Allied Machine & Engineering (AME) has opened its new engineering training department, which provides comprehensive, hands-on education programs for new employees, end users and distributors from around the world. The training department instructs new associates in the proper use and application of the company’s tooling in all phases of holemaking solutions in metal. Trainees participate in a three-month technical and hands-on training program focusing on how the tools work and where to apply them in various applications. 

The 3,000-square-foot facility, located in Dover, Ohio, includes two vertical machining centers and one horizontal machining center to showcase AME’s tools. Each machining center features a dedicated camera with a live feed directly to 60-inch monitors, giving participants a view of tools in action. Demonstrations are available featuring AME’s tools running in a variety of materials including low-carbon steel, alloy steel, high-strength alloy, 304 and 17-4 stainless steel, structural steel plates, 6061 aluminum, and iron. Training demonstrations include active participation, with attendees helping to select speeds and feeds.

For end users and the distributors who support them, the company offers an intense two-and-a-half-day technical educational seminar (TES) featuring classroom and metalcutting demonstrations. These seminars, limited to groups of 15 to 30 attendees, are designed to keep participants abreast of the latest industry trends and the technology offered.

For those unable to travel to the training facility, the training department sponsors open house events held at machine tool manufacturers’ distributors, as well as on-site training programs for engineers and machinists. Customizable training programs are available for groups of all sizes.
