The software like most is evolving at a rapid rate providing added functionality that users can use to speed up what they do and how they do it, in turn improving productivity and maximising the return on investment from metrology equipment.

“We talk and listen a lot to our customers to understand their need for further metrology and software training,” says Sam O’Prey, Aftermarket Commercial Manager for the UK. “In the current environment, as UK manufacturing bucks the trend and continues to grow in some segments, customers are taking on exciting new contracts and projects. This often means running their production lines and quality inspection departments 24/7. In turn this produces a real need for additional skilled resources that have the best capability and understanding of CMMs and their software."

To support the new training facility the company has also increased course availability and frequency within its training calendar. The new facility is open and in full use now. The 2013 training courses and dates can be viewed at:
