Index has launched iXacademy, an online platform designed to provide manufacturers with training on a wide variety of topics in a flexible and convenient format.
iXacademy takes a hybrid approach to online training. Each session is initially held live in an online classroom, and then recorded to become part of the platform’s permanent library of on-demand content. Registered members can view the entirety of the course library at any time, ensuring that training is available whenever it is needed. After viewing a course, members can submit any follow-up questions for response from the Index training team.
The first iXacademy course, Attach Clamping Jaws to Your Gantry Arm, was held in December 2021 and is already available on-demand. A second course, covering tips for using the STEP and I_PRUN programming codes, is being added in January.
Initially, Index will host new courses on a monthly basis, with plans to increase frequency over time. Courses cover a wide range of subjects related to preventive maintenance, process optimization and machine programming. Additionally, iXacademy members have the opportunity to request courses covering specific topics.
