HESP: the vocational training support program
from HEIDENHAIN

Because digital media are now such an integral part of our lives and workplaces, digitalization is urgently needed for vocational training around the world. In response, the FöPS training support program, originally established for German-speaking countries, is expanding internationally as the HEIDENHAIN EDUCATION SUPPORT PROGRAM (HESP).

Bring the shop to the classroom

A holistic approach to training NC metalworking requires the same resources in the classroom as on the shop floor. This is the idea behind the German dual vocational training system. The HESP sponsorship program from HEIDENHAIN helps bring the shop floor to the classroom, providing effective learning materials and programming stations for milling and turning to vocational training centers, universities, and corporate trainee programs.

E-learning with HIT

Find the perfect balance between theory and practice with the HEIDENHAIN Interactive Training (HIT) system. This self-learning program uses animations, exercises, and tests to teach the key elements of CNC machines and the basics of CNC programming. Practical workbooks also accompany the HIT learning software. The free demo version of the programming station allows students to complete and graphically simulate all of the HIT programming exercises.

The HIT multimedia online training system is based on the Moodle learning platform widely used in schools and universities. All of the learning content can be accessed on mobile devices. Teachers can even add their own content to personalized classrooms on the learning platform.

Fully connected with HEIDENHAIN StateMonitor

With the increasing discussion of Industry 4.0, smart factories, and automation, digital transformation is on the rise. HEIDENHAIN is meeting this growing demand for digital manufacturing with Connected Machining, a package of functions that connects all areas of production through the control. This approach is both extensible and readily adaptable to existing structures.

Powerful functionality in the form of HEIDENHAIN DNC, StateMonitor, Extended Workspace, and Remote Desktop Manager ensures efficient data management in a networked manufacturing environment. StateMonitor plays a key role in this. By collecting, analyzing, and evaluating machine data, this smart analysis tool makes operational processes transparent and reveals hidden potential.

You can leverage the benefits of StateMonitor in your training program as well, using it to connect the training shop with your classroom while leveraging functions such as machine status request and real-time notification. You can obtain StateMonitor at special HESP conditions. For more information, contact us by e-mail.
