Expansion of Technical Application Center for Training



The 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.

Siemens TAC Sinutrain for Sinumerik Operate

With digitalization and the rapid changes in technology, training is more important than ever to keep employees' skills up to date with the newest industrial technologies. In support of this need, Siemens has announced the expansion of its Technical Application Center (TAC) which offers machine tool dealers, importers and end-users of Sinumerik CNCs a complete range of learning opportunities including classroom training, online instructor-led training and online self-paced training.

Operating since 2009, the TAC provides the ideal setting for enhancing CNC machining knowledge. Occupying more than 3,150 sq. ft. of dedicated space at its Elk Grove Village, IL facility, the TAC is a short ride from O'Hare International Airport. 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 state-of-the-art classrooms provide students with instructor-led, hands-on training using exclusive 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," said Sascha Fischer, Segment Manager, Siemens Motion Control, Machine Tool Business. "Hands-on training and virtual programs like these are extremely important. We are excited to offer machine tool users a more expansive program to develop their employees."

Siemens offers professional-level training courses ranging from Sinumerik Operation and Programming to Sinumerik service and maintenance. In addition, the following advanced training classes are offered:

  • Mixed technology operation and programming
  • Flexible NC programming
  • Multi-channel operation and programming
  • Advanced measuring cycles
  • Post-processor development
  • PLC commissioning and service
  • 4th-axis integration
  • Part and tool probe installation

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.

Utilizing Siemens' exclusive SinuTrain CNC simulation software, these webinars will demonstrate how to maximize investments in Sinumerik CNC from one's own computer. Siemens Sinumerik experts present monthly live training webinars, covering a range of cost-saving and performance-enhancing insights, techniques and processes. Webinar topics range from milling and turning, to general operations, maintenance and service. Attendees will also benefit from engaging Q&A sessions following the main presentation.

All past webinars are available for ongoing career development and viewing in the ever-expanding archive library.

Virtual one-on-one, custom tailored training courses can be requested for larger user groups looking to enhance specific skills of programmers and operator teams.
