Seco Tools is in the midst of hosting free training courses at its North American Headquarters in Troy, Mich., as part of its Seco Technical Education Program (STEP). These courses ensure Seco customers and distributors are up-to-speed on the latest tooling systems and metal cutting techniques. 

“We designed STEP to keep our customers in touch with a rapidly changing industry,” Don Graham, education and technical service manager at Seco, says. “After all, without an in-depth understanding of the new metalcutting technologies on the market, many customers find the decision making process more difficult as the range of tooling systems expands.”    

STEP Courses, which include STEP Into, STEP 1 and STEP 2, are non-commercial blends of hands-on training and classroom discussions, providing students with both practical experience and technical knowledge to maximize the learning process. Furthermore, Seco can adjust its STEP training to suit specific customer demands.
