Mitsubishi Electric Computerised Numerical Controllers (CNCs) recently launched a training and demonstration caravan ‘CNC-on-Wheels’. This vehicle was flagged-off from the Mitsubishi Electric, CNC Technical Centre in Peenya, which will start its journey in the Peenya industrial area and then proceed to other Industrial areas.
The ‘CNC-on-Wheels’ is an initiative of Mitsubishi Electric CNC which has its focus on contributing to the improvement of the manufacturing ecosystem of India. The initiative will help in enhancing the skills of young machine operators and nurture their technical capabilities in learning the latest CNC systems.
The ‘CNC-on-Wheels’ consists of two major CNC controls: M80, which is the company’s flagship product and E80, which is a product with limited features, aimed at SMEs/MSMEs. The initiative is designed in a way that a qualified engineer from the company will always be present during the whole journey of the vehicle in the industrial areas which will lead to numerous benefits, such as sharing knowledge about the operations, applications, troubleshooting, explanation of specific features, etc which will be explained to the users.
Addressing the ‘CNC-on-Wheels’ launch event, Masaya Takeda, General Manager - CNC Systems, Mitsubishi Electric India, cited, “It is our prime interest that we are connected to the CNC operators and key decision-makers in the metal-cutting industry. By deploying a new training and demonstration vehicle, we will support to increase the skill level of our CNC operators as a step towards the government’s ‘Skill India Mission’ and ‘Make in India’ initiative.’ We will continue to support the Indian manufacturing industry like we have been doing for some decades.”
