Hypertherm to offer online training
Jan. 16, 2012 — Hypertherm, a U.S. based manufacturer of advanced metal cutting systems, has announced the launch of the new Hypertherm Cutting Institute, an online training community that offers a number of resources for people who work with or want to learn more about cutting metal.
Key features of the new Hypertherm Cutting Institute include:
• Video tutorials providing thorough step by step instruction on a number of metal working subjects.
• Interactive e-learning courses on everything from consumable care and optimization to gouging, and cutting technique.
• Discussion forums and blogs where metal fabricators and hobbyists
can talk about their current products, troubleshoot issues, and share
ideas. As an added bonus, Hypertherm experts like Jim Colt will drop by
from time to time to offer advice and answer questions.
• An idea section called My Hypertherm Voice for visitors who want to
offer suggestions for future metal working products and then vote on
their favorite ideas.
“We originally launched the Hypertherm Cutting Institute three years
ago. Since then, we have seen tremendous interest in the site content
and realized the time was right to offer an expanded resource for people
who work with metal,” said Chris Lorio, Hypertherm’s director of customer training. “Going forward, our hope is to offer the site content
in many different languages so metal workers around the world can
connect with one another.”
Hypertherm designs and manufactures advanced cutting systems for use in a
variety of industries such as shipbuilding, manufacturing, and
automotive repair. Its product line includes handheld and mechanized
plasma and laser systems, consumables, as well as CNC motion and height
controls and CAM cutting software.
