Siemens Industry Inc. recently cut the ribbon to its expanded Technical Application Center (TAC) in Elk Grove Village, Illinois. The facility offers machine tool dealers, importers and end-users of Sinumerik CNCs a range of learning opportunities including classroom training, online instructor-led training, and online self-paced training.
Operating since 2009, the TAC occupies more than 3,150 square feet of dedicated space. The newly expanded Machine Lab now features three milling machines and one turning center for hands-on learning, plus a Kuka robotic center and NX-CAM training station. Two classrooms provide students with instructor-led, hands-on training using SinuTrain software and Sinumerik CNC simulators.
“Manufacturers are continuously looking for ways to train their employees on evolving CNC technologies as they transition to digital factories. Hands-on training and virtual programs like these are extremely important. We’re excited to offer machine tool users a more expansive program to develop their employees,” says Sascha Fischer, segment manager, Siemens Motion Control, Machine Tool Business.
In addition to the expansion of the TAC, a virtual TAC is also available to individuals looking to expand their CNC knowledge. The virtual TAC is open to anyone and available at no cost, allowing individuals to watch professional-series webinars online.
