HEIDENHAIN is offering a collection of educational services and products to meet the demands for digitization of data in NC metalworking in training the next generation of manufacturing professionals. 

The worldwide initiative called the HEIDENHAIN Education Support Program (HESP) promises to bring the latest advancements on the shop floor to current classrooms of vocational training centers, universities, and corporate trainee programs, the company says.

“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 that can include computer programming stations, software and learning materials for fast and highly accurate milling and turning needs. HESP also includes offers to train the trainers at significantly reduced prices,” the company says in a release.

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 include practical course supplies for explaining complex topics, as well support posters for the classroom.
