Operators at many companies regularly replace half used cutting system consumables, costing their company money.
Hanover, NH (PRWEB) March 25, 2014
Hypertherm, a U.S. based manufacturer of plasma, laser, and waterjet cutting systems, today announced plans to host two days of live training at Ontario’s Conestoga College. The company’s cutting experts plan to present sessions at the school’s Cambridge Campus on April 30 and May 1. Among other things, the workshops will show people how to improve their system performance, material usage, and consumable life.
The events, valued at $250, are offered at no charge to people who cut metal and other industrial materials. The April 30 workshop, titled Advanced Productivity Training, 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, laser, waterjet, and oxyfuel cutting and demonstrate notable advances that can help companies increase productivity and decrease operating costs. In addition, he will review consumable care, show attendees 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 consumables, needlessly costing their company money.
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 some of the best fabricators and steel service centers in North America.
The May 1 event will provide an in-depth tutorial of Hypertherm’s ProNest CAM software. This event, titled ProNest Power User, is for CAM programmers currently using ProNest or anyone wanting a thorough look at the software’s capabilities. During this session, 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 profitability, 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 is going on now for both events at http://www.hypertherm.com/LiveTraining. Again, there is no cost to attend any of these Hypertherm sponsored educational workshops, though space is limited to ensure a good presenter to participant ratio.
