Knowledge is a key success factor in manufacturing today, as topics, capabilities and training itself are changing. As part of its EMO Hannover 2019 presence (Hall 27, Stand B26), GF Machining Solutions will underscore its training Academy’s “Passion for Education” as a value-adding means of helping customers maximize the potential of the GF Division’s products.

In its 1,156-square-meter EMO Hannover 2019 booth with the theme “Connected to your needs,” GF Machining Solutions will showcase its educational opportunities and demonstrate its Academy’s remarkable, human-centric mission of managing the knowledge transfer from Research and Development to Customer Services, sales, application support and training. The Academy’s new training modules, as well as on-demand options tailored to customers’ specific requests, are specifically aimed at help customers exploit the full capabilities of their GF Machining Solutions machines.

In today’s ever-evolving manufacturing environment, the Academy’s innovative training is a qualitative and valuable “must have” for customers eager to realize the maximum potential of their GF Machining Solutions machines throughout their life cycles. In a special section of the booth, visitors will discover innovative training opportunities as well as consumables and maintenance solutions.

With a training philosophy based on GF Machining Solutions’ legacy as a technological pioneer with vast field experience and a long tradition of quality, the Academy will also bring to EMO Hannover 2019 a cadre of expert application engineers, all ready to discuss success-triggering educational modules and on-demand training options.

Today, the Academy’s curriculum comprises two tiers: “Learn to operate” modules providing in-depth training to help customers use their machines autonomously, and “Maximize performance” modules designed to develop users’ knowledge to an expert level and enhance machine performance.

EMO Hannover 2019, the world’s leading trade fair for metalworking, takes place September 16–21 at the Hannover Fairground in Hannover, Germany.
