Getting new shopfloor employees up to speed quickly can be particularly challenging for Swiss machining shops. Even machinists who have a good deal experience operating conventional CNC lathes face a learning curve when they’re put in front of complex sliding-headstock machines.

Swissline Precision is a Swiss shop in the early stages of implementing a more formal employee training program using MasterTask Training online courses. Those courses use video and animation to demonstrate how to perform various functions on specific Swiss machine brands.
