Ishida Europe has launched the first interactive computer-based training programme for multihead weighers.
Called Ishida Expert, the programme provides fully interactive learning that is delivered remotely on a customer’s site to an unlimited number of users. The self-paced learning product offers best-in-class training for Ishida’s range of multihead weighers, ensuring that the equipment is set up, operated and maintained to optimum performance levels at all times. This helps to maximise overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) and deliver a fast return on investment.
“We believe Ishida Expert is a unique offering in our market, which will help all types and sizes of businesses introduce company-wide best practice in the operation and maintenance of their weighers,” explains Mr. Ian Atkinson, Ishida Europe’s Business Manager for Multihead Weighers.
“This product offers so much more than the conventional basic introduction training – allowing customers to really push the boundaries of their machine and line performance. The programme can assist all levels of learning – from introducing new employees to the machine to providing existing operators and engineers with enhanced knowledge and skills, as well as enabling senior management to maximise operating efficiencies and to get the most from their investment.”
Mr. Atkinson adds that initial customer workshops for Ishida Expert have proved successful with very positive feedback and high approval ratings from users.
Ishida Expert is currently available in English and additional languages are in development. Training programmes are also being prepared for other equipment in the Ishida range including checkweighers, tray sealers, bag makers and x-ray inspection systems.
