Iscar, another cutting tool manufacturer, has expanded product and technical training, hosted every other day on virtual platforms virtually, to help those just learning how to use the equipment be more productive.

Machine manufacturer TRUMPF has developed online training options with unprecedented access to expertise, such as webinars where customers spend about three hours a day in live sessions with instructors.
