New SmartCAM Training Center Announced
Thursday, January 28th, 2016 - Springfield, Oregon - SmartCAMcnc has announced the founding of a new instruction center for training CNC programmers the SmartCAM Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) software family. SmartCAM offers applications for programming Computer-Numerical Control (CNC) milling, turning, fabrication and wire EDM.
Mr. Casey Baker, a SmartCAMcnc Applications Engineer will be the primary instructor for the SmartCAMcnc classes. Baker has over 30 years of a wealth of experience supporting SmartCAM in various capacities, and as a trainer in particular. He was hired in December 2015 to head the project and write the training curriculum, after working for several years as a CNC Programmer for a leading local manufacturer.
"I've always enjoyed teaching SmartCAM users of every level, beginner to advanced. The key for the trainee is SmartCAM's unique Toolpath Modeling, which treats each toolpath element as geometry, just like you would with your CAD data. Once that concept is understood, users quickly grasp the power that SmartCAM offers. It's gratifying to watch when that "light bulb" comes on and the user gets excited to see how SmartCAM will benefit their work." said Baker.
The new facility is located at the company's corporate headquarters in Springfield, Oregon.
Customers interested in SmartCAM training are asked to contact SmartCAMcnc via their website, www.SmartCAMcnc.com, or calling 541-344-4563
