabilities.
 
Any new or existing customer that orders more than $10,000 worth of software from the company before the end of the year will receive free training for one student (these customers can take the training in 2012 if they wish). Customers seeking only training will receive a 20 percent discount on standard rates. The company provides training at facilities in Chicago, Los Angeles and Philadelphia, as well as on-site at customer facilities or via the Internet.
 
Hanan Fishman, PartMaker president, says the goal of providing free or reduced-cost training is to reduce the skills gap. “Catch phrases like ‘done in one,’ ‘dropping the part complete’ and ‘one-hit machining’ are becoming more common in the industry. However, while the machines capable of achieving these results are becoming more commonplace, the skills to take advantage of the unique benefits of multi-tasking equipment are becoming harder to find,” he explains.
