Advancements in technology continuously redefine the manufacturing industry, and Seco understands its metal cutting partners need every advantage to stay competitive. The company eliminates technology gaps for its customers by hosting training courses as part of its Seco Technical Education Program (STEP) that focus on metal cutting innovation and processes. Throughout the year, Seco conducts its STEP classes both at its facility in Troy, Michigan and various off-site locations throughout the country, such as manufacturing facilities, trade shows, tech schools, hotel meeting rooms and retail locations. While on-site training is for Seco customers, off-site training is also open to the public. Seco offers four different levels of STEP courses to accommodate all skill sets, from beginners to experts. Seco will also tailor a course to focus on a unique manufacturing challenge. For the second quarter of 2012, Seco will host STEP classes at these locations:
April 24 Cabelas Conference Ctr. 1 Cabela Way, Richfield, Wisconsin.
April 25 Bass Pro Conference Ctr. 1000 Bass Pro Shops Dr., East Peoria, Illinois.

All of the above dates reflect general training courses, except for the May 14 - 18 dates, which will focus on the aerospace industry. Overall, STEP attendees learn how to achieve substantial productivity increases, lower costs by eliminating tool waste, shorten machining times and boost competitiveness.
