Scytec Starts E-Learning Site for Machine Monitoring System
The online courses aim to help DataXchange users get the most from their machine monitoring software.
Scytec has launched an E-Learning website for its machine monitoring system, DataXchange. The site aims to show users how to get the most benefits from the machine tracking software with educational courses for all shop personnel.
E-Learning is a series of online courses that users can take at their own pace at any time. It covers topics including configuring reporting options, shift options, software installation, initial configuration, modifying existing machine data, system administration and understanding the machine data collection sources. The learning modules are a combination of text and videos with a quiz at the end of each class.
A subscription to DataXchange E-Learning is valid for 12 months. During that time, users have unlimited access to the site and the ability to revisit completed courses if they need a refresher. Users access the site with a single login that can be shared with all employees.
The company plans to add new courses frequently, so the investment will continue to provide more opportunities to learn.

Decisions about the cutting tools used in machining operations are arguably among the most important in modern manufacturing.
Introduced at IMTS 2008, this communications protocol for CNC machines and other manufacturing equipment is already helping shops and plants implement effective machine monitoring systems. Although these "early adopters" are motivated by the long-term promise of enterprise-wide efficiency gains, their experience with pilot projects shows that benefits derived in the short term are substantial and worthwhile.
