fryer 5 axis Manufacturer Training For Machine Tools

We have listened to many excuses by new customers for not taking advantage of training offered by the OEM. For example, the flights and hotel cost are too expensive or I can’t have one of my most valuable employees away from the shop for that long. Well, factory training can be scheduled so it won’t interrupt daily workflow, your employee obtains crucial knowledge and spends time with factory personnel that have operated the machine you just purchased.  Just think, when he has a problem he now has a factory friend he can contact.   That may save you down time and repair costs down the road.  Take the training it’s a great investment.

Caldwell Machinery Manufacturers provide training for the following machine lines:

  • Jet Edge
  • Strippit
  • KSI Swiss Machines
  • IWM Water Jets
  • Fryer, Mills and Lathes
  • Ecotech Grinders
