PartMaker Looks to Close the “Skills Gap” in Advanced Manufacturing

PartMaker Inc wants to help manufacturers take better advantage of their multi-tasking equipment through free or reduced cost training

Figure 1:  PartMaker’s applications team provides end user training in facilities in Chicago, Los Angeles and Philadelphia as well as on-site at customers’ facilities or via the internet.  PartMaker’s training is unique because it specifically focuses on the programming of multi-tasking Turn-Mill Centers and Swiss-type lathes.  For a limited time, PartMaker is offering free or reduced cost training to help manufacturers better skill their staff to take advantage of the unique productivity features of their multi-tasking machines.

 

October 19, 2011 - Fort Washington, PA – Today’s jobs situation seems to be a tail of two markets. On one hand, nationwide unemployment is hovering near record highs at over 9%. On the other hand, advanced CNC manufacturers are having a hard time finding the skilled help they need to meet customer demands in the face of increased part complexity, reduced lot sizes and shorter lead times.  While many leading trade magazines tout the benefits of multi-tasking Turn-Mill Centers and Swiss-type lathes, actual end users of these machines are finding harder and harder to find the skilled personnel to take advantage of the productivity benefits these machines have to offer.

“Catch phrases like ‘done in one’, ‘dropping the part complete’ and ‘one hit machining’ are becoming more and more common in the industry,” says PartMaker Inc. division President Hanan Fishman.  “However, while the machines capable of achieving these results are becoming more common place, the skills to take advantage of the unique benefits multi-tasking equipment are becoming harder to find. As a result, we here at PartMaker are bringing our unique resources to help manufacturers get more out of their multi-tasking Turn-Mill Centers and Swiss-type lathes by offering our training services for free or at reduced cost.”

The PartMaker Inc. division of Delcam Plc wants to do all it can to help close this skills gap by offering free or reduced cost training on its software. Free classroom training for one student will be provided to any new or existing customer ordering over $10,000 worth of software.  For customers only wish to be trained, PartMaker Inc. will offer a 20% discount to its standard training rates.  To take advantage of this offer, customers need only place their order in 2011, but can actually take the training in 2012 if they wish.

Training on PartMaker CAM software for multi-axis Turn-Mill and Swiss applications is as unique as the software itself.  Training classes are specifically focused on the issues related to multi-axis turning.  All classes are taught by PartMaker’s application engineers, engineers with decades of combined experience in CAD/CAM applications and practical CNC programming.

More on PartMaker

PartMaker is a Knowledge Based Machining system, allowing it to provide a substantial gain in programming efficiency by remembering the tools, material and process information necessary to machine individual part features.  It thus relieves the user from reentering the same features information for subsequent parts.  It also improves productivity by placing the emphasis on tool management functions.

PartMaker pioneered the field of CAM software for Turn-Mills and Swiss-type lathes with its patented Visual Programming Approach for programming multi-axis lathes with live tooling. It assures quicker learning and easier use. It makes an extensive use of pictures to help the user describe tools, part features and machining data.  Synchronization of tools working on multiple spindles is achieved by a few mouse clicks.

PartMaker Inc. is a subsidiary of Delcam Plc, the world’s leading developer and supplier of complete CAD/CAM software solutions.  Delcam Plc is publicly traded on the AIM exchange in London.  While PartMaker is sold direct in North America by PartMaker Inc. PartMaker is sold overseas through a network of sales partner offices operating in over 120 countries.
