Training in the USA

Training options

The USA is the oldest and largest market for Renishaw calibration equipment. As such, regular group calibration training has been a feature for many years. A one day introductory ballbar course has been added in response to customer demand.

Having invested in the hardware, procedures and staff to operate them, these training courses are designed to ensure you get the maximum value from that investment. Renishaw is pleased to offer the following training options for North American customers.

Ballbar classes (QC20 and QC10)

Renishaw Inc is pleased to announce a new partnership with Jeffreys Manufacturing Solutions – a Division of Phillips Corporation. With this new partnership comes trusted instruction of an Introductory Ballbar class in a new location. The training is held at Jeffreys, Greenville Technical College Center for Manufacturing Innovation in Greenville, South Carolina.

Ballbar testing and machine metrology (four day course)

Class covers the basics of machine metrology and ballbar testing. Each class covers a series of general topics (see below) ensuring that the student has a good understanding of the fundamentals of machine tool performance measurement and testing.
