Online Seminar Library Introduced by Makino

Provides an educational resource to further North American manufacturing competitiveness

Mason, Ohio – May 2008 – Makino’s popular online seminar program has led to the creation of a huge library of multimedia events. The Makino Online Seminar Library is available at www.makino.com/library, and will serve as a multimedia educational resource to further the manufacturing competitiveness of North American shops.

“Our team of applications engineers has broadcast over 60 webinars since this program’s inception two years ago,” said Mark Rentschler, Makino’s marketing manager. “And we’re scheduled to have over 100 by the end of 2008. This means we’ve created an expansive library of highly technical information available for anyone who wants to access it, free of charge.”

The Online Seminar Library has been organized by topic to aid those looking to obtain information on technologies, techniques or machining processes. Topics include parts production, aerospace machining, die and mold machining, micromachining, hardmilling, high speed machining techniques and technological advances.

Each new live seminar consists of a 20-45 minute presentation and a Q&A session with the speaker, and each archived event includes the entire presentation, a transcript of the event, and an area where questions can be submitted that will be answered via email. Registration is required to attend but all seminars are presented free of charge.

Learning isn’t limited to trade shows
“For many shops, visiting a trade show has been the traditional way to obtain new information on manufacturing technologies,” said Rentschler. “This library offers a unique way for a busy shop to learn advanced machining techniques and about new metalcutting technologies without leaving their shop.”
