Operators at many companies regularly replace half used metal cutting consumables.
Hanover, NH (PRWEB) June 28, 2013
Hypertherm, a New Hampshire-based manufacturer of advanced cutting systems, today announced the addition of three new educational events to its live training schedule. The company’s cutting experts plan to present at two Chicago area training sessions in September and one session in New Hampshire this October.
The events, valued at $250 but offered by Hypertherm at no charge, will feature Jim Colt, an avid fabricator and 35-year Hypertherm veteran widely known for his expertise on all metal cutting topics. Jim will cover plasma and fiber laser cutting technology and describe notable advances that can help companies increase productivity and decrease operating cost. In addition, he will review consumable care, show people how to properly inspect their plasma consumables, and offer tips aimed at helping companies increase consumable life. Jim estimates operators at many companies regularly replace half used metal cutting consumables, needlessly costing their company money.
Dave Dumas, Hypertherm’s AccuStream waterjet cutting expert; Dan McLenithan, a product and application engineer specializing in motion controls; and Hypertherm CAM software experts will join Jim. They will cover a number of performance strategies employed by the some of the best fabricators and steel service centers in the country. In addition, the New Hampshire training will include time in Hypertherm’s advanced Cutting Technology Center.
These one-day educational Advanced Productivity Training events will be followed by one-day ProNest Power User training events. Hypertherm CAM software experts will share advanced, process-specific, programming techniques for plasma, laser, oxyfuel, and waterjet cutting. Their tips are designed to assist companies with increasing their productivity, and will include tutorials on powerful production tools such as the integration of ProNest to an ERP/MRP system, the synchronization of work order flow and plate inventory, and efficient material utilization.
Registration for the live training events is taking place now at response.hypertherm.com/LiveTraining. Again, there is no cost to attend any of these Hypertherm sponsored educational training events, though space is limited to ensure a manageable presenter to participant ratio.
