HEIDENHAIN and ACU-RITE Introduce Education Support for Manufacturing

Partnership benefits North American vocational training centers, universities, and corporate trainee programs

Published: Tuesday, February 21, 2023 - 13:01

(HEIDENHAIN: Traunreut, Germany) -- To assist in training the next generation of manufacturing professionals, ACU-RITE is offering deep discounts on its line of DROs and MILLPWR G2 CNC retrofit packages.

Additionally, HEIDENHAIN offers a collection of educational services and products to meet the demands for today’s digitized metalworking. This worldwide initiative, called the HEIDENHAIN Education Support Program (HESP), will bring the latest advancements on the shop floor to current classrooms of vocational training centers, universities, and corporate trainee programs.

DRO systems for your mill, lathe, grinder, and EDM as well as the MILLPWR G2 control package.

Digital services and their remarkable speed are now commonplace and only growing. With HESP, HEIDENHAIN is making its own important contribution to training the next generation of metalworkers by providing highly cost-effective, state-of-the-art resources to educators, including computer programming stations, software, and other learning materials for fast and highly accurate milling and turning needs. HESP also provides options to train the trainers at significantly reduced prices.

HEIDENHAIN’s programming stations are based on the same software foundation as its CNC controls, thus making them ideal vocational training tools to give students the confidence they need to program in the manufacturing world. HESP’s learning materials provide practical course supplies for explaining complex topics, as well as support posters for the classroom.

Those who are familiar with HEIDENHAIN will especially appreciate the special opportunity for educators to obtain HEIDENHAIN’s Connecting Machining package of functions and its StateMonitor MDA software, as well as the option of its online HIT (HEIDENHAIN Interactive Training) program. Full program details are available on the HESP microsite.
