Cleveland, OH – Tooling U, a provider of online manufacturing training, has developed three troubleshooting classes as part of their Quality department and also six new press brake classes.
The troubleshooting classes teach students how to evaluate problems on the shop floor by understanding the root cause of problems and studying their causes and effects. The students are encouraged to use teamwork and proactive solutions to create a safer, more efficient workplace.
Troubleshooting classes apply to virtually any type of shop atmosphere. "Many of our customers wanted to see troubleshooting classes because they wanted to teach their employees about the process of solving problems in the shop. We want to discourage 'quick fix' solutions that lead to greater problems in the long run," said Chad Schron, Vice President of Tooling U.
The press brake classes allow students to familiarize themselves with part creation and bending process on the press brake machine. The topics covered include safe use of the press brake, the components of the machine, operations performed on the press brake, how to operate the press brake, and the specifications of different press brake machines. "We already offered a full stamping department, but many customers still use the press brake in their shop and requested training specific to the more precise, manual operation" added Schron.
Tooling U provides a wide range of online training courses for people in the manufacturing industry. These courses are delivered through a powerful Learning Management System (LMS) that allows companies to assess training needs and track performance. In addition to the new troubleshooting and press brake titles, Tooling U offers training packages for mill/lathe operators, press operators, and assemblers, as well as custom-created training material for Fortune 500 manufacturers.
