Training Services

Investing our time in you, so together we build better, more competitive product for your customer. As the industrial world becomes increasingly competitive, new technologies are introduced every year requiring manufacturers to constantly rationalize and update existing designs. As a result, successful manufacturers realize the absolute need for product training.

NIDEC-SHIMPO has a network of engineers that are factory trained and authorized to provide your workforce solid training on our products and basic power transmission concepts. The main objective of our standard program and materials is to better empower your workforce to size and select gear reducers and motors for any motion control applications. We provide this service at no cost to our customers, because we see the value in building a more knowledgeable customer and helping them more quickly react to equipment design revisions when needed.

Some other gear reducer manufacturers are not as forthcoming with sharing information with their customers, an attempt to hide their higher manufacturing costs or to use unreleased performance data as a “product differentiator”. NIDEC-SHIMPO views their customers as a long-term partnership, and we train and share information with our customers freely based on that vision.

Training classes can be conducted online, at any of our sales branches or offices, or at key distributor branches when requested. NIDEC-SHIMPO can also bring the training session to your facility in order to make better use of your time and costs. A thorough hands-on training seminar can be provided at our Glendale Heights, IL build facility, where customers can get the opportunity to completely assemble and test one of our Able units.

The NIDEC-SHIMPO training program options provide support for any budget. Our training programs improve your employees’ skill and knowledge competencies in the areas of power transmission and motion control while addressing any location, time, travel and productivity constraints. Contact your local sales office today in order to get a power transmission refresher on your calendar.
