Delcam’s PartMaker to host monthly webinars on advanced manufacturing
Delcam’s PartMaker Division will launch a new, monthly webinar series for manufacturing professionals on 31st May with a webinar on "High-Speed Machining”. Each of the four webinars will focus on an important area of advanced manufacturing. They will be conducted by a member of the PartMaker applications team with extensive knowledge and hands-on experience in advanced manufacturing principals and methodologies. Full details on the Advanced Manufacturing Educational webinars are at www.partmaker.com/webinars.
The idea behind the webinar series is to educate manufacturing professionals on some of the technological trends in CNC machining that allow manufacturers to make parts more productively. This webinar series will be purely educational in nature and is not intended to promote any particular PartMaker application or other technology vendor. The goal is to provide the manufacturing community with an on-demand resource to learn about the latest trends in the industry and perhaps provide individuals a forum to pose the questions they were always afraid to ask.
The high-speed machining webinar on 31st May will provide an understanding of what high-speed machining is all about and will discuss the benefits of high-speed machining. It will explain the types of tooling that are needed to use perform high-speed machining successfully and the CNC control functions that are required to perform high-speed machining effectively.
"The CNC machining industry is at a real crossroads,” says Delcam’s PartMaker Division President, Hanan Fishman. "Even while the employment market continues to struggle, our customers are finding it difficult to hire individuals with the knowledge and experience to take advantage of today’s cutting-edge manufacturing technology. A big part of the reason for this is because neither our primary nor higher education systems has made a commitment to teaching advanced manufacturing principles. We have a number of excellent vocational schools with committed instructors teaching the basics of machining and a number of colleges and universities doing an outstanding job developing the engineers of tomorrow, but instruction in advanced manufacturing principals seems to be falling through cracks of our traditional educational system.”
"With this new educational webinar series it is our intent to help bring more awareness of advanced manufacturing methods to our industry, so CNC manufacturers can remain more competitive and take better advantage of the latest manufacturing technology available to them.”
