The initiative will help in enhancing the skills of young machine operators and nurture their technical capabilities in learning the latest CNC Systems.
As a company, we do not want technology and its knowledge to be limited to classrooms and customers only, with this initiative we are taking our state-of-the-art training methods to the skilled and semi-skilled manpower of the industry so that they can see, learn, and get hands-on experience of our products and are comfortable in using them.
The “CNC-on-Wheels” consists of two major CNC controls: M80, which is our flagship product and E80, which is a product with limited features, aimed at SMSe/MSMEs. The initiative is designed in a way that a qualified engineer of Mitsubishi Electric 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 of operations, applications, troubleshooting, explanation of specific features etc. which will be explained to the users.

Ltd. said, “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.”
