Machining Principles Clinic | 3 Days

Day 1 covers the aspects of the machining environment and how integral they are in achieving success.

Day 2, our products are explained and demonstrated live on the machine, showing capabilities and best practices. We also demonstrate our APEX software and how it is utilized to find the ideal tool and set of parameters.

Day 3, a group challenge creates a hands-on experience where attendees choose tools and applications to process a part with a live run-off.

Advanced Applications Clinic | 3 Days

The fundamentals of Machining Principles, including our product overview serves a basis and prerequisite for the Advanced Applications clinic, which extends the hands-on experience with several class and lab exercises and challenges.

After some in-depth machining environment essentials, the training focuses on how best to utilize SGS tooling by getting right into the hands-on exercises and challenges with different workpiece materials, geometry features, and application considerations.
