Service Training

WENZEL Service Training enables your employees to get help with machinery faults by themselves. This is enhanced due to the modular design of our coordinate measuring machines. Often only a few simple steps are required to bring the system back to work. If the operator is unable to repair the fault, he will at least be able to analyze the exact cause to support our service technicians. Thus, downtime is reduced and working time and costs saved.

This training is usually tailored to the specific machines in your facility and tailored to your specific needs. Therefore the content and outline is created with you by our service manager so that you receive the maximum benefit.
