Note: These topics are in module form which allows us to custom tailor a program that meets you specific needs.
Press Brake Instruction
Complete press brake training from Materials to Math, Bend Functions to Tonnage Calculations, the fundamentals of Punch and V-Die Selection and much, much, more!
Documented reduction in scrap greater than 50% after completion of Asma's professional precision press brake training.
This course is recommended for both the operators and the engineers; get everyone speaking the same language with the same meaning.
Turret Press and
Learn the basics of both the Turret-Press and Laser. Presented in a non-brand specific format the attendee will learn to calculate punching tonnages and clearances, Laser gas selection to safety.
What makes a laser or turret press work along with tips on how to get the most from either.
Precision Sheet Metal Basics
Basic calculator math, just enough to complete simple right angle trigonometry. Blueprint Interpretation for the trade including Geometric Tolerancing and proper use of Precision Hand Measurement Tools.
Learning to select, care for and properly read the precision tools required for quality work and craftsmanship.
for the shop floor
Learn the basics of Inspection and Quality Control. This program is not meant to be a advanced course rather it is aimed at the shop floor. Interpreting blueprints for quality control. The basics of SPC charting and data collection and necessity of good quality paperwork and tracking of product.
The Squaring Shear
You will learn to square blanks, shear strips correctly and to gauge at odd angles the hard way or with half shears.
Couple that maintenance procedures and safety training, it's a well rounded course for shear operations.
Reading and Editing G-codes for
precision sheet metal
This module covers reading and editing G-codes for precision sheet metal. Aimed at the operator, you will learn to make minor adjustments at the controller to existing programs.
Reading and editing G-codes is taught by producing the code from scratch for a 1915 Excelsior Auto-Cycle clutch disk
Flat Pattern Development
A course that will teach you how to: layout blanks, 90-degree notches, closed and open angle notches, double flange notching and more.
Learn how the methods of forming can dramatically affect the results.
Extremely Small Parts
Here we teach you how to produce sheet metal parts in materials under .020-inches thick and to hold tolerances of
+/- .0015-inches linear and .5 degrees of bend angle.
You will learn about Photo-etching for the flat blanks, manufacturing custom tooling and Quality Control where measuring the part can affect the results.

"The training was
absolutely perfect! The content the instructor covered was right on
target and I couldn't be more pleased with how he presented the
material. It was definitely an eye opening experience for our
engineering department as I'm certain they did not know the number
of variables that went into metal forming on a press brake. And our
two floor staff who attended also appreciated the training;
especially considering the instructor talked their language and
related to their issues. I would highly recommend your instructor to
any metal fabricator who is looking to bridge the gap between
engineering and the shop floor."
