Siemens expands tech center near Chicago

August 11, 2017 - With digitalization and the rapid changes in technology, training is more important than ever to keep employees’ skills up to date with the newest industrial technologies. In support of this need, Siemens expanded its Technical Application Center (TAC), which offers machine tool dealers, importers and end-users of Sinumerik CNCs a complete range of learning opportunities including classroom training, online instructor-led training, and online self-paced training.

Operating since 2009, the TAC helps CNC machine users enhance their knowledge. Occupying more than 3,150 square feet of space in Elk Grove Village, Illinois, the expanded Machine Lab features three milling machines and one turning center for hands-on learning, plus a Kuka robotic center, and NX-CAM training station.

Two classrooms provide students with instructor-led, hands-on training using our exclusive SinuTrain software and Sinumerik CNC simulators.

“Manufacturers are continuously looking for ways to train their employees on evolving CNC technologies as they transition to digital factories. Hands-on training and virtual programs like these are extremely important,” says Sascha Fischer, segment manager, Siemens Motion Control, Machine Tool Business. “We’re excited to offer machine tool users a more expansive program to develop their employees.”
