At the brand new Training facility in Hexagon's Telford Headquarters up to 12 new and existing software users can be trained per day in a high technology environment. Featuring the latest state-of-the-art technical equipment the new facility provides the best possible environment for customers needing to learn about Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) operations and software programming.
David Brown, General Manager - Director at Hexagon Metrology Ltd said: “We believe UK manufacturing and its engineers have something unique to offer the world. Our behaviours and inherent British character drives invention and innovation creating cutting edge products and services. We believe that to stay at the front of the world pack we have to invest in our engineers ensuring they are highly skilled and above all maintain their optimum skill level.”
In the UK Hexagon Metrology have several thousand seats of metrology software installed with each seat having multiple users. 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.
