The Barnes Group Advisors (TBGA), Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, will now provide training for Additive Manufacturing as part of its ADDvisor℠ Services offering. According to the group, the training on offer will range from online courses to short introductory workshops to intensive, hands-on experiences using innovative technical and training tools.

TBGA appointed Alison Wyrick Mendoza to lead this segment of the business in March. Rob Higham, Senior ADDvisor at TBGA, stated, “Our industry contacts expressed interest in having training in the Additive Manufacturing space available. We feel we’re in a position to leverage our team experience to do so. We plan to place a premium on accurate, robust technical content.”

John Barnes, Managing Director at TBGA, added, “TBGA is uniquely situated to provide high quality training for several reasons. We’re aerospace OEM trained engineers with hands on, practical experience using various machines, and we understand what it takes to qualify parts for production. We bring that approach, requirements driven manufacturing, to bear for what people need to know.”

The TBGA training approach is said to make use of the vigorous Systems Engineering approach used by America Makes, while expanding specific sections based on TBGA’s experience in the industry. Customer requirements will be considered in development of training programmes, and the training intensified depending the maturity of AM within their environment.

“The training will focus at the Engineer, Manager and Executive level, as well as the path from initial learning experience to advanced applications development,” stated Tim Simpson PhD, an Expert ADDvisor at TBGA with twenty years of industry training experience.

“There are many reasons why technical training in this industry carries strong value,” added Mendoza. “This includes increased engagement, adoption of industry best practices and processes in company culture, and a minimisation of technology failure or compliance risk, among others.”
