Worker Training Increases Business Efficiency

Roseville Career Center

We at Prosper-Tech Machine & Tool LLC were grateful to receive $2,160 through the 2016 Skilled Trades Training Fund (STTF). The grant allowed us to bring a certified trainer into our facility from Open Mind Technologies USA, Inc. in January of 2017. Three employees were then trained for two full days on hyperMILL CAM software focusing on hyperCAD-s CAD familiarization, 2D, 3-axis and 3+2 programming strategies for optimizing part-making.

This training will help enhance our current talent by allowing them to keep up with current technology. We feel this is especially important at Prosper-Tech since we have an aging workforce who could easily fall behind. Since the training, we have been able to increase our efficiencies giving us more open shop time which has allowed us to work on diversifying into new industries for long-term sustainability.
